Manual saves, new tutorials and more added to The Escapists 2!


Hi everyone!

Today we’re excited to announce the Inmate Induction update, adding several new features and improvements to The Escapists 2 to improve the experience for new and existing players alike. These improvements are based on feedback from all of you, collected from both the Steam forums, surveys and social media. Your feedback has always been very important to us, and we do hope these changes make the game even better for everyone!

Manual Saving
You can now toggle manual saves, if you want more control over when exactly the game saves. With manual saves, you simply walk over to your own bed to be prompted to save your game. This should allow you to try your daring escapes without risk of losing everything! Save settings can be toggled in the Help & Options menu.



Robinson To The Rescue
Wondering how exactly to start your career as an escapists? We’ve added Robinson to Center Perks 2.0, who’s the 2nd most knowledgeable escapist in the world – just behind Jimmy Locke, of course. Robinson will now appear in the game with a red exclamation mark above his head, which indicates that he has very special quests available for you. These new quests will teach you the very basics of perimeter escapes, including how to dig your way to freedom. If you’re unfamiliar with the benefits of using the prison’s payphones, Robinson will also make sure you’re in the know!

Beyond adding Robinson, we’ve also added a bunch of “signposts” in the prisons, where fellow inmates have dropped hints in various locations that could help pinpoint the best places to attempt your escapes from. Seek them out if you want some tips.



Improved Spawn Rates
If you’ve had troubles finding the items needed for your various escapes, you’ll be pleased to know that this update increases spawn rates for key quest items considerably. These items can now spawn in multiple locations at the same time, making it a lot easier to pull off that sweet, sweet escape!

Game Mode Indicators
We’ve improved the user interface to help make it easier to understand exactly how to play both local and online co-op the way you want to. This includes a clear description of the various online modes (Local, Private or Public), making it easier to understand exactly how to set up a game for just yourself and your friends. As a result, we’re hoping to only see Public games where the host intends for strangers to join the fun!



Progression Changes
We’ve changed the way new prisons unlock in The Escapists 2. Previously unlocking a new prison was tied to collected keys from unique escapes, and you used to have to complete most prisons to get access to the later content. Now you’ll instead have access to ALL the prisons as soon as you’ve completed three unique escapes, which will let you fully explore the game a whole lot faster!

We’ve also added a number of additional improvements and fixes, that you can find in the patch notes below.

Patch notes:
  • Improved item spawn rates based on player feedback.
  • Fixed an issue with one of the multiplayer doors on Dungeons and Duct Tape.
  • Fixed an issue with picking up makeshift ladders after placing them down.
  • Fixed an issue with vent shadows not appearing properly on Santa's Shakedown.
  • Fixed an issue with placing indoor tiles over the cutlery drawer item in the Prison Editor.
We’re continuously working to make The Escapists 2 the best it can be, and we hope these improvements make the game even better for all of you. As always, be sure to let us know what you think, and please continue reporting any issues in our Report a Problem forum.

See you on the inside!

Festive fun in free Santa’s Shakedown update


Deck the cells with bars and escape attempts! Christmas has come early in the latest free game update to The Escapists 2, featuring a brand new map – Santa’s Shakedown. Not content with life in a perpetually festive lock-up, you must devise ingenious new ways of getting out of prison without getting caught in the tinsel! Featuring brand new items and some very unique craftables, you must pitch in with new prison jobs such as Christmas tree-decorating and toy soldier construction to blend in until the time is right to ho-ho-hop out of there!
Wrap up warm, grab some fellow inmates if it tickles your fancy, and head to the Play Game menu now to experience Santa’s Shakedown.

Featured DLC



Things have taken a strange turn in the locked off rooms of an abandoned hospital. Once again, you’ll have to craft, fight and scheme your way to freedom from this eerie supernatural slammer.

About This Game

The Ultimate Prison Sandbox!


Risk it all to breakout from the toughest prisons in the world. Explore the biggest prisons yet, with multiple floors, roofs, vents and underground tunnels.
You’ll have to live by the prison rules, attending roll call, doing prison jobs and following strict routines; all the while secretly engineering your bid for freedom!
Your prison escape antics will take you from the frosty Fort Tundra, a train hurtling through the desert, and even to the final frontier!

Escape Team Assemble!


Unite with up to 3 friends to create the ultimate escape crew and engineer the wildest escapes yet! Jump online or gather round on a couch to prepare for your sneaky adventures. By working together you’ll be able to create even more elaborate and daring plans.

Feeling competitive? Dive into the versus mode and show that you’ve got the skills to break out of any prison faster than your friends can. If all else fails, settle your rivalry in the court yard with a prison punch up!

Create YOUR Con!


It’s time to make your prisoner truly yours. Choose from a massive array of customisations to make your character unique to you. It’s important to look stylish whilst you mastermind your escape.

Craft your Escape!


Being in prison forces you to be creative and work with the limited tools at your disposal. You’ll have to combine everyday objects like soap and socks to craft new weapons and tools to help you achieve your goal. Steal forks from the cafeteria to chip a tunnel in your room, and craft a poster from magazines and duct tape to hide the evidence. You’ll soon learn that duct tape solves (almost) everything!

Prepare for a fight! 


The Escapists 2 introduces a brand new combat system to make every prison brawl more exciting and interactive. You’ll have to block and tie together chains of attacks whilst strafing around your locked on targets to gain the upper hand in combat. Make sure your visit the gym first to build up those muscles!

New ways to escape!


As the prisons get tougher you’re going to have to get more creative with your escape plans. There’s a ton of options to tackle almost any prison escape.

Construct a clink!


With the Prison Map Editor, it’s your turn to construct a prison worthy of housing the toughest inmates! It includes all the rooms, fences and guard dogs you need to build a prison that’s as hard as your imagination makes it – no duct-tape required.
You can pick up those prison blueprints and start crafting your own creations through the Custom Prisons option on the main menu, and when you’re ready you can show the world by sharing them through Steam Workshop where you can download subscribe to fellow architects’ lock-ups – all custom maps can be played either solo or in both local and online multiplayer!
