Jailbreak is simple: Two teams, two jails. When you kill a member of the opposite team, they respawn, locked up inside your jail. Lose, and you get executed!

Your objective is to imprison every member of the enemy team. The twist is, you can break out members of your own team, by fighting your way to the enemy jail and opening the doors! Likewise, your team mates can also escape through dangerous puzzles and routes!

It's been a crazy few weeks in Jailbreak-land. We've had a Karaoke night, a Poetry night a Kiss Chase night, a Romeo and Juliet Reenactment night (hats off to the fine lady organizer of those, PLGG who's done a sterling job as the events coordinator and who also edited the videos!) and most recently, Swashbuckling Saturday! (which PLGG didn't organize, she has to have a week off sometimes!) Each event has been hilarious and immense fun, with queues to join the primary server lasting all night.

Scroll down past the videos for information about the upcoming Talent Event and the latest competition and prize!

Brilliant fun, made by some of the hardest working mod developers in the business.

The maps are amazing, characters and weapons polished and the gameplay is great with a full server.

Highly recommended.
