Despite the fact that I have yet to successfully escape a prison, or perhaps because of it, I'm excited to report that prisoners (well, prisoners smarter than me) can now escape from prison transports, presumably before ever getting to an actual prison.
Team17 and Mouldy Toof Studios have a new Escapists 2 trailer that gives a quick taste while (sadly) not providing any hints or clues for ways to enact such an escape.
The new trailer showcases 3 of the 10 prisons within the game, which share a unique twist, all 3 are different types of prisoner transport vehicles! Inmates will need to act quick and employ their stealth skills if they’re to escape the new timed prisons, which feature a variety of transit methods for the pixelated prisoners including:
Cougar Creek Railroad
Locked up on a hurling train chugging across the Cougar Creek Railroad, you and the vultures overhead know what fate awaits once this train reaches the end of the line. If you plan to see another sunrise you’d better disembark by whatever means necessary.
Onboard the H.M.S Orca you’ll find a pity of prisoners who are being shipped off in droves to a remote island far, far away from civilization. Not keen on being marooned, you’d much prefer to find a way off the boat before you stand about as much chance as a fish out of water.
Air Force Con
Meanwhile in Air Force Con, you better fasten your seatbelt! Only the most hardened of criminals get an entire plane during the escort phase. One thing’s for sure though - it’s a one-way-ticket, so you’d better act fast before landing.
