Jagged Alliance: Flashback headed to Steam Early Access

Closed alpha now live for Kickstarter backers.

Kickstarter success Jagged Alliance: Flashback launchs on Steam as an Early Access title during the second quarter of 2014, developer Full Control has announced, before a full release "late" this year.

The game launches in closed alpha today, meanwhile, for those who backed the game at the relevant level during its crowdfunding drive.

Jagged Alliance: Flashback managed to hit its $350,000 (£210k) target during its Kickstarter campaign to reboot the classic military RPG series on PC and Mac.

Based in a Cold War version of the Caribbean, Flashback includes familiar features such as turn-based tactical battles, RPG elements and sector management.

"We are happy to announce that Jagged Alliance: Flashback is finally in Alpha, with Steam Early Access close on its heels," Full Control boss Thomas Lund said. "Fans of the franchise will be excited about the return of the beloved turn-based action of the original game, and we can't wait to get feedback from our Kickstarter backers and the rest of the community when Early Access on Steam begins."
