Jagged Alliance 2: Reloaded announced

Hot on the heads of the news earlier this week of the upcoming browser-based game Jagged Alliance Online comes word of yet another new game (sort of) for the turn-based tactical strategy series. BitComposer Games has just announced plans to release Jagged Alliance 2: Reloaded, a graphical remake of the last game in the series that was first released in 1999 from the now defunct developer Sir-Tech.

The new version will feature a full 3D engine but will retain the original's isometric view point. It will also have a revamped user interface and "an extensive tutorial will ease the player into the complex game rules system." The game is due for release sometime in 2011. BitComposer Games has already announced plans to release the long awaited Jagged Alliance 3 for release sometime in 2011 as well.

Yet another PC game franchise is getting a rebirth as a free-to-play game. Today Gamigo and BitComposer Games announced plans for Jagged Alliance Online, a revival of the classic turn-based strategy series that began in the 1990's by the now defunct SirTech.

The browser-based game will supposedly "built around the familiar Jagged Alliance games mechanics". As with the original games you will control a squad of mercenaries in an isometric viewpoint with turn-based and real time strategy mixed in the game design broth. The "Online" part of the game comes in when you can team up with friends for alliances or even borrow some of your buddies mercs to get the dirty job done. It's set for release in 2011.
