Team17 and Mouldy Toof Studios have announced that The Escapists 2 will be released for Nintendo Switch on 11th January 2018.

The game sees you breaking out from ten unique prisons, exploring multiple floors, roofs, vents and underground tunnels whilst you live by the prison rules. You'll be doing a variety of prison jobs and following its routines; all whilst secretly working on your huge escape.

It features a two-player split screen mode, allowing each player to grab a Joy-Con and work together (or against if you prefer), and a drop-in, drop-out online multiplayer experience that will support up to four players.

The Escapists 2 will be £19.99 / $19.99 / €19,99 when it launches on the eShop on 11th January but, if the excitement of prison escapes is just too much, you'll be able to pre-order the game early on 4th January. Are you looking forward to this one? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
