In a press release sent to VG247 today, Full Control confirmed that details on how to access the Jagged Alliance: Flashback closed alpha can be found on the game’s official site.

“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.
