It's the most wonderful time of the year. I get to go home, eat turkey and laugh at rubbish cracker jokes. You lot get transferred to the San Pancho detention facility. I'm sure you'll have a fantastic time there. 

Update 6 for The Escapists is packed with new stuff, and it's our Christmas present to you. Here's the lo-down, cons: 


San Pancho Prison  San Pancho Prison has been added to the game. Your hardest challenge yet, the inmates are horrifically violent - even the guards don't dare enter. Good luck cons, you're going to need it. 

Tutorial!  You asked us for a tutorial, so we knocked you over the head with a flimsy shovel. Whilst you're dreaming, you'll learn the basics of the game - how to control your con, how to interact with the world around you and the basics of masterminding an escape. 

Be sure to visit sickbay when you wake up. Concussion is really, really bad for you. 

Localisation!  It begins! Our first localisation update is in the game with German, Spanish and French languages. This is VERY much a work-in-progress and we've set up a dedicated "localisations" thread so that you can show us where the gaps are. Find that here. 

Massive, massive appreciation for Sgt_Cuz for helping with the German. Huge, huge love to Gaunth for helping us with Spanish and our un-requenting love for AngeArtilleur for showing us how to French. Thanks guys <3 

Custom Dialogue!  You can now edit the things that NPC's say. Head over to the Custom Speech Files board to learn more! 

We've worked with 2 of YouTubes most popular criminals to bring you some custom dialogue files to get started with. Check out Warden Sparrow's file here, or add a little Punchwood to your game with Paul Soares Jr's dialogue file here 

New Workouts  You asked us to look at the "working out" situation, some of you don't like mashing Q&E, others like it. So, we've added new workouts that don't require button mashing to even the playing field!

Check out the punch bags, skipping ropes and speed bags in your facility's gym.

Head to the community forums to see the full change log including bug fixes and tweaks! 

We hope you enjoy the update. From Chris, myself and everyone at Team17 - happy holidays, many presents, lots of food and don't do anything that Jimmy Locke wouldn't do."
