Prison breakout simulator The Escapists is getting a sequel.
The catchily-named Escapists 2 will emerge for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next year, with a big new addition: multiplayer. Drop-in/drop-out split-screen and online, co-op and versus modes will all be included.
There's a more detailed graphical style, too, while retaining the pixel art look of the original. The increased detail allows for better character customisation - including, yes, playing as a girl.
