Want to know more about how The Escapists 2 will differ from the original? More specifically, want to know more about the multiplayer capabilities? Team17 have got you sorted with the latest trailer.
Team17 and Mouldy Toof have today released a brand new trailer for The Escapists 2. Following up on the original title which has recently hit over 4 million downloads, The Escapists 2 will come with full drop-in, drop-out multiplayer functionality.
Being able to plan those daring escapes with their friends has been one of the most requested features since the series debuted, and The Escapists 2 will deliver a seamless multiplayer experience. 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. For the record, that will depend on which console you decide to play on, as Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC players will be able to play online multiplayer and local split screen for up to four players while Nintendo Switch players will be able to play online up to four players and limited to split screen for two players.
You’ll get the chance to carefully plan and execute an intricate escape from your initial incarceration with your fellow inmates either online or locally. Failing that, and if you wish for someone else to do the dirty work whilst you put your feet up, you’ll also be able to simply hop into an existing game already in progress to help pull off the final touches of the escape!
The entire campaign of The Escapists 2 will be playable alone, or by teaming up with others, but however you choose to do it, escaping won’t be easy. The strict prison schedule will need to be worked round, and you’ll most definitely want to avoid the attention of the guards. It wouldn’t be The Escapists without being able to craft weapons and tools found (or stolen) from within the prison, and as before, you’ll be able to 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!
Take a little look at the latest multiplayer trailer below and prepare for the release of The Escapists 2 on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC later on this year.
