Publisher Team 17 and developer Mouldy Toof Studios have a new video for you to look over in the form of The Escapists 2. The new trailer reveals the release date for the indie pixel game, which is due for release across PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 22nd.
Thought you were done? The Escapists 2 will pull you back in and have you trying to escape once more. The second game that is due for release next month will have players in for a crazy ride, while attempting to escape from a hidden and fortified compound in the deep jungle.
The new video trailer above comes from publisher Team 17‘s YouTube channel. Moreover, escaping won’t be easy or a walk in the park in the second game. You will have to learn and work around the new prison compound schedule to avoid attention of guards patrolling and from being caught… again.
Crafting weapons and tools are an essential part of your great escape from within the new prison, located deep in the jungle. Other actions like getting a job or performing special “favors” for your fellow inmates will help in escaping the compound, too.
Other in-game features include 10 unique themed prisons to escape from, multiplayer that allows for local, online co-op and versus play (up to four players), a brand new combat system that sees more “brutal” action, an improved create a character/con that sees over 300 custom parts and clothes, and, of course, more ways to escape.
The game will likely hold much more content as well as hidden features for gamers to search out and find during a playthrough, but I’m sure more info on that will follow suit in the near future given that the game’s release is just around the corner.
The Escapists 2 is set to release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on August 22nd. You can read the aforesaid and then some over on team17.com regarding all things The Escapists 2.
