bitComposer Games and gamigo announce Jagged Alliance Online
, a browser-based MMORPG continuation of the tactical role-playing series. The game is being developed by Cliffhanger Productions for release next year, and presumably beta testing will commence soon, as they are offering beta signups on the Jagged Alliance Website
as well as to attendees of Gamescom. There is also a new Facebook Page
for the game, and here's a bit from the announcement:
Jagged Alliance Online will be built around the familiar Jagged Alliance games mechanics, which are a mixture of turn-based battles and real-time action. The player takes control of a group of soldiers, commanding them from an isometric perspective to complete tasks in order to earn cash as well as renown. If a player wants to stay on top, mercenaries will need to be trained and equipped with better weapons. If that's not quite enough, then mercenaries can be borrowed from friends or alliances can be formed with other players.
