Team17 is launching a brand new update for The Escapists 2 today on Nintendo Switch, adding some festive fun for the low price of free.

The new content comes in the form of a 'Snow Way Out' update, introducing a new festive-themed prison for you to wriggle your way out of; four new jobs - burning letters to Santa, engineering, reindeer feeding, and servicing the robot workers; new items to forge and a new craftable weapon called the Candy Pain; and unique ways to escape.

The trailer above should give you an idea of what to expect, but we also have this lovely description straight from the publisher:

"Following on from last year’s free Santa’s Shakedown release, Santa has now ditched his mantra of good will to all and has instead opened a booming online retail store. His sleigh sits abandoned, as new delivery sleighs ship products all around the world. The North Pole now contains warehouses and concrete cells to contain the poor elves forced to work for Santa. You still better be on your best behaviour, as waking up with a lump of coal in your desk is the least of your concerns!"

As mentioned above, this update launches today for free. Team17 has also recently teased some festive and free content for Overcooked 2 - we'll make sure to keep an eye out for more info on that in the coming days.

Will you be heading back to prison for another escape? Tell us below.
