The Escapists Now Available for Xbox One

The EscapistsContent: The Escapists
Check price and availability in your Xbox LIVE region

Game Description: The Escapists is a prison break simulation that provides players the opportunity of experiencing a light-hearted insight into everyday prison life. While the aim of the game is simply to escape, the detail is in the execution. (Don’t say the word execution too loud in a prison). Keep a low profile or go out guns blazing. As long as you escape in the end, that’s all that matters.

Purchase The Escapists from Xbox Games Store
