Escape From a Christmas-themed Prison Thanks to Free DLC for Escapists 2

Ah, so that's where the "elves" actually come from

Mouldy Toof and Team17 are getting into the Christmas spirit by releasing some new DLC for The Escapists 2 by putting you into a Christmas-themed prison from which you must escape. It also looks like you and your fellow inmates have to wear some elf hats and make things... Hmm....

Here are the details on the prison itself from the announcement:

Celebrate the festive season with this snowy free new prison that has it all: state of the art equipment, high tech security measures … and an overtly theatrical warden who has repurposed the sports hall as a theatre and is more concerned with putting on an extravagant pantomime than the wellbeing of his inmates. Look past the tacky decorations and an opportunity to escape may just present itself!

"Santa's Shakedown" DLC is available for free on all the platforms on which The Escapists 2 is also available, i.e., PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The title supports four player local co-op and four player online co-op throughout.
