Jagged Alliance: Flashback is our vision of returning a once critically acclaimed franchise back to its roots, it's not a reboot, it's a reset! Our main goal is to bring back the tactical turn-based action that the original Jagged Alliance games are known for - the game was a thinking man's game, a thinking man with lots of guns! The games were unique in their blend of tactical turn-based action, controlling and maintaining squads of mercenaries, off and on the battlefield. As a player the decisions you made had a direct impact on how you played the game. Additionally, over-the-top personalities, memorable characters and role-playing elements made the games difficult to put away once you were hooked.
We have survived the craziness that is Gamescom and are now ready to release the next big update for JAF, which comes with an all new user interface and additional features to the tactical layer of the game:
Quick Overview of Features:
You can find the full changelog here: Changelog Tactical Overload Update
It’s been very busy this last month so we haven’t manage to squeeze in a trailer for the next update. However, we still wanted to show off a few of the new features in this update and share a bit of information about their design, so we created a new dev diary:
Release Date and Launch Price:
For those who don’t know, we told journalists at Gamescom that we would be launching the final version of JAF in Mid/End October and that the launch price would be €29.99.We’ve now settled on a release date, which is the 21st of October for both the digital version and the retail version.We originally said we would launch in November 2014, but as we would be competing with a lot of big titles at that time, we have decided for this slot instead.
Strategic Layer UI Sneak Peek
During Gamescom we also shared a bit of information with journalists about what we have planned for the future and a new and improved Strategic UI is definitely part of that. We gave the journalists a sneak peek, so we only found it fair that you get it as well, so:
We took out some of the elements from the Strategic Layer for Gamescom as we didn’t want it to have too much information. This is still a work-in-progress image, so just an indication of where we’re heading.
Steam Trading Cards
With this update we’re also adding Steam Trading Cards to the game, so start collecting to unlock some nice profile backgrounds and icons :)
We're still on Early Access and you can support the development of the game already here:
