Escape Plan: The Asylum DLC Hits PSN Today for Just 25 Cents

Chris Millar's Avatar Posted by CEO, Fun Bits Interactive

Update: An earlier version of this post cited incorrect pricing information. We regret the error.


It’s an insane time for Escape Plan, as we have a ton of new content launching for everyone this week: The Asylum DLC arrives for just 2 25 cents, Patch 1.02 goes live, five free Avatars are coming for PS Plus members and the Escape Plan Demo will be available for all PS Vita players – all with today’s PS Store publish!


Since launch, our fans have chipped in to provide feedback and thoughts on Escape Plan. All of these little nuggets of advice and tips have helped us to improve and change the overall experience, and so for a limited time, we’re giving back to fans by dropping The Asylum DLC from $4.99 to a just a handful of change — $0.25, to be exact.


The gameplay of The Asylum picks up right where Lil and Laarg left off at the end of Escape Plan. Lil and Laarg travel through a sewer pipe, only to find themselves in Bakuki’s Asylum. This latest conundrum is filled with padded walls, shocking minions, gruesome blades of mass destruction and even more helpless sheep.


The Asylum delivers a ton of crazy content, including the Lil and Laarg Dressing Room where fans can check out the God and Luchadore Super Pack costumes, with the Poindexter and Super Hero costumes unlockable by playing through all of the 18 Asylum levels.

We are also introducing seven new Challenge Modes and four more Trophies!


Everyone will receive patch 1.02, which will give them the first two Dressing Room costumes for Lil and Laarg and a handful of gameplay improvements, but only The Asylum DLC will open up the new levels, trophies and remaining costumes.

After the limited two-week 25-cent promotion, Escape Plan The Asylum will be available in the PSN Store for $4.99 on June 26th, 2012.

For those who have yet to pick up Escape Plan, we are happy to announce the release of the official Escape Plan Demo! This teaser gives fans a taste of 16 puzzling levels from the original game. Be sure to give it a try and, as always, we’d love to get your feedback in the comments below.

I will buy the DLC before I will buy the game. Don’t own it yet. waiting on a bigger memory card.

I’m planning on buying Escape Plan on the EU psn because of the upcoming discount. So I’d like to know if there will be a similar £0.02 offer for the DLC in the EU?

Awesome! That is nice that you are supporting the early adopters of your game. I thought about waiting for a sale but a while back I decided to pay full price. I’ve been enjoying the game so far and I appreciate all the enhancements and new levels.


June 12th, 9:13 am

Where do I download the DLC to fix the horrid controls?

SnakeApprentice said:

June 12th, 9:14 am

That is UN-believable. You guys are showing XTREME concern for your fans. Can’t wait fpr your next Vita game!

You are turning me into a big fan of Fun Bits.

Gosh!! You guys are breaking my wallet!!! 2 cents for the love!!! Lol Seriously though you bet every Escape Plan owner out there will get this, I mean how can you not for 2 cents. I’m glad you guys decided to add a few more trophies since I already got all the previous ones. Now the only thing you guys need to do is help with PS All-Stars so they can do an Escape Plan level, I mean how can you not with all the possible hazards on them. ;) Keep up the good work guys! Escape Plan rocks!

idk about this, i mean 2 cents seems ah bit to steep on my end. i may look into it though, we should see.

Klart said:

Please do this for your EU fans as well.

luvtoseek said:

Sold! Escape Plan + DLC will be mine this day! Thanks for the great post, Chris!

FORMIK said:

The controls are fine. The game is great. In fact, they released a patch before to fix some problems players had, and looks like they’re addressing even more. This is a developer that will get my support.

FORMIK said:

June 12th, 9:39 am

By the way, awesome costumes! Let’s get those as avatars.

Could you also release in a future update a way to compete with friends on overall time completing the main game and DLC packs? A total time for each could appear in a leaderboard.

Wow 2¢ that’s awesome, I almost feel bad buying it at that price and find myself wondering if I should wait until it’s 4.99 to show them my appreciation… but 2¢ is too good of a deal to pass.

I would’ve gladly paid full value for more Escape Plan.. This is indeed a nice treat.

This is too generous. Thank you.

ChazzH69 said:

June 12th, 10:03 am

That’s good to hear (read), only 2 cents. So that works out as £15 for people in the UK.

oycomics said:

June 12th, 10:03 am

Wow! I have exactly 4 cents in my PSN wallet right now. Any way I can buy it twice? lol

NoGodsOnlyMan said:

June 12th, 11:18 am

a demo finally! Now I can try this game and (if I like it) buy it, thank you, a demo is a must for me on digital only games since I’ve regreted buying before

iTofuMan said:

June 12th, 11:28 am

I’m glad there is finally a demo. i have been meaning to try this out since watching videos can only take you so far. personally im still on the fence for this game. it seems nice, but i dont know. seeing the DLC gets me somewhat excited.

duke301 said:

Escape Plan is a truly fabulous game. More Escape Plan for $.25 is even better! I might just have to pick this one up. A note to Sony: The Vita needs more games like Escape Plan! Thanks a lot!

ck2875 said:

June 12th, 12:10 pm

Definitely picking this up for 25 cents. And yay for more trophies.

I see inflation has struck. just a bit ago it was just 2 cents.

    That was my bad. But in terms of errors, being off less than a quarter isn’t awful.

subadictos said:

June 12th, 12:45 pm

OK, cool. But… I don’t have the game yet and I’m waiting for Sony. Why? Because in Europe users will have discounts in six games: Escape Plan, Hustle Kings, Motorstorm RC, Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!, Top Darts and Super Stardust Delta + Advanced Star Fighter Pack. What about here, eh???

ShugoWah said:

June 12th, 12:51 pm

“There’s new DLC coming for Escape Plan!”

yeah that’s pretty cool but i’m buying gravity rush today so-

“It’s only $0.25 because we love you guys so much!”

oh wow that’s awesome but i already got all the trophies and uninstalled it and lost my save file so-

“There’s four new trophies!”


Ice21 said:

June 12th, 12:53 pm

i thought it was 2 cents. but who really care anyways cuz its still less than a dollar! gonna get it!!!

Frejim said:

June 12th, 1:51 pm

that’s the price all DLC should be!

PainOfSarrow said:

June 12th, 1:51 pm

you son of a GUNSSSSS, you raised it up to 25 Cents… it said 2 Cents. now im realy not getting it. 2 Cents alone was steep enough but this is outrageous…..

TwinDad said:

June 12th, 2:05 pm


Can’t tell if serious….


June 12th, 2:28 pm

LOL at people cry over a 0.23 cent increase!!!

PainOfSarrow said:

June 12th, 2:52 pm

Jeff Rubenstein , that is unacceptable… NAHHH im just messing HaHaa. i wasnt serious at all on any of my post. just was mocking others. no need to be sorry, 25 cents is very good.

FORMIK said:

June 12th, 2:55 pm

Could you update the LiveArea screen to show the amount of trophies and stars collected? It would be similar to the screen for MotorStorm RC.

The new costumes are cool. I want to unlock the other two for each!

Budapesti said:

June 12th, 3:50 pm

Escape Plan dlc for 25c???

Sony, you already sent me a LBP Vita beta code, gave me a pass to the press conference and E3 and (finally) released Gravity Rush this month.
I think I love you. :)

FeloniousMax said:

June 12th, 4:15 pm

Mine, mine, mine….oh yes, it will be mine.

For a qwahtah no less. Word!

FeloniousMax said:

June 12th, 4:15 pm

Oh, sup krae? How’s the place?

krae_man said:

June 12th, 4:25 pm

That’s a 1250% price increase Jeff. Inflation on PSN must be killer. :p

@FeloniousMax Sup. I’ve given up on that place for the most part too. 1/2 the time I get “This page no longer exists” errors.

krae_man said:

June 12th, 4:36 pm

1gb patch?

Come on Sony. You’re smarter then this. You should no better then to be still doing these “patches” that are really downloading the entire game again along with the new content.

People have download caps and don’t need to be wasting what little bandwidth they have redownloading stuff they have already downloaded.

Are you going to make us redownload 15gb’s too when you patch retail games on PSN?
