Coming soon to PlayStation 4 is the award winning sandbox game The Escapists. Already available on PC and Xbox One, this prison strategy game is sure to have you planning your escape out of prison in no time!
The Escapists allows you to live the life of an inmate while plotting and planning your escape. Though it won’t be easy, you’ll be able to find, craft, or steal tools to help you with your eventual prison break. Guards are also problematic as the strict prison schedule causes them to constantly be watching your every move which can also be troublesome when crafting or storing your weapons; since they do unexpected “cell shakedowns.” Stock up on supplies by performing jobs for your fellow inmates while exploring new escape routes.
There are 6 unique prisons to choose from starting with the minimal security of Center Perks to the rigid Stalag Flucht POW camp. Along with the prison maps comes 6 exclusive modes to help in your escape including digging or prison takedown!
Though In order to make your escape successful you must have access to funds which can be obtained by working as one of the ten jobs available at the prison or do favors for the other inmates. You won’t have a hard time finding or crafting weapons as there are over 200+ items in the game with over 50 of those items dedicated for crafting.
Team17 Towers and Mouldy Toof are currently working on the port to be available sometime this year so keep your eyes peeled for this fun, high energy game. If you want to experience The Escapists before its release on the PlayStation Network, then head over to Steam or the Xbox Live store to purchase the game now.
