The Escapists 2 has been improving since its launch, and the developers behind Team17 were most likely about to release something new. The community was in need of something more familiar to help them edit on their own. Therefore, Team17 has finally released player’s favor.
Typically, by using Steam Workshop players can now quickly create their prisons so they can enjoy something new. The creations behind them will be available to their friends as well.
