After a stunning release on PC late last year, Prison Architect will be making its way to console in the Spring.
With a host of exclusive features and a control scheme which has been tailored to work well on each platform, the 1.5 million copies that have already been sold on PC looks set to increase massively with the addition of console sales. Prison Architect will allow you to build and manage your own high security prison, taking part in a full on story mode and messing around with the sandbox options on offer. It’ll be up to you to maintain the prison to the best of your ability!
With a new Prison Warden Mode arriving as a unique Xbox addition, you’ll be able to jump in and take control of one of several pre‐built prisons right away, helping you get into the action just that bit faster. Also new to the console editions is the World of Wardens, granting you the ability to share your prisons online and try your hand at governing prisons that others have uploaded.
Mark Morris, managing director of Introversion said, “Myself, Chris Delay and the rest of the team have spent more than five years with the community making Prison Architect what it is today and we’re grateful for all the support we’ve had along the way. The decision to bring the game to new platforms and finding a partner was no easy one. Enter Double Eleven, who have demonstrated a wonderful track record in taking a known game and really making it their own. Double Eleven approached us with their ideas for the game both as a publisher and developer and we were really excited about where they wanted to take it.”
“Prison Architect stands as a truly unique, thought provoking look into how one would build and operate their own Prison playing out the consequences of your decisions. We were delighted that Introversion chose us to develop and publish the console editions of Prison Architect, as one of the most respected developers in the world that meant so much to all of us as we know this is their baby. We only take on games that we enjoy and that we know we can do a stellar job of creating; both Introversion and future players deserve no less,” said Mark South, chief operating officer of Double Eleven.
Get ready for Spring! It looks to be a good un!
