Hi PlayStation.Blog readers! Here at Team17 Towers we have some really exciting news to share with you guys. We’re thrilled to announce that together with independent developer Mouldy Toof, we’ll be launching the award-winning, sandbox prison escape game The Escapists on PS4.
A strategy game of captive survival and daring schemes, The Escapists gives you the “freedom” to live the life of a prison inmate, 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 “favors” 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.
There are 6 unique prisons to escape — from the minimal security of Center Perks to the harsh confines of the Stalag Flucht POW camp. On top of that there are 6 different methods to bust your way out including digging out and prison takeovers!
You’ll need some cash to put your escape plan to action. You can earn those vital funds by choosing one of the 10 prison jobs including Laundry, Janitor, Mail Man, Metal Shop, Kitchen, Wood Work, Tailor, Deliveries, Gardener, and Library work. Or you can even perform favor requests from the other inmates to earn some extra income.
There are more than 200 items in the game to find including 50+ craftable items. Craft tools such as Cutters, Shovels, Sheet Ropes, and weapons such as the Sock Mace, Comb Blade, or Cup of Molten Chocolate!
The Escapists will be coming soon to PS4! Thanks for reading — we’re looking forward to hearing tales of all your escape plans soon!
