Grand Chien, a nation of rich natural resources and deep political divides, is thrown into chaos when the elected president goes missing and a paramilitary force known as “The Legion” seizes control of the countryside. Now, the President’s family has pulled together all their resources, including an arrangement with the powerful Adonis corporation, to hire a group of skilled mercenaries tasked with finding the President and bringing order back to the country.

In Jagged Alliance 3, select from a huge cast of mercenaries all with their own unique personalities, quirks, and backstories. Then go out and explore Grand Chien as you meet new people, earn money, grow your team, and ultimately make your own decisions that will decide the country’s fate.

FEATURES
  • Engage in rich, tactical turn-based combat
  • Recruit from a large cast of unique mercenaries, including many familiar fan favorites
  • Loot, salvage, and customize an arsenal of weaponry and equipment
  • Choose from a wide array of special perks to customize your mercs as they level up
  • Decide the fate of Grand Chien in an open RPG structure
  • Control territory, train the locals, command multiple parties, and defend against enemy forces in an alive, active world
  • Experience the campaign with friends in online co-op mode

All Good Things Come in Threes: Jagged Alliance Finally Gets a True Successor

Sofia, Bulgaria / Vienna, Austria, September 17th, 2021: Fans have been waiting for decades, to see the third edition of the legendary strategy franchise Jagged Alliance. The strategy game experts from Haemimont Games, well known for their work on the Tropico-Series, Surviving Mars, Victor Vran and many other great games will finally create a true successor to the beloved series. This time, the player takes command of a mercenary organization in the fictional country of Grand Chien - a land thrown into chaos after a brutal paramilitary force known as "the Legion" took over. Jagged Alliance 3 will combine tactically deep, turn-based combat with exploration of a large game world with strategic elements including gaining control over territories, training local forces, and establishing multiple squads chosen from beloved mercenaries - all well known to fans of the series. Jagged Alliance 3 will have RPG-elements like special perks or level-ups for your mercenaries, as well as looting and customizing your arsenal of weaponry. Coming to PC, Jagged Alliance 3 will also feature a co-op multiplayer mode so you can free Grand Chien together with a friend.

Looks like some kind of nuXcom clone.

In PP you waste time pixelhunting, in the video the player just clicks an icon.
My expectations are low but calling it a nuCOM clone is just wrong.

Rotatable 3d isometric cameras with zoom were a mistake. The fact they usually accompany games with a modest budget makes them even more egregious and the games they feature in unanimously aesthetically unappealing.

This doesn't even look horrible, just generic I can't even be really angry at it, I am disappointed.

It's set in 2000, which explains why Ivan isn't 50+. Good from a gameplay prospective too since the innovations of the last two decades (cheap body armor, cheap optics, cheap drones, cheap sub-MoA rifles, cheap night vision, even an African shithole having cellphones everywhere) are rather detrimental to JA2's gameplay style. Hopefully it isn't full of anachronisms.

Edit: Strangely, the AKs seen in gameplay footage (but not art or pre-rendered footage) all seem to be Romanian ones (note the wooden foregrip). Weird choice and I wonder why they went with that. Maybe they're including progression of AK quality (Chinese garbage that uses pen springs<low quality eastern block<Norinco<authentic Russian<modern tacticool)? Alternatively, the devs are Bulgarian (directly north of Romania), so it might just what they had access to for a reference model and the other stuff is by different artist.

Graphics look very nice, with some nice verticality and tons of cover spots
Tropico developer means they have skill and experience to do some interesting things with the strategic layer of the game. Hopefully they do some daring things like supply lines and construction of infrastructure.
But realistically, I think the result would be taking some elements from Rage and Flashback and polishing them to extreme.

Looks like...
Body armor will not change merc appearance
No energy meter, you can sprint and crawl all over with a HK21 possibly without any penalty...

Wondering about...
How stealth is going to work and multiple deployment of squads
Environmental destruction
M.E.R.C.
Modes of transportation
Skill progression

Interesting note I checked Igor's stat numbers from the trailer to JA2 counterparts and they're the same. No change seems rather weird in this respect considering the passage of time.
