With the release of Psych Ward: Warden’s Edition, we are going to reorganize the bundling on our storefronts to provide a more intuitive experience for new players and streamline our offer on different stores.

With the release of Psych Ward: Warden’s Edition, the Aficionado Edition will become a separate DLC containing the game soundtrack and the Digital Art Book purchasable for a price of 1,99 $.

We will also introduce a new dynamic bundle on Steam called “Total Lockdown.” This bundle will contain Prison Architect, Psych Ward: Warden’s Edition, and the Aficionado DLC (the game Soundtrack, and the Art Book). Purchasing this bundle will allow you to get all the Prison Architect content available with a 10% discount, and the price will be further reduced if you already own the Standard or the Aficionado Edition of the game.

Ultimately, this is how the new structure will look like:

  • Prison Architect:

    • Base game. 29.99 USD / 24.99 EUR / 23.79 GBP
  • Aficionado DLC: 1.99 USD / 1.99 EUR / 1.69 GBP

    • Game Soundtrack

    • Art Book
  • Psych Ward: Warden’s Edition. 5.99 USD / 5.99 EUR / 4.79 GBP
Steam Only:

  • Total Lockdown Edition: 10% discount, dynamically adapting according to what edition of the game you have.

    • Base game.

    • Aficionado DLC.

    • Psych Ward: Warden’s Edition.
Finally, we have an update regarding the DRM free version on the Humble Bundle Store. Moving forward, it will no longer be possible for us to keep this version updated to the latest version of the game for technical reasons. Therefore, this version will no longer be available for purchase. All the players who already purchased Prison Architect on Humble Bundle will still be able to download the DRM-free version from that store, but it will no longer be supported.

We understand that it might be a little be confusing to understand the rationale of so many changes at once, as there are many moving parts that we need to align to be able to continue adding content to the game in a sustainable way. With this offering parity across stores, we are allowing ourselves to focus more on features and content development.

We look forward to next Thursday, and to sharing with you the Sneezer update - our biggest free update so far to the game - and see your reactions to Psych Ward: Warden’s Edition!
