'Prison Tycoon: Under New Management' Maximum Security DLC Coming Later This Month

by Rainier on March 17, 2022 @ 10:34 a.m. PDT

Prison Tycoon: Under New Management offers a new take on the franchise's core gameplay, wherein players are now challenged to rehabilitate inmates in order to help them reintegrate with society upon their release.

The game will feature all the classic tycoon-style gameplay that involves building, maintaining, and upgrading facilities, along with managing staff and ensuring the prison stays supplied. The best-selling series will see the introduction of a new type of gameplay challenge, as players will strive to rehabilitate inmates and reintroduce them as productive members of society upon their release. 

Prison Tycoon: Under New Management tasks players with creating and maintaining a successfully run prison — complete with security checkpoints, guard towers, prison cells, and inmate services.

In Prison Tycoon: Under New Management, would-be wardens will need to maintain a balance of services and security as they strive to run an efficient facility while keeping inmates on the path to reintegration. To grow their prison and improve their capabilities, players will need to secure funding from state agencies, manage the flow of resources and keep staff happy while providing proper care for their charges. 

Titled “Maximum Security,” this expansion extends your prison’s repertoire by adding new types of guards, new prisoners to select, and more. High risk equals high reward, and the Maximum Security DLC rewards wardens who take on challenging charges.

In the new Maximum Security DLC for Prison Tycoon: Under New Management, players are tasked with reforming a menacing new type of charge: the Maximum Security Prisoner. To cater to their new guests, wardens have many new tools at their disposal, from laser tracking cameras and high-security towers to user-defined patrol paths for new guard types and much more. Can you rise to the challenge and remain steadfast in your goal of rehabilitation? 

Maximum Security DLC Includes:

  • En Garde!: This DLC includes new K9 units and robot guards, helping the player increase guard efficiency and keep overhead down. And yes, you can pet the dog!
  • New Kid on the (Cell) Block: Maximum Security prisoners have a rough look, and they tend to have a complicated past that will require new therapy rooms. Aid in their rehabilitation by addressing their needs while keeping them secure from the general population.
  • New Inmates, New Therapies: New types of inmates come with new challenges to work through. Make use of new therapy types to keep your charges on the road to recovery.
  • Built to Last: The new max security buildings are specially designed for the most dangerous prisoners. Players can build max security cells, max security isolation cells, therapy rooms, and other standard rooms in this new building.
The Maximum Security DLC will be available on Steam and on March 29, 2022 for $9.99.

Key Features:

  • Five Distinct Environments: Select from tropical, tundra, taiga, swamp, or desert biomes, each with its own environmental challenges

  • Hire Experts: Evaluate and hire staff to serve 12 different roles in running and maintaining your prison
  • Secure and Protect: Maintain a secure facility using guards, cameras, watchtowers, and checkpoints
