200°
133w ago - Fun Bits Interactive Team Lead Chris Millar has announced today that news of a free prequel PS3 DLC dubbed Bakuki's Lair with Patch 1.01 for Escape Plan.

To quote: On April 10th, Escape Plan owners will receive Bakuki's Lair, the first DLC Pack for Escape Plan, via download of Patch 1.01. This free DLC Pack adds 19 prequel puzzle rooms to the adventures of Lil and Laarg.

Our hapless heroes' journey begins anew with Lil and Laarg trapped in a hazardous sausage factory, where they will become bratwurst if they don't bail. You'll need to swipe for your life through a handful of dastardly designed puzzles in this latest update.

Lil is doomed... unless Laarg can figure out how this machine works

Bakuki's Lair is just one of the benefits of the upcoming patch. Escape Plan Patch 1.01 is a meaty new addition, with a host of tweaks and improvements based on player feedback.

Patch 1.01 allows for more pin-point accuracy on tap blocks, as well as an adjustment to the game's star rating system. We are also laying the foundation for a lot of exciting updates for Lil and Laarg in the future.

Laarg is definitely not in a safe spot
