Coinciding with the launch of today’s free games, Epic Games Store has revealed, as per tradition, also what will be the free game of the next week, available starting September 23, 2021.
It is a single game, at least for the moment, but still very interesting: The Escapists, the sandbox set in a prison, in which we must try to plan the escape to freedom.
Published by Team17 and developed by Moldy Toof Studios, the title has given rise to a real series, all centered on the same concept.
Also characterized by a particular graphic style in pixels and a wide shot from above, which allows you to adequately plan the moves to be carried out, The Escapists allows you to study different escape plans and choose from the many possibilities made available to the player to carry out their escape project.
“You’re back in prison and your only chance is to devise an escape plan by any means possible. It’s up to you how! How about provoking a riot? Or dig a tunnel right under the prison walls? Or even steal a guard uniform to blend in with your captors?
The Escapists is a one-of-a-kind prison sandbox with tons of items to build and combine in a daring escape to freedom. You will need to be very careful while serving your sentence, and prepare to break the strict rules that will be imposed on you. The guards are determined to stop any escape attempts, so you will need to avoid suspicious behavior during roll call or when you are at work in prison and hiding your thefts.
Escape is your specialty and you will have to prove your skills in a myriad of difficult prisons around the world.
To find out more, we refer you to the review of The Escapists on these pages, where the game received a good evaluation at launch, which took place more than six years ago. In case you haven’t had the chance to play it yet, this is a great opportunity and we recommend that you remember to come back to the Epic Games Store next week to download. In the meantime, we remind you that the free games of September 16, 2021 are available.
