Railbreak: A New On-Rails Arcade Shooter Coming to Xbox Series X|S

If you are a fan of classic arcade games like The House of the Dead and Time Crisis, you might be interested in Railbreak, a new on-rails arcade shooter from Dead Drop Studios. Jailbreak is set to launch on Xbox Series X|S on December 22, 2023, and pre-orders started on November 17, 2023. The game is inspired by the nostalgic and simple-to-learn but tough-to-master gameplay of the arcade shooters from the 1990s, but with a modern twist.


Unreal Engine 5 Powers the Zombie Carnage

Jailbreak is the first game from Dead Drop Studios that uses Unreal Engine 5, the latest and most advanced game engine from Epic Games. The game features stunning graphics and effects, such as ray tracing, lumen, and volumetric lighting, that create a realistic and immersive experience. The game also takes advantage of the new engine’s capabilities to enhance the gameplay, such as the dismemberment physics that allows players to strategically minimize zombie attacks and the increased enemy count that makes the game more frenetic and challenging.

Co-op, Score Attack, and Onslaught Modes

Jailbreak offers three different game modes that can be played alone or with a friend in optional co-op support. The game also supports customizable controls, including optional support for Sinden Lightguns on PC platforms. The game modes are:

  • Story: A cheesy and fully voiced adventure that follows the stars of Dead Drop Studios’ upcoming Outbreak: Shades of Horror, Lydia and Hank, as they test a hot new arcade game that involves blasting bright pink zombies with heavy artillery.
  • Score Attack: A mode where players can practice individual levels and secure the best rank by achieving high scores and combos.
  • Onslaught: A mode where players face a never-ending horde of zombies and try to survive as long as possible.

Seven Scenarios and Seven Characters to Choose From

Jailbreak is jam-packed with content and replayability. The game has seven unique scenarios that take place in diverse environments, such as a carnival, a hospital, a subway, and a mansion. The game also has tons of zombies and enemy variations, such as clowns, nurses, soldiers, and bosses. The game also features seven playable characters, each with their load-outs and weapons, such as pistols, shotguns, machine guns, and grenades. The game also has a fully-featured leaderboard system that allows players to compare their scores and achievements with other players.

Jailbreak is a game that promises to deliver accessible and fun on-rail arcade action just in time for the holidays. The game is priced at USD 19.99 and is available for pre-order now on Xbox Series X|S. The game will also launch on PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on December 22, 2023.
