When it comes to turn-based tactics games, there are certainly some great choices out there, but for those loving that mercenary life, the Jagged Alliance series is where all the action is at.

With such a huge legacy that dates back all the way to 1995, fans are definitely hoping that Jagged Alliance 3 is an improvement without overhauling the beloved formula, and developers Haemimont Games and THQ Nordic are ensuring that is the case with Ian Currie, one of the creators of the entire series, as part of the team.

Working with the designer responsible for the original concept of Jagged Alliance is certainly a step in the right direction, and Currie has been been involved in the Jagged Alliance 3 project since day one as its writer.

Having already seen the impact of both the first game and Jagged Alliance 2, there is even more hope that this upcoming entry will be the best one yet.

Jagged Alliance games are known for their unique blend of strategic campaign management, a huge world to explore, diverse side-quests, in-depth tactical combat, and beloved characters.

The upcoming Jagged Alliance 3 will stay true to these elements, and from the new Legacy trailer, both Currie and the Haemimont Games team definitely know what they are talking about.

In Jagged Alliance 3, players can select from a huge cast of mercenaries, all with their own unique personalities, quirks, and backstories.

Explore the nation of Grand Chien as you meet new people, earn money, grow your team, and ultimately make your own decisions that will decide the country's fate.

While the game is not near completion, this new announcement will surely please longtime fans and help make Jagged Alliance 3 an even more enticing prospect for those new to the series.

The game is currently in development for PC and is set to release later this year.
