Team17 held off a couple of live streams this month to show off plenty of footage from The Escapists 2. We’ve added in both recordings below.
The Escapists 2 reveals multiplayer modes
Team17 and Mouldy Toof Studios are unveiling a new aspect of The Escapists 2 today. When the title launches, multiplayer will be included. Co-op and versus multiplayer modes are in the pipeline.
When playing online, up to four players are supported. Split-screen also allows for two players.
We’ve attached a trailer and information about multiplayer in The Escapists 2 below.
“Drop-in, drop-out multiplayer allows you to carefully plan and execute an intricate escape with your fellow inmates either online or locally, or simply hop into an existing game to help pull off the final touches of the escape!
You can experience the entire campaign of The Escapists 2 solo or by teaming up with others but however you choose to do it, escaping won’t be easy. You’ll have to work around the strict prison schedule and avoid the unwanted attention of guards. Craft and steal weapons and tools from within the prison, but beware of cell shakedowns! Get a job or undertake quests to purchase vital supplies, all while scouting escape routes – you may even uncover some unique escapes that cannot be undertaken alone!”

Yoku’s Island Express, announced for Switch earlier this year, has found a new partner. Villa Gorilla is teaming up with Team17 to have the game under the publisher’s label.
For those that missed it previously, we’ve included the debut trailer and overview for Yoku’s Island Express below.
“Meet our hero Yoku the Dung Beetle who has arrived on Mokumana Island to relieve the resident pterodactyl postmaster of his duties. He’s ready for the easy life, soaking up the sun and delivering parcels on a tropical paradise!
However, he’ll quickly discover that an ancient Island deity is trapped in a restless sleep, and a host of colourful, quirky islanders are plagued by quakes and storms brought forth by its nightmares. It’s all down to Yoku to traverse the island using a unique blend of pinball mechanics and open world exploration, in an amazing quest to help those in need!
Flip and bump our pint-sized protagonist around the stunning hand-painted island on your quest to rebuild the post-office, discover the mystery of the Fruit Altar, and wake an old god from its deep slumber.”
Yoku’s Island Express will be out on Switch in 2018.

Playtonic looking to improve Yooka-Layee as work on Switch version continues
Posted on 3 months ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch | 32 Comments | 0 Likes
Yooka-Layee’s initial launch took place last month. Of course, we’re still waiting on the Switch version – which Playtonic is still working on.
Aside from the Switch edition, Playtonic is also tinkering away on improving the overall Yooka-Laylee experience. The team promises to “add significant improvements and introduce some of the most requested features,” such as “the optional ability to skip dialogue faster, bypass cutscenes or reduce those pesky gibberish voices” along with an improved camera. Presumably this will all be included when Yooka-Laylee is ready on Switch.

Mouldy Toof Studios and Team17 pulled back the curtain on a new prison in The Escapists 2. The two sides are introducing Rattlesnake Springs, located in the Old West.
“Sneak around the sheriffs, make friends with the compound’s horses and explore the dark mine below the prison in the wildest lockup yet,” Team17 says about the prison. Players can team up with three friends to break out of Rattlesnake Springs with online or local play later this year.
Here’s a new trailer for The Escapists 2:
