Jagged Alliance: Flashback Enters Alpha, Early Access In Q2
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Full Control recently announced that its Kickstarter funded Jagged Alliance: Flashback has entered closed alpha testing, and that the game will be available on Steam Early Access in the second quarter of this year. Flashback is a reboot of the classic Jagged Alliance turn-based tactical action series. Like its predecessors, the game will put players in control of a squad of mercenaries and give them the chance to manage their activities both on and off the field of battle.

“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."

Jagged Alliance: Flashback is now in Closed Alpha and can be accessed by eligible Kickstarter backers. Receiving over $350,000 in funding through crowd-sourcing platform Kickstarter, Jagged Alliance: Flashback has been in development since June 2013 and is due to launch in late 2014.

Additionally, Jagged Alliance: Flashback will launch in Q2 on Steam Early Access for everyone, making the game available to all who like cheesy one-liners and tactical turn-based combat. Developer Full Control seeks to collect early feedback from the community through Steam Early Access to enable all fans of the series to have an active part in the development process. Through the additional funding new features and content can be added to make the game that fans of the franchise have always imagined.

Based in the late-1980’s on the fictional Caribbean Island of San Hermanos, “ The Prince”, the elected president, uses his powerful military forces to stop a rebellious group who are attempting to overthrow him. “The Prince” does not play by the rules and the revolutionaries are powerless against his military forces. The rebel leader gets arrested, and the insurgent army dissolves. Once players arrive on San Hermanos to get the rebel leader out of prison, things take a turn for the worse.

Gameplay features a unique mix of deep turn-based tactics, role-playing and sector management. The Kickstarter campaign, and now the Steam Early Access release, gives fans the opportunity to determine the scope and scale of Jagged Alliance: Flashback by directly influencing the shape of the game and participating during its development.

History of the Jagged Alliance Franchise:
Jagged Alliance was first released in 1994 and is still counted as one the best turn-based strategy games of its time. After the release of the refined Jagged Alliance 2 in 1999 over time the series became a classic never forgotten by its fans. The franchise received a reboot in 2010 with Jagged Alliance – Back in Action, which received mixed reactions from the community and press after its departure from turn-based action gameplay. Full Control plan to reset the franchise with the launch of Jagged Alliance: Flashback through Kickstarter.
