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.

Full Control Launches Steam Early Access and Rolls Out New Trailer for the next Installment of the Classic Turn Based Strategy Franchise

Posted by on


Jagged Alliance: Flashback has launched on Steam Early Access. Besides being able to influence the development of the game at an early stage, the game includes an editor that gives users the opportunity to build their own campaigns, as well as distributing mods through Steam Workshop. Originally funded through a successful Kickstarter campaign in May 2013, where it received over $350,000 from backers Jagged Alliance: Flashback has been in development since June 2013 and is due for full commercial launch in late 2014.

“The launch of Jagged Alliance: Flashback on Steam Early Access is a significant milestone in our vision to bring back the beloved turn-based franchise to its roots”, said Thomas Lund, CEO of Full Control. "We're excited to launch the game on Steam Early Access and can't wait to see what the Jagged Alliance community will build with the Editor”.

The Early Access version will include a small island to conquer and explore, turn-based combat and a few dialogues and quests. The combat system makes use of diverse cover, true line of sight calculations and different stances to provide a deep tactical experience for the player. Additional features will be added to the game throughout the Early Access phase.

A unique mix of deep turn-based tactics, role-playing and squad management, Jagged Alliance: Flashback is set on the fictional Caribbean Island of San Hermanos in the late 1980’s. An elected president - “The Prince”, uses his military forces to halt a rebellious group attempting to overthrow his regime. Powerless against his organised military forces, the leader of the rebellion is arrested and the insurgents quickly dissolve. Arriving on San Hermanos, the players first mission is to help the rebel leader escape from prison, before things take a turn for the worse.

We made a Kickass trailer to go with the Early Access Release, so enjoy :)

A pitty it's so deeply knitted into Steam. I'd loved to have tried to out sooner or later. Drop Steam. Steam = lost customers.
