Guns, mercenaries, and African dictatorships to come to the Matrix online store

Matrix Games and GFI (www.gfi.su) are pleased to announce that Matrix Games will be bringing the highly anticipated tactical combat game Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge to the Matrix Games Online Store for its official online release in late November! With anticipation for Hired Guns steadily growing since it was praised as having everything the original [Jagged Alliance] has – and more,” gamers can expect to be hiring mercenaries, planning strategies and using combat tactics to overthrow (or help) African dictators and get rich in the process by late November.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge combines an addictive tactical mode reminiscent of previous great tactical games with a strategic mode that lets the player choose where to go and what to do, as well as equip and train all of their soldiers for maximum effectiveness.  Hired Guns takes a solid and proven game concept and expands on it to create a wholly new but still familiar experience.”

 

Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge is a turn-based strategy 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.  Choose “jobs” from different factions and complete them for cash to upgrade your weapons and hire more elite soldiers of fortune.

 

Tons of firepower and plenty of combat experience will give your team the edge when it comes to fighting, but smooth talk and a wad of bills can also go a long way towards ensuring success. With multiple story lines and endings, you’re in total control of your own fate.

 

  • Ally with up to four different factions for unique bonuses.
  • Crush your enemies with over 150 upgradeable weapons.
  • Hire over 30 mercenaries with various specialties and skills.
  • 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.
  • Attach special equipment to weapons like laser sights, scopes, grenade launches, and more to maximize their lethality.
  • Smooth talk your enemies into working for you with the right combination of intimidation, wisdom, and money.
  • Survey terrain and buildings in a fully 3D tactical mode. Zoom up close and personal to your mercenaries or back from the action to get a larger picture of the battle.
  • Complete side missions to gain extra cash or loyalty
  • Upgrade captured territories with extra defense or squeeze more cash from them with new facilities and upgrades.
