It has begun... Today we start the build up to Jailbreak 0.4, and to kick things off we bring you four new shots of one of the new 0.4 maps... Plague.

Plague is set in an Elizabethan period town somewhere in England, recently struck by The Black Plague. The map includes a theatre, an old church, a castle and an asylum, with many enterable buildings, and plenty of scares to keep you on your toes... trust us, escaping from the asylum is as scary as it is difficult!

Plague... Plague...
Plague at the Theatre... Plague... in the high street

Visit our website (www.jailbreaksource.com) to find out more about the features of Jailbreak 0.4 (point scoring system overhaul), join the beta-testing team, or download Jailbreak 0.3.1!

Stick around, as we'll be releasing loads more media over the coming weeks!

The textures are a little plain, but I like the mood!

Good! That's what we're aiming for... to make each map have a completely unique theme and feel!

Thats very very nice, you don't see a lot of maps lately that are so different from anything Ive seen on source.
Some textures are a little blurry but its great to see some non-hl2 textures and props. Good stuff guys!

@ Betelgeuze, We are going out of our way to create maps that don't particularly fall into a niche or a solid theme, (especially ones that have been seen on Source before) instead we are just trying to create a bunch of cool (almost random) environments that will be fun, visually impressive (well at least i think) and have some great gameplay too, Kind of like Unreal.

@ AgeNt_ , Yeah unfortunately there just aren't enough servers at the moment, with more popular mods coming and going our servers disappeared after a while. Keep checking back though as the servers tend to fill up quickly and its an absolute blast with 8+ people!!

We have a lot more to show in the coming weeks/months so stay tuned because we have some great stuff on the way!!

Indeed we do... we've completely overhauled 0.3.1 almost from scratch with loads of new features and redeveloped old ones, so over the next few weeks we'll be releasing loads of media.

It's a shame about the servers not running 0.3.1 anymore, but then we just have to hope 0.4 has more of an impact!

This will be so awesome, I love Jailbreak 0.3.1, it's awesome with 16 players.
And with these new upcoming maps, overhauled features. This is going to be even better! :D

Gotta say I agree that this mod has huge potential, I've only played 0.3.1 and enjoyed it so much when the server was full that I've started to spend some of my spare time helping out in any way that I can :)

Nice! Good job for breaking away from the HL2 scheme. It's a real breath of fresh air to see original content.
