Back to News Listing First Major Update for Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge

Posted: Thursday, December 18, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

A crucial bug fix and plenty of balance tweaks come careening across the African countryside and onto hard drives!

Matrix Games and GFI (www.gfi.su) are pleased to announce the release of a major first update for the turn-based tactical hit, Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge. The comprehensive update brings the game to version 1.07.001 and provides many gameplay tweaks and a fix to prevent the “vanishing squad” icon bug appearing in new games started with this updated version.

 

Specifically, camera restrictions were substantially reduced to provide much more zoom and pan freedom in tactical mode, the AI now throws grenades less frequently and less accurately, weapons and mercenaries are now more lethal overall, weapons and armor appear more frequently at the weapons store, and other tweaks to make the game easier and more balanced on the “Newbie” and “Mercenary” difficulties.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Players who found the game too difficult or unbalanced at the Mercenary or Easy levels should definitely download this update. The game has been improved substantially in many areas and the overall Hired Guns experience is now much more enjoyable!”

 

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. 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.

 

Get the update here. The update is comprehensive and will bring all versions of the game up to version 1.07.001.

Strategic Command Blog Post #2: 'Artificial Intelligence'

Thursday, August 11, 2016

In 2002, the original Strategic Command game was a relatively simple construct. With a limited rule set and a much smaller 62x37 map of approximately 2300 hexes, the requirements for the AI were not necessarily trivial, but in general terms, they were straightforward.

Fast forward to today, and Strategic Command WWII: War in Europe has been expanded into a modifiable hexagonal game engine allowing map sizes of up to 512x512 or 262,144 hexes!
