Perks, buffs, enhancements, augmentations. Whatever you want to call them, they're in Jailbreak. How do you earn them? By playing the game properly! Good in defense? You get bonus points for defending your jail. More of a front line player? No problem, get points for releasing your team. Good at dying? Then escape and earn points for that! In fact, there's so many ways to earn points, you can't fail at Jailbreak... unless you don't play properly!
The different perks you can earn are seperated into three different levels, and you can only purchase one per level. Each perk has it's opposite, so if you find the enemy team have a propensity toward Stealth, then choose Awareness to sniff out their positions!
Level 1 Perks - Passive:
Level 2 Perks - Passive:
Healer: A passive healing system, healing all team mates within a radius.
Level 3 Perks - Active:
Health Regeneration: An active perk, allowing you to regenerate health.
Stealth: An active perk enabling stealth mode for a short period.
Speed: Like rocket boots, you just can't stop running till this runs out!
Dynamic Point Scoring:
And even if you're rubbish, points are dynamically earnt! So, kill a player with more points than you, and you get bonus points based on the difference! Join the game late? You catch up real fast! Instant balance is restored.
We've started testing the RC this week, so it really wont be long at all now until release, so keep your eyes out for the trailer coming very soon!
