If watching the return - and end - of Prison Break once more has gotten you in the mood to plan your own breakouts; do it with a friend! The Escapists 2 multiplayer trailer should incite that spark.
Managing to reach over 4 million players without the sequel, The Escapists 2 has big boots to fill.
The Escapists 2 promises to be difficult. And why wouldn't it? Breaking out of prison should never be easy, and those who manage it usually don't stay out for very long. Taking heavy amounts of planning, brains and braun, breaching the walls of incarceration will be a tough gig whether you're backed up by friends or not.
Multiplayer plays out across the entire campaign - meaning while you'd usually expect to run through the job on your own, it's entirely possible to conduct the complicated mission with inmates who just happen to be your mates. Of course, more players means more opportunities - but a higher risk of human error.
The Escapists 2 involves strategically manoeuvring around prison guards and their patrol times, taking up the odd job for essential supplies and finding a way to find, make and keep the weapons and tools pivotal to your survival. A friend could help just as much as they can hinder.
