Prison Architect is Adding an ‘Escape Mode’ in 2018

Up until now, prison management simulator Prison Architect has been all about creating secure prisons that prevent escapees. In a brand new DLC pack arriving next year, that’s all about to change.

The Escape Mode DLC will be landing on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game at some point in 2018. Instead of taking on the role of the omnipotent prison manager, the DLC will allow you to become one of the prisoners, intent on making a great escape.

There aren’t too many details about exactly how the DLC will play out just yet, but I’m imagining something to the effect of Team 17’s Escapists – but with perhaps less emphasis on survival mechanics.

The DLC — which will be a paid add-on — is expected to land around summertime next year and if you want more information, you can keep an eye on Double Eleven’s official blog, where updates will be added in the new year.

Until then, here’s a very teasery trailer:
