Paradox has revealed a great quality of life update for prison management sim Prison Architect, which is apparently known as the Free for Life update, which is now available on Xbox and PC.
According to Paradox, free for life is primarily focused on implementing the Prison Architect community''s most requested features, thus "players may spend more time managing their compound rather than scrolling menus."
A broad set of improvements has been made to the scheme, including a higher scheduler and prison log, allowing players to more easily monitor inmates'' activities, as well as "uncover misconducts ahead of time and keep track of who gets reformed, or reoffended."
Additionally, it''s now possible to save any established prisons, policies, and quick builds in order to make them easier to reuse in the near future, and there are improved building and planning tools - including new room dimension tooltips while building, as well as new fence and wall options.
The additions to the Free for Life update include a fresh guard rank system, which sees new guards rise from unranked to Officer or Specialist Officer over time, with each new rank providing additional rewards, and a new age system.
Inmates will be categorized as either Young, Senior, or Elderly, with inmates'' appearance and functionality changes as a result of the time, with older inmates having different needs comparativement to younger ones.
The free for Life update for Prison Architect is now available on Xbox and PC, with a PlayStation release believed to be coming "soon."
