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!

A first look at Jailbreak: Source 0.6 on the Orange Box engine, new weapons, characters, maps, gamemodes and effects galore!

Posted by Wills on Jun 18th, 2009

We've been rather quiet for the last three months, in a form of solitary confinement one might say... But for a damn good reason! After having to abandon the development of Jailbreak: Source 0.5 on the Episode 1 Engine, we forged full steam ahead with re-creating everything for the Orange Box Engine. In the last few months we've also found time to add new weapons, player models, maps, gamemodes, and add all the goodies that the Orange Box brings! Check out the results below!

Thank you to every one of our fans for being so patient over the last few months as we've gradually rebuilt Jailbreak from scratch after the crash-tastrophe that occured just TWO DAYS before we planned to release Jailbreak 0.5. Now you'll just have to hang on a little bit longer whilst we finish polishing up and implementing the final features!

Sick work guys, looks amazing. Because I'm a graphic freak, I tend to notice great work when I see it, and from what I can see here, this is absolutely brilliant!

Great work. I remember getting this mod when it first came out and playing it over LANs since there were not too many servers that were played on. Since then you've come a long ways. Everything looks great keep up the great work.

Will jb_plague be in Jailbreak! Source 0.6? It was orgasmic escaping that prison. Also, I hope the rebels get something as terrifying as the combines got.
