Core Campaign

For starters, the main campaign remains intact with all of its six stages. You have to unlock every single one of them except for the first one (obviously) so good luck figuring out how to break out of these tricky situations! v1d30chumz 44-201-94-72

Bonus Content

Now, here's the fun part! The Escapists: Complete Edition contains all 9 bonus prisons that were previously released either as paid DLC or through free updates and downloads. Before getting to the list, allow me to explain some fun stand-out aspects. Unlike the core stages, these can be accessed at any time and in any order so you can feel free to jump straight into your favourite. Speaking of favourites, some noteworthy stages include Escape Team which allows you to swap between 4 prisoners who resemble the cast of The A-Team, Duct Tapes are Forever which has you play as a James Bond inspired spy with inmates named similarly to Bond actors, and Santa's Sweatshop where you control an elf who desperately wants to escape the far from jolly Claus. Anyway, here are all nine bonus stages:

  1. London Tower
  2. Banned Camp
  3. Jingle Cells
  4. Paris Central Pen
  5. Fhurst Peak Correctional
  6. Alcatraz
  7. Escape Team
  8. Duct Tapes are Forever
  9. Santa's Sweatshop
