The Escapists 2 Transport Prisons Break Out of Hiding

Posted on 15 Aug 2017

The Escapists 2, cooperative escape-em-up that it is has been rather sneaky in hiding one of its new features. But you, observant reader, have no doubt read the title and seen that this new feature is transport prisons. Three of the ten prisons in the game will be this new type, including a wild west era train, a ship setting sail for a remote island, and a plane transporting dangerous criminals. Sounds promising!

You can get a look at some of the new action in the trailer above if you’re eager to see what a prison zipping across the landscape looks like, or are eager for a bit of a Mission Impossible spoof by way of presentation. Unfortunately, you can’t pull off a metaphorical escape with toilet bowl hooch and will have to sneak, scheme, and occasionally fight your way to actual freedom on 22 August 2017 when the game releases. No word yet if you can get a leg up over the law with any of Team 17’s legendarily vulgar cheat codes.

Official Press Release

New The Escapists 2 trailer reveals series first with new transport prisons

I hear the train a comin’, it’s rolling round the bend

UK – 15th August 2017 – Award-winning international games label Team17 and developer Mouldy Toof have today released a new trailer for The Escapists 2, the follow up to their award-winning prison-escape game The Escapists.

The new trailer showcases 3 of the 10 prisons within the game, which share a unique twist, all 3 are different types of prisoner transport vehicles! Inmates will need to act quick and employ their stealth skills if they’re to escape the new timed prisons, which feature a variety of transit methods for the pixelated prisoners including:

Cougar Creek Railroad

Locked up on a hurling train chugging across the Cougar Creek Railroad, you and the vultures overhead know what fate awaits once this train reaches the end of the line. If you plan to see another sunrise you’d better disembark by whatever means necessary.

H.M.S Orca

Onboard the H.M.S Orca you’ll find a pity of prisoners who are being shipped off in droves to a remote island far, far away from civilization. Not keen on being marooned, you’d much prefer to find a way off the boat before you stand about as much chance as a fish out of water.

Air Force Con

Meanwhile in Air Force Con, you better fasten your seatbelt! Only the most hardened of criminals get an entire plane during the escort phase. One thing’s for sure though – it’s a one-way-ticket, so you’d better act fast before landing.

The Escapists 2 features:

  • A dedicated tutorial for new players to learn the basics of prison life
  • 10 unique themed prisons to escape from including 3 transit prisons
  • Play each prison solo or multiplayer with both local and online co-op and versus modes for up to four players*
  • 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 already in progress to help pull off the final touches of the escape!
  • A brand-new combat system to make every prison brawl even more bruising
  • Create your con with over 300 customisations to create your perfect prisoner
  • New ways to escape
  • New items to craft – Build yourself a homemade Taser to knock out guards plus many more!

The Escapists 2 will launch on the 22nd August for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC with a Nintendo Switch™ version to follow. Players can pre-order the game now via Steam, the Xbox Store and the PlayStation Store, with a physical version for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One available from select retailers.
