Prison Architect is making its way to home consoles after a successful release on the PC where it has to date sold over 1.5-million units. The prison-simulator game will have a variety of exclusive features and have been tailored to each platform’s unique controller style. Developed by Double Eleven in partnership with Introversion Software, the console version of Prison Architect will be available this spring for $29.99.
New to the console edition of the game are two features: Prison Warden Mode and World of Wardens. In Prison Warden Mode, players can jump right into the action and take control of one of several pre-built prisons right away. World of Wardens on the other hand, will allow players to share their prisons online as well as the opportunity to try their hand at governing other prisons that players have uploaded.
If you haven’t heard of Prison Architect, the game has players building and managing their own maximum security prison. The console version will also have a full-fledged story mode and sandbox mode, incorporating entirely new in-game community features that allow players to build, maintain and share their prisons with the push of a button.
“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,” said Mark Norris, managing director of Introversion. “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.”
