Prisoners, those who pre-order will get access to an additional prison, The Glorious Regime!

In this pulse-pounding penitentiary, players will experience the thrill of escaping a hidden compound deep in the jungle. You’ll need determination and drive to avoid the unquestioningly devoted guards, constant surveillance, and the Illustrious Leader himself, in your bid for freedom.

Escaping won’t be easy though. You’ll have to work around the strict prison schedule and avoid the unwanted attention of guards. Craft weapons and tools found (or stolen) from within the prison, but beware of cell shakedowns. Get a job or perform “favours” for your fellow inmates to purchase vital supplies, all while scouting escape routes.

The Escapists 2 features:

• A dedicated tutorial for new players to learn the basics of prison life
• 10 unique themed prisons to escape from including the frosty Fort Tundra, a train hurtling through the desert, and even a trip to the final frontier!
• Play each prison solo or multiplayer with both local and online co-op and versus modes for up to four players**
• Drop-in, drop-out online multiplayer experience. Carefully plan and execute an intricate escape from your initial incarceration with your fellow inmates either online or locally, or simply hop into   an existing game already in progress to help pull off the final touches of the escape!
• A brand new combat system to make every prison brawl even more bruising
• Create your con with over 300 customisations to create your perfect prisoner
• New ways to escape .
• New items to craft – Build yourself a homemade Taser to knock out guards plus many more!

You’ve got a little over a month to round up your escape crew and get ready to escape the biggest prisons yet in The Escapists 2! Good luck, Prisoner.
