Team17 and Mouldy Toof have unveiled a brand new western themed map for their upcoming title The Escapists 2, Rattlesnake Springs can be seen in the trailer and screens below. There’s still no final release date for the game which is still slated for a 2017 release on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC.
The Escapists 2 is the forthcoming sequel to the multi-million selling, award-winning sandbox prison-escape game which will include, in a first for the series, drop in/drop out play for up to four players in both local and online play.
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 will feature:
