There's nothing quite like the rush of running, falling, jumping and crawling your way toward the release switch whilst under fire from rockets, railguns and lasers... then jabbing that switch and releasing all your team mates! Then finally watching as they all come running out of the open doors and beat the other team to death with Laser Cleavers! There's never a dull moment in JB, you're either fighting to stay alive, fighting to release your team mates, or fighting to escape from jail!

Our new mapper IZaNaGI has at last revealed his creation to the world entitled... Arroyo. This new map for Jailbreak will be as large if not bigger than Woodneck and Madesco, and is another totally new style and direction for JB, as we move further away from the HL2 Universe!

Arroyo II Arroyo III
Arroyo I Arroyo V

The map itself is still a work-in-progress, with completion aimed at around two weeks away! So if you're one of our beta testers, or you want to be... get onto the forums and announce your intentions, and very soon you'll be able to play both Arroyo and DeepCore in the beta version of Jailbreak Version 0.4!

Visit the Jailbreak Source website to download Jailbreak 0.3.1!

Yes we will, again to move away from the HL2 style... so Metropolis will be revised to appear more "Neo-Tokyo" in appearance, whilst Abalos will be revised to look more like a London Underground station. Woodneck and Madesco won't change an awful lot, as I like the look and feel of these two, but there will certainly be some changes.

Nice map! Will you be changing the style of the previously released maps as well?

Well, right now, the plan is dependent on us finding a modeller, which has proven difficult so far! If we can find a modeller, then we're intending to create unique weapons for both sides and not go down the route of MP5, M4, AK47 etc.

We are planning on a kind of Mad Max/Punk theme for the Rebel side, so weapons would be very hand-made looking, strapped together with gaffer tape and wood etc, and quite personalised with spikes, skulls and what not. For the Combine side, we want to create some futuristic style weapons, with chargers, plasma parts, and various visual elements like that.

Arroyo... Fallout 2? Doesn't look like Fallout though.

I've got a feeling im going to be posting this everywhere until after 0.4 is released but 'An Arroyo is an American term for a deep gully cut by an intermittent stream but is usually dry.' Glad everyone here likes the look of the map.

Any similarities to Fallout 2 are purely coincidental, and do not represent the views and opinions of... hehe :) You get the picture! Fallout 2 rocks anyhow!

Those textures seem very familiar...Not in a bad way. I mean the mapper must be the one that made that Star Wars themed map for HL2...And that blue-ish CSS map. Good mapper if it is him.
