Last year, Haemimont Games and THQ Nordic launched Jagged Alliance 3 and it was quite the impressive return for the somewhat troubled franchise. Now, in the most recent update for the game, the developers are putting power into the players’ hands when it comes to content. The “Larry” update for Jagged Alliance 3 was just rolled out and it features a suit of mod tools, allowing players to create maps, change rules, and make their own campaigns.

THQ Nordic and Haemimont Games shared details about the “Larry” update for Jagged Alliance 3 in a press release this week. This update is chock full of fixes, tweaks, and upgrades for the game, but the biggest addition by far is the mod support and tools upgrade. With these tools now available, players can design maps, craft unique campaigns, and fiddle with various aspects of the game. For instance, you can change a Body Count rule to increase the volume of enemy combatants. You can also fiddle with Mercenary hiring rules to adjust salaries and availability of mercs.
