The Escapists 2 Reveal Trailer!
PRISONERS!

I want to start with a quick thank you to the amazing community that has made The Escapists the success it is. You tunnelled with us through Early Access, busted out of some of the world’s toughest prisons, and even fought off the dead in The Escapists: The Walking Dead[ http].

And now it’s my pleasure to introduce you to the future of The Escapists…

The Escapists 2!
The first thing that you’ll notice when looking at The Escapists 2 are the visuals. Prison has never looked so good, and the new art style extends to a deeper variety of character customisation. When you look that good, it’s only natural to want to show it off, and now you can…

For the first time in Escapists history, you can team up with up to 3 other players in both co-op and competitive modes. Your escape team far away? Fear not Prisoner as the Escapist 2 will feature local and online, drop in/drop out multiplayer!

We’ll have a ton of news about the game going forward, but in the meantime why not watch the new trailer?

Now that you’ve watched the trailer, we'd love to hear what you think!

FML, now I'm hyped AF because of all these features that I've desired:

• Multiplayer – In a first for the series, The Escapists 2 offers drop-in/drop-out play offering both split screen and online play for up to four players in both co-op and versus modes!

• New ways to escape - Tie together knotted sheets and use them to climb down high windows in our new multi-level prisons and other new ways to make a break for freedom!

• New items to craft – Build yourself a homemade taser to knock out guards plus many more!

• New combat system – A completely revamped combat system featuring new lock-on targeting and blocking systems plus light and heavy attacks

• New graphical style – A brand new look immerses players in a deeper, richer world while maintaining that unique The Escapists style.

• More character customisation – New customisation options let players tweak their avatar to a whole new level including the option to play as a male or female escapist! Go bald! Sport a mullet! The choice is yours...

• More things to do – Join a band! Learn to paint! The Escapists 2 will offer more ways than ever to pass the time whilst incarcerated.

I love The Escapists and will definitely keep looking at The Escapists 2. All the new features and the improved, more detailed art style are fantastic so far. Multiplayer is a cool addition too, looking forward to outbreaks a la "Prison Break" (TV-show). Adding the option to play as a female character is a great addition as well. Thank you for that. :>

One thing tho. Considering that The Escapists 2 will come to Xbox One, would it be possible to implement gamepad-support on PC as well? I'm sure there are quite a few people who prefer to play with a gamepad on PC instead of using mouse and keyboard.

You really should give a discount to those who have The Escapists 1, or to those who bought The Escapists 1 before the 2nd comes out.

Not to be "that guy", but will the Escapists 2 be ACUALLY more entertaining than prison break mode on prison architect?

Like, no more instant teleportations to solitary? Not as repetitive gameplay?

Sincerely: that guy who was upset about the first one.

Yes please, at least let me try to run away, hide items, or finish my escape when I get caught...

Any other new escapes besides the ones you showed?
And how the heck do you escape by being sick?

And I couldn't agree more, having spent 100 hours in Escapists 1.

It's called marketing tactics. Why release a free update when you can release a whole new game and charge people a few bucks for it?
