We've got 330 free Steam copies of The Escapists for you

I want to break free.

Happy Friday! The generous people at Team17 have kindly provided us 330 full Steam keys for PC hit The Escapists, which we'll be releasing to lucky winners via a three-day sweepstake giveaway.

The giveaway is to coincide with the launch this week of The Escapists: The Walking Dead, which puts an undead spin on the original prison escape format.

We are running the three-day sweepstake from now until 4pm UK time on Monday 5th October. Winners will be selected on Tuesday 6th, with the lucky 330 able to redeem their Steam keys for a full copy of the original The Escapists on PC.

The Escapists: The Walking Dead is a standalone spin-off to prison-break sim The Escapists, where you'll play as Walking Dead main character Rick Grimes as he attempts to lead his group of survivors through zombie-filled scenarios lifted straight from the famous comic.

For a chance to win a code, simply enter your name and email address in the box below and click 'Continue'. To increase your chance of getting a key, there are four more ways you can choose to enter. If you would like to be the first to find out about our next giveaway, consider throwing us a follow on Facebook and Twitter.

Disclaimer incomiiiiing: We like offering you free stuff, such as access to the latest beta tests or even full copies of Steam games. But it's useful for you to know the mechanics of a giveaway before you decide whether or not you would like to enter.

To make sure that bots don't steal all the codes, this giveaway uses your email address to verify that you are a genuine, unique individual. (Some of our recent giveaways required logging into or installing an app on Facebook, but this app does not require log-in to any other service.) Whether you enter only once with your email or via any of the additional methods, Eurogamer will not collect your data and will never use your details for marketing purposes.
