THE ESCAPIST 2 Is Now Available On The Nintendo Switch
The hit prison-escape game, The Escapist 2, developed by Team17 with Mouldy Toof Studios, is now available on Nintendo Switch. The original Escapist was originally launched on Steam back in 2015 and it was the massive hit that it warranted a sequel that has just arrived for Nintendo’s hybrid system.
The Escapist 2 still holds the pixelated sandbox prison-escape game fashion but has enhanced graphics and much better crafting and combat techniques. The game also included a multiplayer option, a feature that fans of the game asked the most. The Switch version of the game allows players to team up with another inmate via a local two-player split screen mode, that will take good use of the Switch’s Joy-Cons, or Pro Controller. For the first time in the series, players can now work together or face one another and see which convict can make the cleverest escape.
On Switch game will also feature 10 unique themed prisons to escape from, an online multiplayer mode, a very customizable character with over 300 customization options, and a dedicated tutorial for newcomers to the series.
“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!”
The Escpaist 2 is now available to download on the Nintendo eShop for $19.99.
