If you've ever been to military boot camp, then playing The Escapists—a game about prison life—will give you mild flashbacks. The routines. The walls. The uniforms. The guards. Well, The Escapists: The Escape Team DLC, which has maybe one too many The's in its name, combines the worst of both worlds. You and three other inmates will plot a jailbreak from a military prison.
Judging by the new tile set, it's a military prison in Afghanistan, and the yard prominently features a gold-plated tank. That oughta make this a jailbreak for the history books. The DLC comes with six new achievements/trophies to unlock as you trade porn mags for razor blades and bide your time among fatigue-wearing military police.
I went to Navy boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois, back in the late '90s. Two days in, one recruit made a break for it and jumped the fence. Little did she know that boot camp was simply a fenced off area inside of a larger Navy base compound. That was good for a laugh.
The Escape Team DLC does hard time on PC ($3.99), PlayStation 4 ($4.49), and Xbox One ($4.49) starting June 30.
