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!
We were blown away by the incredible response we recieved from ModDB readers two weeks back when we revealed that 0.5 would include Dinosaurs & Robots, so thank you all for the kind words and great feedback, we're taking everything into account! We promised more awesome shots at the time too, and today we deliver! Below you can see updated shots from Metropolis and Arroyo aswell as four shots from another new map, Kimiko. We're also revealing the new Automatic Shotgun and the rather hardcore Automated Turrets.
New Weapon Selection system:
One of the most frequent complaints about 0.4, was the standard weapon selection system, which enabled weapon hogging and didn't promote teamwork. So for 0.5, we've thrown it out completely, and replaced it with a slots system. Now you get six slots for each weapon type, so if you have a Rifle and want to swap it for a Shotgun, you just stand nearby and press X! The system has worked great in beta testing and is extremely fast, it also makes for a much more tactical and interesting game, as more players end up with a better variety of weapons.
The next release of Jailbreak is weeks from being finished, and we'll be releasing plenty more shots and a few trailers in the next month to give you a taster of what we've done. In the mean time, get on over to our website at www.jailbreaksource.com and be sure to add yourself to our Mod Watch if you haven't already! You can download the current release of Jailbreak: Source from ModDB, and the best way to get a good game is to join the Let's Play Jailbreak Steam Group!More news will be on it's way in the coming weeks!
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Jailbreak!. We love games like Half-Life 2 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
