Jagged Alliance: Flashback developer Full Control has opened up its free-to-play strategy titles to Kickstarter backers by way of a closed alpha phase. The game will hit Steam early access for non-backers in Q2, with a full release expected late 2014.
“We are happy to announce that Jagged Alliance: Flashback is finally in Alpha, with Steam Early Access close on its heels”, said Thomas Lund, CEO of Full Control. “Fans of the franchise will be excited about the return of the beloved turn-based action of the original game, and we can’t wait to get feedback from our Kickstarter backers and the rest of the community when Early Access on Steam begins. So go ahead, talk to us! We want to make this game as great possible for the fans of the franchise, which is also why we have chosen to focus heavily on the modability of the game.”
The turn-based strategy title brings together zone control and combat with a 1980s veneer. it’s set on the Caribbean island of San Hermanos, which is governed by ruthless dictator, ‘The Prince,’ and it’s up to players to help the rebellion along. It’s a reboot-of-sorts of the series, which began with 1994 classic Jagged Alliance.
We’ll have more as it comes.
