When Escapists 2 releases later this year, it will boast a feature the original game never had, but many players wanted: multiplayer. Team17 and Mouldy Toof Studios have shared a brand-new video showing off the multiplayer modes, which will support up to four players, and split screen will be available for two players locally.
You can check out the trailer below.
Here’s more details on the multiplayer from the video’s description:
“Drop-in, drop-out multiplayer allows you to carefully plan and execute an intricate escape with your fellow inmates either online or locally, or simply hop into an existing game to help pull off the final touches of the escape!
You can experience the entire campaign of The Escapists 2 solo or by teaming up with others but however you choose to do it, escaping won’t be easy. You’ll have to work around the strict prison schedule and avoid the unwanted attention of guards. Craft and steal weapons and tools from within the prison, but beware of cell shakedowns! 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!”
Escapists 2 will release for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch later this year.
