Secret Features confirmed for Prison Architect
Prison Architect Launches Version 1 on October 6th with new features!
Introversion are proud to announce that the full version of Prison Architect will be released on October 6th with a brand new story and the all new Escape mode.
Prison Architect opens with the story of Edward, a man facing the electric chair for committing a crime of passion. Introversion have extended this with 4 additional chapters focusing on different characters and varying aspects of prison life. From Mafia Dons to power-crazed senators, Prison Architect has them all! To bring these characters to life, Introversion teamed up with award winning professional writer Chris Hastings, producing an enthralling tale of corruption and human misery set against the background of the modern prison industrial complex.
Escape mode sees the traditional PA gameplay turned on it’s head. Take control of an individual prisoner, load any of the tens of thousands of prisons uploaded to the Steam Workshop and get on with the important business of escaping. Earn experience points by shanking a guard, form up a posse of rough-necks and head to the armoury to shoot your way out or nick some tools from the workshop and start digging a tunnel hidden behind a picture of Raquel Welch.
The game’s open-ended sandbox has drawn in over 1.25m players since it was released into early access in September 2012 and we hope that the addition of these new, more linear styles of gameplay will delight the existing audience and bring a whole new tranche of players into the Prison Architect world. Oh and we mean world, as the full release has been localised into all 25 languages used by the steam client ….
Want an extended tour of the new facilities? Mark and Chris give a run-through of the brand new content in this video.
After shifting millions of copies during its three year sentence in Early Access, the gaming phenomenon will be released into the world as a more fully featured and better grounded individual.
In Prison Architect, players build and manage their own maximum security prison, built to hold the most hardened of criminals. Since the launch of the alpha, Prison Architect has gone from strength to strength, seeing high praise from all manner of gaming press and eventually going on to gain a player base in the millions. Prison Architect is a gripping new take on the well-worn simulation genre, having enraptured gamers worldwide with a unique premise and engrossing narrative.
