Gamigo, BitComposer Reveal Browser-based Jagged Alliance MMO

European publishers Gamigo and BitComposer Games announced a a browser-based, MMO interpretation of classic tactical RPG series Jagged Alliance, after BitComposer acquired the rights earlier this year.
European publishers Gamigo and BitComposer Games -- the latter of which acquired full rights to the property earlier this year -- announced a a browser-based, MMO interpretation of classic tactical RPG series Jagged Alliance. Titled Jagged Alliance Online, the new title promises to transfer the original games' mixture of tactics, strategy, roleplaying, and management to what the companies describe as "a modern MMO world", offering both both turn-based battles and real-time action from an isometric perspective. In this browser-based version, players once again manage a team of mercenaries, earning cash as they complete missions. As with previous titles, gamers hire soldiers of fortune, train them, and equip them with a variety of weapons and equipment as they progress. One new social feature Jagged Alliance Online will include is the ability for players to rent mercenaries from others, or rent out their own soldiers. The game will also enable players to "support or fight others on campaigns or missions". Cliffhanger Productions, which has previously contributed to titles such as Gothic 3, Spellforce 2, 7million, and Risen, is the primary developer for the game. You can register for Jagged Alliance Online's upcoming beta here. "The Jagged Alliance series is a cult classic and an online version has been on Gamigo's wishlist for a while now," says Patrick Streppel, an executive board member at Gamigo, which typically publishes free-to-play titles. "So we're all the more excited to have the global rights to this exciting project and will do everything in our power to live up to fans' expectations!"
