With Prison Architect: Perfect Storm Paradox Interactive and Double Eleven today release a new expansion for the popular prison management sim. In Perfect Storm Players must survive natural disasters such as severe thunderstorms while still maintaining a high standard of living for their inmates. Prison Architect: Perfect Storm is now available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch for EUR 9.99 (RRP).
Disasters of any kind could occur at any moment, causing increasing unrest among prison inmates. Prison management can train staff, apply for grants, and continue to secure the site to better manage the prison’s impact. Players are encouraged to create a clean and safe environment by preparing for disasters. This, in turn, rewards those directors who make prison inmates feel comfortable. In order to prevent disasters and overcome unexpected challenges, problems must be solved creatively.
“The disasters in Perfect Storm challenge players to solve problems in creative ways, often requiring them to think ahead when building their terrain. We’ve worked hard to very respectfully depict disasters as fun challenges that players can complete by completing the familiar one Prison Architect-Use gameplay styles,” explains Gaz Wright, Game Director of Prison Architect at Double Eleven. “Like our previous expansions, Disasters are inspired by popular prison fiction from TV and movies. It’s great when players start thinking critically about problems and relating how they might be solved in the real world.”
Prison Architect: Perfect Storm Key-Features:
- turmoil before the storm – Natural disasters such as frost, heat waves and lightning storms, but also rat infestations can cause structural damage, lower prison ratings and create chaos in the prison.
- Whatever happens – Pest control, plumbers, handymen and road maintenance are available for emergency relief during disasters. Electrician, cold protection, fire safety, first aid training, and pest control training enable employees to mitigate damage and continue to ensure smooth operations.
- subsidies help – Grants for disaster relief, heat waves, emergency protocols, subsidence, staff training and utility upgrade grants fund much-needed preparedness to weather disasters.
- see the disaster coming – Weather forecasting devices allow players to be aware of upcoming natural disasters at all times and prepare themselves.
Alongside the release of the expansion Perfect Storm all players will also receive a free update called The Tower. This update brings a variety of improvements to Prison Architect, including more foliage, soil types, search dogs and much more. The Tower also introduces a policy for non-lethal snipers: snipers can now use rubber bullets that knock out inmates but don’t kill them. More information about The Tower-Update is available in the patch notes.
