The Escapists from award-winning, industry-veterans Team17 and Indie developers Mouldy Toof, recently celebrated its four-millionth download and is still racking up the downloads today. One of the most requested features from the players of this multi-million selling title, that never saw the light of day, was a multiplayer option. Now with the upcoming The Escapists 2 this feature is on its way and in the trailer below you can get a look at the actions you’ll be able to complete against your friends and fellow inmates online…
Budding Escapists will be able to take part in both co-op and versus multiplayer modes, playing either locally or online, for up to four players.
Drop-in, drop-out multiplayer capability allows you to carefully plan and execute an intricate escape from your initial incarceration with your fellow inmates either online or locally, or simply hop into an existing game already in progress to help pull off the final touches of the escape!
You can experience the entire campaign of The Escapists 2 solo or by teaming up with others but however you choose to do it, escaping won’t be easy. 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 undertake quests to purchase vital supplies, all while scouting escape routes – you may even uncover some unique escapes that cannot be undertaken alone!
