Team17 have announced a sequel to MouldyToofs' sandbox sim of breaking out of the big house with The Escapists 2. It's coming to PC and console in 2017.
The sequel keeps many of the original's core elements but gets a graphical style overhaul, a new combat system, new craftable items, new alert system, more customisation and more things to do as you plan your escape to sweet freedom.
The biggest new feature is drop-in/out co-op play for up to four players.
"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."
The Escapists 2 releases on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 in 2017.
