Bitcomposer and Kalypso Media have announced Jagged Alliance: Crossfire, a standalone expansion to Jagged Alliance: Back in Action.
In Crossfire, players are transported to Khanpaa, a peaceful country suffering under the brutal attacks of mercenary troops. To save his country from these bloody massacres, Ambassador Behnam Atiqullahs has no other choice but to hire his own mercenary teams to get to the bottom of these inexplicable and bloodthirsty attacks and to put an end to Khanpaa’s agony.
Features of Jagged Alliance: Crossfire:
The first completely new story in the Jagged Alliance universe in almost a decade
Unique mix of tactics, RTS, RPG and economic simulation gameplay
Optional line of sight mode and fog-of-war
New location, new enemies, new weapons, new threats!
Ten new M.E.R.C. mercenaries, bringing the roster up to 50 mercs
Oh yes! JA:BiA has been a much needed modern and beautiful entry in the subgenre, and an expansion with a new story and locations is a must buy for me unless they decide to mess up the mechanics somehow. Though I wish they'd remove the level cap on mercs, and do something to make looting a sector after you capture it easier... my two reservations on an otherwise outstanding game.
