The Escapists 2, as you would imagine from the title alone, is a sandbox prison-escape game where you'll need to craft, brawl, and sneak your way out of some truly horrendous situations. Once it arrives it will feature 10 unique prisons to escape from, drop-in multiplayer for up to four players, support for a variety of different break-out playstyles, and so forth.

If you're wondering what all of this might look like in gameplay terms, wonder no more as the developers have recently released a brief yet informative trailer. Have a look:

The Escapists 2 will be coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on August 22nd at a $20 price tag. If you're already convinced you're going to enjoy it you can also gain access to an additional prison, The Glorious Regime, as a part of a pre-order bonus. Personally I would recommend waiting until reviews come out since they mostly arrive before launch, but if you're adamant about pre-ordering at least you're not risking a large amount of money. To learn more I would recommend heading over to either the official website or Steam.
