'The Escapists' (ALL) Complete Edition Gets Nintendo Switch Date

by Rainier on Sept. 14, 2018 @ 1:09 p.m. PDT

The Escapists is a time management prison escape game that gives you the "freedom" to live the life of a prison inmate, ultimately plotting and pulling off a daring escape!

Escaping won't be easy though. You'll have to work around the strict prison schedule and avoid the unwanted attention of guards. Craft weapons and tools found (or stolen) from within the prison, but beware of cell shakedowns. Get a job or perform “favours" for your fellow inmates to purchase vital supplies, all while scouting escape routes.

All that stands between you and freedom is a perfectly executed escape plan. It’s Make or Break Time.

The release of the sandbox prison-escape will be the most content-packed version of the game ever released and will include all the prisons from the base game plus nine bonus maps, including one which has never previously been released on console, Fhurst Peak. Escaping won't be easy though. You'll have to work around the strict prison schedule and avoid the unwanted attention of guards!
