Prison Architect‘s Escape Mode DLC, has finally made its way to the PS4. Normally in this prison CEO simulator game, you build and manage a prison. In Escape Mode, you take on the role of an inmate trying to escape your own prison. Rather than make this a direct port of the PC version’s add-on, the team wanted to give console players an improved experience.
Here’s a trailer for Prison Architect’s Escape Mode.
Tom Pedalino, Game Designer at Prison Architect developer Double Eleven, detailed what fans can expect from Escape Mode on the PlayStation Blog. He stated:
After a lot of thumb-twiddling, we realized that to really encapsulate the feeling of a prison escape, you need to tap into the inmate’s dual life; blend in like a regular prisoner going about their daily routine, while slowly and meticulously plotting their escape.
Players can use their own Prison Architect maps or download prisons across the globe with World of Wardens. While Pedalino didn’t state the details he promised systems were put in play behind the scenes “to make sure that even if someone uploaded a really terrible map, it would still be fun to play.”
Prison Architect‘s Escape Mode DLC is available now on the PlayStation Store for $8.99. (The base game is $24.99.) It even adds six more endings, thirteen extra trophies, and twenty-seven new Snapshots.
