One of the best things about Christmas is the numerous gifts that appear and Team17 have already begun to deliver these early, as we’ve seen with their 25th anniversary celebrations [more news here]. Well now they’ve also released the news on an upcoming The Escapists DLC that will be appearing on the 9th December. Seasonally titled Santa’s Sweatshop this will be available to download for Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program, also the PS4 and PC on the 9th December and what’s extra special about this DLC is that it’s completely free!
After suffering Santa’s cruel regime for the last 20 years, it’s time for you to leave it all behind and get back home to enjoy Christmas with your real family. Sick and tired of bad working conditions and zero pay, you decide to give Santa a present of your own and hit him where it hurts most and escape his sweatshop once and for all!
The Escapists – Santa’s Sweatshop DLC features:
- All new items and craftables to really get you in to the Christmas spirit!
- Christmas themed level, jobs, characters and dialogue to get you through your working day!
- Get festive – despite the fact your poor elf fingers are worked to the bone!
- Fresh and festive soundtrack to soak up as you plot your escape!
- All new achievements/trophies for you to track down as well as the possibility of topping the Leaderboard!
