The prison sandbox The Escapists is finally coming to PlayStation 4 after launching on Steam Early Access last summer and on Xbox One on February 13th.
The goal of The Escapists is to escape the prison, which can be achieved by different methods: you can craft weapons and find(or steal) tools to prepare for your ultimate escape but you’ll need to avoid cell shakedowns or the guards but you can even befriend them to receive special favours.
Escaping won’t be easy but surviving won’t be either so you’ll need to get a job(10 prison jobs including Laundry, Janitor, Mail Man, Metal Shop, Kitchen, Wood Work, Tailor, Deliveries, Gardener, and Library work) or build trust with your fellow prisoners to get vital resources and supplies.
There are 6 unique prisons to escape from and, given the choices The Escapists gives to the player, the replay factor increases immensely especially if you count that there are 200 total items and more than 50 craftable items in the game.
