Kalypso Media and bitComposer Games have announced that Jagged Alliance: Back in Action will arrive in stores worldwide in February 2012 for PC. The game will have players commanding teams of mercenaries as they attempt to retake the island nation of Arulco from an evil dictator. Players will not only take control of combat teams on-the-ground, but will also manage finances, logistics and more.
Here’s some info on the game as given in the press release:
Back in Action takes players to the fictitious country of Arulco, where a ruthless dictator has seized power and only a small group of rebels stand to resist him. Tasked with freeing the island from the dictator’s iron grip, players will command rebel and mercenary forces while using tactical, diplomatic and economic tools to keep troops supplied and ready for the next flight, all while commanding them directly in nail-biting battles.
Back in Action’s innovative “plan & go” combat system combines real-time strategy (RTS) with turn-based elements to guarantee that the intricacies of tactical warfare are rendered in dynamic, exciting gameplay. This challenges would-be commanders to master not only strategy and tactical combat, but also to maximize their team’s capabilities through RPG-like character advancement.
