Team17, in conjunction with developer Mouldy Toof, have released a new GDC trailer for sandbox prison-escape game, The Escapists 2.

Entitled ‘Welcome to Center Perks’ the new trailer showcases the brand new version of a prison which will be very familiar to players of The Escapists and shows off some of the game’s multitude of enhancements, including the brand new graphical style, new combat system, new things to do, new items to craft, more character customisation and the new prison alert system. All while retaining the trademark humour The Escapists players know and love.

The Escapists 2 is the forthcoming sequel to the multi-million selling, award-winning sandbox prison-escape game which will include, in a first for the series, drop in/drop out play for up to four players in both local and online play.

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.
