Jagged Alliance: Rage! Announced

THQ Nordic announces Jagged Alliance: Rage!, a new installment in the turn-based tactics series coming to Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One this fall. This will be the first game published under their HandyGames label which they say "will act as an independent publisher, focussing on small and mid-sized projects or 3rd-party indie games." Word is: "In Jagged Alliance: Rage! you are constantly on the brink of breakdown. Badly equipped and outnumbered, it's up to the player to lead their seasoned mercenaries in tactical turn-based missions and to light the spark of a revolution." Here's a trailer showing off cinematics and gameplay, and the Jagged Alliance website is updated to support the new game. Here's the announcement:
Jagged Alliance is back – With a new take on turn-based tactics, adventure elements and the well-known quirky mercenaries! Set 20 years after the first Jagged Alliance, this spin-off lets you experience a road trip into a jungle hell to test your mind and body to the limits!
This time it’s just you and a few allies versus an entire island ruled by a drug overlord and his crazed army.

The Features:

  • 2 Player online co-op mode
  • Deep turn-based tactical gameplay mixed with adventure elements
  • Choose a variety of tactics ranging from stealth to brute force
  • Strong character personalities with own skills, desires and personal conflicts
  • Rage skills: Unique character abilities that get more powerful over the course of the battle
  • Powerful Commanders coordinate enemy troops on the battlefields
  • Face terrifying experimental drugs and use them to manipulate your enemies

Eh.

The graphical tone seems off, no one has done even a half-decent attempt to revitalize this franchise, and they killed off Igor for some reason.

I replayed JA2:Gold last year. Would probably do it again before playing some half-assed new version. I'll pay attention when it's released, as the X-COM remake killed it, but very low expectations.

And Igor? Really?!

With the way Bethesda is now, prepare to get hit with a lawsuit due to the fact your game has the word "Rage" in the title... lol.

XCOM was made by a great studio with a good budget. This game looks like utter garbage. And WTF is with this Rage bullshit. I hope I'm wrong.

They should just call it RAEG.

Well 'Jagged Alliance' has always been a stupid name so throwing 'RAGE!' onto the end of it seems fitting somehow. I don't mind the look of the game as displayed in the trailer - JA was never really about its graphics or art style anyway. It was all gameplay, interesting characters, and unique dark humor. Well, the originals anyway. The RTS remake was a decent game in its own right but didn't do nearly enough to earn its JA title. Nail the feel of Jagged Alliance, or call it something else entirely.

Bethseda should add a Merc skill line to ESO. That'd be cool.

Could have got Alanis on board and called it "Jagged Little Alliance."

Jagged Alliance is the one series where I simultaneously want someone to do the series right and finally put out a good followup to JA2, while at the same time wishing for the same people to just please let it die when they inevitably put out a terrible game that taints the JA name even further.

I've always thought that "Jagged Alliance" was a cool name for a game. It's evocative and mysterious. Combining it with the shouty "Rage!" shows the current marketing team doesn't really understand their audience.

Had the same thought on the matter. Rage? Really? Have they even played any of the originals?
