prison architect going green dlc

Designing, building and governing a fully-functioning prison isn’t easy, as we found out back in 2016 when Prison Architect launched. Since then, various expansions and add-ons have brought further enjoyment to those who got to grips with the prison management sim. Now though, a totally self-sustainable compound is on the cards as the Prison Architect: Going Green DLC looks to flourish on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. 

Prison Architect: Going Green provides a completely fresh way to build a prison; one which expands the existing mechanics and introduces a farming aspect. Through the environmentally-friendly offerings, you can farm the land, construct green energy sources, and customize your compound using sustainable materials. Unfortunately it does mean that the shifty inmates will likely seize the opportunity to produce thematic contraband, thus increasing the challenge to keeping a prison under control.

Here’s a full run-down of what to expect from the Going Green DLC:

  • Fruits of Labor: Farming introduces a new type of Prison Labor, allowing prisons to grow potatoes, wheat, apples, and more. Produce can be exported or used as ingredients for inmate meals.
  • Room to Grow: Three outdoor rooms facilitate farming: Fruit Orchard, Farm Field and Vegetable Allotment. But that’s not all, players can recruit staff Farm Workers, build a Pantry to store produce, and construct a Shed to house farming-related items.
  • Best Buds: Inmates who enjoy nature’s beauty can grow flowers and other plants recreationally. Gardening affects inmates and gives them a positive recreation activity.
  • Trouble is Brewing: With new crops comes new contraband. Prisoners can now secretly grow herbs in the fields and swipe kitchen ingredients to brew Booze. Fields can also become Gang Turf, so keep your guards on alert!
  • A Greener New Deal: Prisons get an eco-friendly makeover with Solar, Wind, and Solar/Wind Hybrid power sources. Excess power created by these sustainable methods can be sold back to the grid using the Power Export Meter.

To own the Prison Architect: Going Green DLC, we’d suggest a visit to the Xbox Store, which requests a payment of £8.39 before you can get your hands on these self-sustainable plans. You can also find it on the respective digital stores for the other aforementioned platforms. Obviously, you’ll need to possess the base game as well to be able to delve into the delightfully green content.

If you don’t wish to spend any cash just yet, The Glasshouse content launches alongside this and has arrived as a free update. The Glasshouse introduces additional objects, quickrooms, community improvements and two new top-notch employees – K9 units Shepherd and Bowtie Bandit. It allows wardens to create a slightly more sustainable prison with Recycling Systems and objects like recycling bins or solar lights.
