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!

You asked for it! We listened! Today we're releasing the shortly awaited patch for Jailbreak: Source 0.4, with many new fixes, features and updates... the majority of which have been requested, inspired and driven by our community!

The main change to gameplay is the new dynamic point scoring system, meaning that if you kill someone with 100 points, you get 10 points etc! Now go get hunting those high scoring players... they're worth more now! You'll also be pleased to hear that the Grenade Exploit is fixed!

Gangs and Clans:

We've just kicked off a Gang/Clan Leaderboard! Currently there are six gangs participating, and one of our community members (nyght) is running a server especially for the matches. If you fancy joining one of the gangs, or even starting your own, then get on over to our Gangland forums and sign up! Playing Jailbreak in a gang is one of the best ways to experience the game, plus you get to meet new friends!

Make sure to keep an eye out for the Official Map Pack coming out early next month, featuring over 15 new maps! Finally, be sure to add yourself to our Mod Watch if you haven't already!

Wooo dynamic scoring. Though I am still going to suck. But I guess that is life.

lol! Yeah the dynamic scoring system really helps! It simply means that players who join the server late, can rack up the points really quickly, and likewise, less skilled players who get lucky, can grab themselves some good perks pretty fast! In testing it really helped to balance the game when one team starts to dominate.

Just downloaded the mod yesterday, had a blast playing it last night. The team have done a great job with everything, I especially like the variety in the maps and the custom executions are just awesome. I couldn't stop laughing the first time I saw the enemy team blasted into space. Great stuff!
