Prison Architect gains a new warden with Double Eleven, free update incoming

Posted by , | Views: 3,109

After Paradox Interactive acquired the rights to Prison Architect from Introversion Software, they've now announced that Double Eleven will be handling future updates.

Double Eleven are a well-known developer and publisher of quite a number of titles, with them also previously been responsible for the console versions of Prison Architect so it seems like a pretty good fit as they already worked with the game.

As for the free update that's planned to release on Thursday this week, it will include:

  • 4 new floors
  • 4 new walls
  • increased foreman cap
  • guard response button
  • fixed scanners
  • more quick rooms
  • tunnel search button
  • full rotations for items

They also said a few other minor updates and fixes will be included, but this is just the beginning of "lots" of free updates and content. They're also interested in what paid content players want in future, so they will be taking on suggestions during their next livestream at 3PM UTC on Thursday which you can watch here.

Personally, I'm really glad to see it will continue on rather than get a sequel. There's tons of life left in Prison Architect and it is a very fun game. Going by SteamDB, looks like the update is being readied and Linux is still included.

You can find Prison Architect on Humble Store, GOG and Steam.

What I’d like is if they added a real campaign to the game.

Hope they keep updating people who bought direct from Introversion and don't use Steam.
