It’s time to break out! The Escapists are here and ready to listen to your great breakout plan!
Mouldy Toof Studios and Team 17 have brought their prison sim to Xbox One and from now, you can spend days planning the very best of escapes…or just grab a knuckle duster and bash the hell out of the guards that are there to protect you.
Whichever way you go about escaping from the six prisons, you’ll find a light hearted look at life behind bars all played out with a unique style.

The Escapists is an award winning prison break simulation that provides players the opportunity of experiencing a light-hearted insight into everyday prison life. Whilst the aim of the game is simply to escape, the detail is in the execution. (Don’t say the word execution too loud in a prison). You may not be in an open prison, but you are in an open world where in between attending rollcalls, mealtimes and doing your chores you should grab every chance to plan your escape. Do you do favours for other inmates earning money and boosting their opinion of you along the way? Or workout and become stronger? Read to increase your skills or spend your time crafting items into homemade weapons and tools. What about working diligently in your prison job, to gain promotions to new jobs with better benefits? Keep a low profile or go out all guns blazing, as long as you escape in the end, that’s all that matters
Whilst The Escapists is available on full physical disk format, the best way of getting involved is to get it downloaded from the Xbox One Games Store right now.
