At TwitchCon 2016, Team17 and Mouldy Toof officially announced the upcoming release of The Escapists 2, the sequel to the 2015 hit game The Escapists, by releasing their official reveal trailer.
The game has all-new features such as multiplayer mode (for up to four players), new escape methods (escape through a window using the ol’ bed sheet method!), new crafting items, and even an improved combat system. Players can now lock on to enemies, block, and choose between light and heavy attacks.
In addition, new player customization options are available in The Escapists 2, including the ability to play as a female character. The graphics have been enhanced, and those incarcerated will have more to do during their time in the clink, like painting or joining a band.
From the official press release:
“I’m thrilled to be working with my friends at Team17 again to bring this new chapter of The Escapists to life,” said Chris Davis, founder, Mouldy Toof Studios. “The Escapists 2 takes everything the fans loved from the first game and adds in so many new additions and features on top. I can’t wait to see what the fans think!”
