Sitting at more than 1.5 million copies sold on PC since release last October, Prison Architect from developer Introversion Software is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox One in spring 2016 for $29.99, Double Eleven announced today.
With the console editions of Prison Architect, Double Eleven has tailored the game to each platform’s controller style, while also adding the Prison Warden Mode and World of Wardens:
Unique to the coming Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360 editions of Prison Architect is the Prison Warden Mode, which allows players to jump in and take control of one of several pre-built prisons right away to get into the action faster. Also new to the console editions is the World of Wardens, a feature that grants you the ability to share your prisons online and try your hand at governing prisons that others have uploaded. Additionally, Double Eleven have put their own touch on each of these editions, creating a unique Prison Architect experience for each platform.
There’s also a fully-fledged story mode and sandbox mode with new in-game community features that allow you to build, maintain, and share your maximum security prisons with the touch of a button.
In Prison Architect, you build and manage your own maximum security prison built to hold the most hardened of criminals, all while dealing with riots, demolition, construction, and infernos. Make it through and the Mayor will give you a brand new prison development where you can build the prison of your dreams.
Introversion Managing Director Mark Morris 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 a 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.
While a lot of new content will be included with Prison Architect on PS4, Double Eleven noted that “more recent features in the PC version may not be included in the console version, at this time.” They added, “I can confirm there will of course be a full Trophy list, including a Platinum.”
If you’re wondering about a PlayStation Vita version, Double Eleven said, “While everyone at Double Eleven has mad love for Vita, we are only creating Prison Architect for PS4.”
