The hotly awaited tactical turn-based game is now available for purchase from Matrix!

Matrix Games ( is excited to announce that Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge is now available for purchase via the Matrix Games Online Store. Now gamers can enjoy the intense tactical action and intriguing strategic gameplay all while criss-crossing a fictional African landscape! To mark the occasion, a new pack of screenshots exhibiting the addictive tactical and strategic action is now available for download.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Hired Guns has been highly anticipated by fans of the genre for quite some time and we’re confident that this title will deliver all the tactical turn-based action they can handle.”

Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge is a turn-based strategy game that puts you command of a squad of specialists for hire in the genre’s biggest game-world yet: the African country Diamond Coast. Diamond Coast is a playground for the cruel and corrupt, each with their own agenda. Choose your friends wisely and buy an army of ruthless mercenaries to unleash mayhem on your foes.

  • Crush your enemies with over 150 upgradeable weapons.
  • Hire over 30 mercenaries to fill out multiple squads with various specialties and skills and unique personalities, some work together better than others - you'll need not only mercenaries with good weapon skills, but also medics, mechanics, scouts and leaders
  • Destroy everything in your path with a fully interactive world and realistic physics.
  • Gain territory with brains, brawn or cold hard cash.
  • Determine your own fate with multiple storylines and endings
  • Train your mercenaries to becomes experts at their craft or create all-around soldiers effective at every facet of combat.

I purchased Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge today and spent the next hour or so downloading the 2.26 GB zip file (The DR purchase lists the download, once you click the download button, as 2.26 GM. I checked...the downloaded zip file was indeed 2.26 GB). Once unzipped, however, the file was only 2.43 GB and when I tried to run it, I got an error saying an archive check had failed, probably because the download was incomplete or corrupt. I have purchased many Matrix games and never had this problem. What should I do now? You have my money and I have no game.
