It’s been a little while since we’ve been able to post one of these: Hurrah, another free Prison Architect console update! The update lands on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 from the 21st of November, with Switch following later this year.

The free update brings 30 new items, 6 new wall types and 2 new floor tiles, as well as a range of gameplay tweaks to both the base game and the popular Escape Mode DLC.  The items include a range of new lights, trees and plants, furniture and decorative objects for your rooms and interactable items such as an arcade machine.
