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!
Jailbreak's got perks! Stealth, regeneration, awareness, damage reduction! All sorts of fun ways to create a custom class.

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!
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!
