We just announced Island Bound, the new Prison Architect expansion that will be released on June 11, 2020, on PC and Consoles. You can check out the announcement trailer here.

This expansion will allow you to create Island Compounds with no access road. You will have to bring your logistics game to a whole new level with these prisons, as you need to use a variety of new tools to make sure they run as intended. From ferries to helicopters, you will be able to deliver supplies directly to docking areas, and to maximize efficiency by linking them to specific deliveries – but be careful, as this also means more access points to sneak in contraband into your prison!

Luckily, you will also have new security objects that will allow you to inspect deliveries and prisoners as they enter the prison, or at key security checkpoints. You will also have access to additional emergency services when things get out of hand. Air Firefighters, Elite Ops Teams, Air Paramedic – we made sure you have all the support you need when things take an unexpected turn.

Finally, you will have access to new tiles and objects to customize your island!

We know it has been a long wait since we teased this expansion at PDXCON 2019 – we are really excited to finally show you what we have been working on over the last few months!

If you want to find out more about the expansion over the next few weeks, remember to follow us on social media (Facebook | Twitter) and check our weekly streams on Tuesday at 15:00 CEST (6:00 AM PDT) – we may show the new content over the next few weeks!

Island Bound’s Key Features:

Sea and Air:
Upgrade your prison’s logistics with a variety of ferry and helicopter transport options that deliver supplies and inmates directly to docking areas around your compound. But be aware, there are now more access points to sneak contraband into the prison.

Chain Link Up: Maximize your prison’s efficiency by linking docks, helipads, and roads to specific deliveries. You can even toggle what services are available to each delivery point within your compound.

Supermax Security: New security objects make it easier to search deliveries and prisoners as they enter the prison, or at key security checkpoints. Additional emergency services can be called when things get out of hand, including Air Firefighters, Elite Ops Teams, and Air Paramedics.

Island Life: Customize your Island or Connected Island Plot with over fifteen nautical tiles and objects. Shape the land around your compound with moats, rivers, and lakes for security, or for style -- no access roads needed!

The Rock: Manage the world’s most famous prison with two premade maps: Alcatraz Prison and Alcatraz Island.

Sweet! I was wondering when we'd be able to have an island prison.

The chain link up I'm assuming will be available for all other prisons as well?

Will you adress all the game breaking bugs in the games current state before you release this? Or are everyone working on this DLC and not fixing bugs making the game playable again? I doubt you will have many sales if the majority of the bugs are not fixed.

What does 11th of June mean for console versions, aside from the Island Bound? Both the Bucket and Cleared for Transfer updates aren't mentioned but can we expect these additions on that date as well? Any info on that would be great with the release less than a week away. Looking forward to new content.
