Back to News Listing A New Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge Video Now Available

Posted: Monday, November 24, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

Another gameplay video for Hired Guns is now available just before the game’s anticipated release!

Matrix Games, Tri Synergy (www.trisynergy.com) and GFI (www.gfi.su) are thrilled to release another tactical gameplay video (YouTube version) for Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge. Like the first trailer, this video shows off some of the tactical action found in Hired Guns: Cold cash or quick wits can get the player almost everything but when all else fails, there’s always brute force to get the point across. In the latest video, a small group of well-armed mercenaries is met with the same situation – and it doesn’t work out well for their enemies.

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Hired Guns has been hotly awaited by tactical fans for some time. Matrix Games is proud to be working with Tri Synergy in bringing this brilliant blend of strategy and tactical action to gamers everywhere.”


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.


Features include:

  • 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.

Desert War is OUT

Thursday, March 22, 2018

1940. While in Europe the German war machine seems unstoppable, in the desert of North Africa the British and its Commonwealth Allies are not willing to concede an easy victory to the Axis. Italian forces - even if initially numerically superior - are not adequately trained or equipped for a prolonged war in such environment, and soon they send request for aid to avoid complete defeat. Berlin answers to the call and a blocking force led by General Erwin Rommel is organized and dispatched to the Libyan shores.

Now, the day has come. Are you ready for Desert War?


Desert War Tutorial Guide

Training is fondamental. Without that, even the best eqipped troops can be prey of a better prepared enemy. You must know your own troops, their potential and limits. 
As a commander, you must adapt your plan to un expected situations and quickly, because time is essential and the more you wait the more chances you are leaving to the enemy to exploit your mistakes.
This is even truer in desert warfare, where the harsh environment conditions have a direct impact on communication, movement and more.
