Despite saying they were done with Prison Architect quite a few times now, the developers have returned once more with a major update. This time around they have added the much-requested multiplayer feature, meaning that you can now build and manage a prison with up to four players at the same time! The system is still in its early days so you won't be able to play maps that require mods or mess around with the Escape or Warded game modes, but thankfully all major features are currently working in multiplayer.

As always, if you're wondering what all of this looks like in-game, as well as what the developers are planning for the future, you should check out the most recent update video. It's a bit lengthy, but I'd say it's still well worth watching. Have a peek:

There's really not much else to say about the multiplayer update, so allow me to finish this off by mentioning that Prison Architect is currently on a 75% discount on Steam. So if you've never given it a try, or if you're just looking to get a couple of friends stuck in prison with you, this would be a pretty good time to do so.

Personally, I'd highly recommend it, if for no other reason than the amount of support it continues to receive even three years after launch. That said, Prison Architect is a fairly niche game, so make sure to do a little bit of research about it before diving in.

Have fun!
