The Escapists 2 Dungeons and Duct Tape DLC Available Now

By Rebecca Smith, 1 year ago
Surprise! Developer Mouldy Toof and publisher Team 17 have created a new DLC pack for The Escapists 2, and they decided to release it today without warning. "Dungeons and Duct Tape" takes players to the dungeons of Locke Castle. Originally built to keep out invading armies, its modern day purpose is to keep serial escapists within its thick stone walls, surrounded by a stagnant (and likely vile smelling) moat. It's time to formulate another escape and to earn some new achievements too.

Dungeons and Duct Tape

Players will be able to try out new jobs and activities. You'll be able to become a blacksmith, something sure to be useful when crafting the DLC's new items, as well as serenading your fellow inmates with a lute performance. You might even be able to use that to distract the prison's heavily armed guards. The castle even includes a throne room, where you could be rewarded for your activities elsewhere. However, be sure to avoid some of the other inmates who are also looking at ways to escape, even if that means you come to harm. A full list of the DLC's features is below:

  • A brand-new medieval castle themed map to escape
  • New themed customisations for your inmate
  • New jobs. Light fire torches, carve stone blocks, play the lute and make horseshoes to purchase vital supplies you’ll need to break out
  • New items and craftable recipes
  • New achievements and trophies to unlock
Take a look at the launch trailer below to see what you can expect.


The new DLC brings along more achievements. There are 6 achievements worth a total of 250 Gamerscore, none of which are secret. You can find guides to unlocking these achievements as soon as we have them on the The Escapists 2 Achievements page.
