The Escapists 2 Prison Editor Available Now
Today we’re extremely pleased to announce that the long-awaited Prison Editor for The Escapists 2 is available RIGHT NOW!

Using Steam Workshop you can create your very own prisons, play them alone or with friends, or even share them with your fellow escapists via Steam Workshop. That of course also means that you can download prisons made by other players, and have a virtually infinite stream of new prisons to (try to) escape from!

Check out the Prison Editor trailer!

Want to get started creating prisons? Check out our handy Prison Editor Steam Guide on how to do just that! We have even created two extra prisons for you to play (Slammer Island and Gridline Correctional), so whether you want to create, escape, or both, we’ve got you covered!

Alongside the prison editor, today’s update also includes a number of fixes including ones to achievements, animations and performance.

Patch notes:
- Made various performance improvements on PC, OSX and Linux
- Fixed an issue creating a softlock when players tab out of the game and plugs a controller in
- Fixed an issue preventing the Minimap from expanding when clicked on
- Fixed an issue preventing to unlock the "Artful Dodger" achievement when playing as a client in an Online Multiplayer session
- Fixed an issue preventing to unlock the “Good Intentions” achievement
- Fixed a graphic issue on Wicked Ward which caused display issues on the lower floors when viewed from the floor above
- Fixed an issue causing the bike fitness machine animation to play even when no one was on it
- Fixed an issue causing the prisoners’ head to pop out of kennels when trying to hide.
- Fixed an issue causing some UI elements to remain on screen when quitting during Solitary and reconnecting right after
- Fixed graphic issues occurring when collecting Cutlery while holding a Food Tray
- Fixed an issue whereby changing Play Modes when Roll Call starts blocks Inmates from entering Purple Doors
- Fixed rendering issues on some resolutions with terrain graphics
- Fixed an issue preventing clients from seeing the Lockdown lights
- … and various other fixes.

Let us know what you think of the editor, and what you would like to see from it in the future. We can’t wait for you to dive in and show off your creations!

Sooooooooo Lets hope this will get EVEN better :)

BTW could you add Difficulty´s so Guards get Angry faster and other Prisoners sometimes miss Breakfast etc wich raises the stars (at hard or something so players will have to get along with random Lockdowns etc)

There are already difficulty levels available, as detailed here. We don't currently have misbehaving AI inmates however, other than the occasional fights etc, as we don't want a random lockdown to spoil the player experience.

Im very happy of course 😄, but is it a possibility to make our own zones in the future? Such as in the escapists 1?

I spent some time in the prison editor and I have to say that there were some good and some bad things but all in all I have to say that I found the prison editor from the first part was better

Can you do undeground area? Just first quick look show me then you can't do this jet & also there is not all jobs what you can use in main a game.

But, i still like to & wish option to save/load your prisoners/polices in selection/creation menu. It's also plus if you can rename/edit others prisoner workers too. :3

My thoughts exactly. I was hoping it would be a similar system to Prison Architect in the room aspect.
