Jagged Alliance: Back in Action on February 14

Old warriors never retire, they simply wait for someone to revamp their video game a few years later. The hard-working mercs of Jagged Alliance: Back in Action will return to our screens on February 14, publisher Kalypso Media has announced.

Back in Action brings Jagged Alliance 2 into shiny 3D to once again toss a naughty dictator off the island he's taken over, though a few things are different. Most notably, where combat was once turn-based, it's now a blend of turn-based and real-time, somewhat resembling Frozen Synapse.

Jagged Alliance: Back in Action can be pre-ordered from Steam now at the discounted price of $33.49, though it's a Steamworks title so retail copies will be activated on Steam anyway. The European release is slated for February 10.

You'll find a few glimpses of the new "plan & go" combat in action in this trailer:
