Jagged Alliance - Back in Action Now On Linux

By - | Views: 5,885
Jagged Alliance Back in Action is a contemporary remake of the latest title in the much-loved Jagged Alliance series of turn-based mercenary-themed strategy games.

Sadly it is not very highly rated, but who knows maybe it has been polished up since the original release.

The developers noted this about the release:
QuoteHello everybody!

We are proud to announce that Jagged Alliance: Back in Action is now also available for MAC and Linux platforms. Ported by Bigmoon Studios using Unity engine, the game will now let you free Arulco on OSX and Ubuntu just as well as on Windows. The best thing about it: Everyone that already owns Jagged Alliance: Back in Action on Windows will automatically get access to the two new versions as well. Just log in to your Steam account on your MAC or Linux system, download the game and start playing! New customers will also automatically get all three versions.

IMPORTANT: Please note that we cannot ensure that any of the DLCs work with the MAC and LINUX versions. Also, cross-platform saving and loading is unfortunately not possible. The language of the MAC and Linux version can be set ingame via the options menu, not via the game properties in the steam client.

Have lots of fun on Arulco!

Quite sad that the DLC may not work which seems like a pretty big thing to miss out, so it looks like we have been let down on that side of it.
I am guessing that is because the Windows version isn't using Unity, where as the Mac and Linux versions are.

Unrivaled mix of combat (tactics), roleplay, business and strategy
Innovative “Plan & Go” combat system combines RTS gameplay with turn-based elements
Realistic war setting with authentic-looking firearms
Laptop/computer menu as a central anchor point for the player
Assemble your own unit of mercenaries from numerous unique mercenaries
Simultaneous control of multiple squads using a strategic map
Convincing characters who interact with and comment on the game events
All the dialog has audio
Acquire resources by capturing mines and encampments
