It seems that it was Haemimont itself that provided THQ Nordic with a new turn-based tactical franchise game, with the new Jagged Alliance game being one of three “dream IP” the company wanted to work on. The studio noted at the briefing that Haimimont approached her with a pitch that was something of a spin-off.

The cast of characters in the game will improve with new perks, and some will have their own specific perks. Beloved mercenaries from previous games will return, including Ivan, Bun, Tex, and Len. Missions are played in turn-based engagements, and you can play the campaign alone or in an online co-op. The gameplay seems to be a fusion of Firaxis and XCOM’s fashionable modernity, which describes the zigzag alliances of characters pointing action points at different body parts.

The new Jagged Alliance games from various developers are set in fictional worlds full of resources and complicated political situations, which is uncharted territory for the Haemimont Games Tropico series. This takes players to an exotic and remote region where a newly established paramilitary organization called the Legion has established totalitarian control. The game takes place in the Grand Chiens, a nation rich in mineral resources but with deep political divisions.
