Prison Architect: Console Edition Gets Its Own Escape Mode With Exclusive Content in 2018


TEESSIDE, UK – NOVEMBER 27, 2017 – Publisher Double Eleven, in partnership with developer Introversion Software, have today announced Prison Architect’s Escape Mode, coming as a brand-new DLC for Xbox One and PS4. The Escape Mode DLC follows the earlier All Day and a Night and Psych Ward expansions.

The award-winning game’s upcoming Escape Mode content will be available to purchase in 2018, with more details to follow in the new year.

The Double Eleven version of the Escape Mode DLC will be based on the well-loved mode for the PC version of the game from Introversion, where players can take on the role of an inmate and attempt to escape the prisons built by themselves and others. The DLC will expand on those mechanics for the Prison Architect console community, as well as adding new content.

Players can keep up to date with Escape Mode progress by following Double Eleven on Twitter (@DoubleElevenLimited). Those already signed up to Double Eleven’s DoubleID program will be the first to know, so make sure to sign up if you don’t want to miss the news.

About Prison Architect

Prison Architect: Console Edition was launched in June 2016 to positive reviews from independent publisher Double Eleven. Based on the award-winning and multi-million selling PC version from Introversion Software, Prison Architect lets players build and manage their own maximum-security prison built to hold the most hardened of criminals. The console editions include a fully-fledged story mode that explores the gruesome and often convoluted matters of legal grey areas in the prison system, and a wildly in-depth sandbox mode featuring new in-game community features. These new features from developer and publisher Double Eleven allow players to build, maintain and share their maximum security prisons with the touch of a button on either console.
