The Escapists: Complete Edition
Did you like The Escapists 2 on Nintendo Switch, and would like to (re-)discover the original? If yes, here’s some good news for you: Team17 has announced that The Escapists: Complete Edition is coming to the console later this year! It will be the “most content-packed version of the game ever released”, as not only it will include all the prisons from the base games, but it will also come with 9 bonus maps (including one never released on consoles: Fhurst Peak).
Here’s a trailer and some details:
Escaping won’t be easy. You’ll have to work around the strict prison schedule and avoid the unwanted attention of guards! You’ll need some cash to put your plan into action, so be prepared to get a prison job or perform favour requests for fellow inmates to earn those vital funds. Use your hard-earned cash to barter with traders for tools and crafting supplies, and make sure you find a good hiding place for your stash. And don’t forget to pay attention during roll call to avoid a cell shakedown – you wouldn’t want to lose that coveted shovel you’ve worked so hard to craft!
- 15 unique prisons to escape – from the minimal security of Center Perks to the harsh confines of the Stalag Flucht POW camp, this is the most content-packed version of The Escapists ever released on console
- Includes all DLC packs – Alcatraz, Escape Team, Duct Tapes are Forever, Santa’s Sweatshop and Fhurst Peak Correctional Facility which was previously exclusive to the PC release
- Multiple ways to escape – A variety of different methods to bust your way out including digging out and prison takeovers!
- 10 different jobs – Take on prison jobs to fund your fiendish plans, including laundry, janitor, metal shop, kitchen, tailor, deliveries and gardener
- Deep crafting system – Gather the necessary items you’ll need to craft items for your escape plan. Craft tools such as Cutters, Shovels, Sheet Ropes and weapons such as the Sock Mace, Comb Blade or Cup of Molten Chocolate!
