Jagged Alliance: Crossfire Announced

Kalypso Media and bitComposer Games announce Crossfire, a standalone expansion for Jagged Alliance: Back in Action that will revive the strategy revival this summer. Here are some screenshots, and here's word:

In Crossfire, players are transported to Khanpaa, a peaceful country suffering under the brutal attacks of mercenary troops. To save his country from these bloody massacres, Ambassador Behnam Atiqullahs has no other choice but to hire his own mercenary teams to get to the bottom of these inexplicable and bloodthirsty attacks and to put an end to Khanpaa’s agony.

Features of Jagged Alliance: Crossfire:

  • The first completely new story in the Jagged Alliance universe in almost a decade
  • Unique mix of tactics, RTS, RPG and economic simulation gameplay
  • Optional line of sight mode and fog-of-war
  • New location, new enemies, new weapons, new threats!
  • Ten new M.E.R.C. mercenaries, bringing the roster up to 50 mercs
  • 20 new achievements
  • 15-20 hours of additional gameplay

Looks great but damn... still not turn-based. So disappointing.

If you like turn-based tactical combat, check out GOG.com. They just added Silent Storm Gold to their catalog, and it's a fantastic game, and one of my personal favorites in the genre (up there with X-Com and Jagged Alliance 2).

As for Crossfire, I'm intrigued enough to try it. I may even buy Back in Action if it gets a good discount in the upcoming Summer Sale on Steam. ;-)

Thanks for the heads-up! I loved Silent Storm back in the day.

It's not that I think BiA can't be a good game because it's basically realtime (pause and go to be precise) instead of turn-based like the seminal original; I just can't help being disappointed that a supposed "remake" of JA2 would change something so fundamental to the game. A game that was nigh perfect the way it was I might add.

I'll end up buying this I'm sure, as it looks pretty cool, but I'll keep wishing for a remake that is more true to the original.
