Launching on the 11th of January 2018, The Escapists 2 will mark the debut of the award-winning series on the Nintendo Switch following on from its release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
The Escapists 2 allows you to bust out of anywhere, with anyone. Team up with another inmate for local two-player split screen mode, taking either a Joy-Con or Pro Controller each to team up to break out, or work against one another to determine who’s the quickest convict to make an escape!
Risk it all to breakout from the toughest prisons in the world. Explore the biggest prisons yet, with multiple floors, roofs, vents and underground tunnels. You’ll have to live by the prison rules, attending roll call, doing prison jobs and following strict routines; all the while secretly engineering your bid for freedom! Your prison escape antics will take you from the frosty Fort Tundra, a train hurtling through the desert, and even to the final frontier!
