Going Green is the latest available DLC for Double Eleven and Paradox Interactive‘s wildly popular prison sim, Prison Architect.
The expansion brings in a ton of new gameplay features, revolving around creating a self-sustainable, eco-friendly prison. The team seems especially keen to bring new players into the fold, as the base Prison Architect game is currently on sale on Steam and available for PC on Xbox Game Pass. You can check out the release trailer and a list of the new features below!
Prison Architect: Going Green key features
- Fruits of Labor: Farming introduces a new type of Prison Labor, allowing prisons to grow potatoes, wheat, apples, and more. Produce can be exported or used as ingredients for inmate meals.
- Room to Grow: Three outdoor rooms facilitate farming: Fruit Orchard, Farm Field and Vegetable Allotment. But that’s not all, players can recruit staff Farm Workers, build a Pantry to store produce, and construct a Shed to house farming-related items.
- Best Buds: Inmates who enjoy nature’s beauty can grow flowers and other plants recreationally. Gardening affects inmates and gives them a positive recreation activity.
- Trouble is Brewing: With new crops comes new contraband. Prisoners can now secretly grow herbs in the fields and swipe kitchen ingredients to brew Booze. Fields can also become Gang Turf, so keep your guards on alert!
- A Greener New Deal: Prisons get an eco-friendly makeover with Solar, Wind, and Solar/Wind Hybrid power sources. Excess power created by these sustainable methods can be sold back to the grid using the Power Export Meter.
If you want to try before you buy, Prison Architect will be free to play this weekend on Steam, from January 29th through to the 31st. Happy farming!
