  • Two player split-screen play, and up to four player co-op and versus online multiplayer
  • Drop-in, drop-out online multiplayer experience. 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 that’s in progress to help pull off the final touches of the escape! – Create your con with over 300 customisations to create your perfect prisoner
  • A dedicated tutorial for new players to learn the basics of prison life
  • The Escapists 2 is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and will be released for Switch on January 11, 2018.
