Kalypso has whacked a North American release date on PC classic remake Jagged Alliance: Back in Action.

Originally announced as a prettified remake of Jagged Alliance 2, Back in Action seems to have evolved into something else in the meantime.

Gamespot reports the game features something called a “plan & go” mode, which introduces real-time gameplay elements.

The original Jagged Alliance titles were resolutely turn-based isometric tactics games in the X-COM vein.

The game sees players journeying to Arulco, a country in the grips of an unpleasant dictator, there to recruit a number of mercenaries and rebel.

The PX exclusive is due on OCtober 18; no word yet on European dating.
