The Escapists 2 - multiplayer

Here’s our first look at multiplayer in The Escapists 2.

Team17 and Mouldy Toof have released a new multiplayer trailer for the upcoming prison-escape game, The Escapists 2.

Multiplayer has been a long-standing request from fans of The Escapists – which has now reached over four million downloads – and it looks like developer Mouldy Toof has embraced the challenge full on.

Players will be able to escape together in co-op and versus multiplayer modes, playing either locally or online with up to four players. The ability to drop-in and drop-out will let you plan and execute intricate escapes with friends, or you can jump straight into a breakout in progress.

The Escapists 2‘s campaign – which will be playable solo or with other players – builds on the first game’s mix of adhering to a daily prison schedule and avoiding the attention of guards, whilst weapon crafting, scouting and planning your escape. The sequel features a completely revamped combat system, and a range of new customisation options.

We’ll be playing the game at next week’s E3, and will report back with hands-on impressions. Assuming we escape, of course.

The Escapists 2 is confirmed for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC later in 2017.
