Prison Architect is making its way from Steam onto consoles, and this week, you can now get your hands dirty on the Xbox One, with the game now available via the Game Preview program. Ever dreamed of running your own prison? Now’s your chance!
“In Prison Architect you will see the impact of your grand design on the lives of your inmates; be it a utopic center for rehabilitation, a brutal Super Max Prison or anything in between. Even when all of your prisoners’ needs are met, remember one thing – it’s still a prison and no one really wants to be there. Start your journey into the world of Prison Architect by playing through the Prison Stories (campaign). You’ll quickly learn how to cope with blazing infernos, hostage situations and prison wide riots – if you make it through all that unscathed, the Mayor will be ready to give you the reigns of a brand new prison development where you can build the prison of your dreams.”
You can try it for free first for one hour, and then if you enjoy it a lot, you can buy it. The clause is that the game might not reach full retail, but that outcome is highly unlikely. Once released to the public, it’s yours to own anyway, so you don’t need to invest again. Click here to go to the Xbox Store, or find it in your Xbox Game Store when you switch it on.
Acting as both architect and governor, you control every detail of your Prison – from building new cells and facilities to hiring staff and creating reform programs – all while dealing with informants, contraband smuggling, gang warfare, full scale riots and more! Once your prison is built, go online with World of Wardens to share your designs with the community. You can also browse and play other Architects’ prisons from around the world!
