Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge is a classic turn-based tactical strategy with strong RPG elements, and fully destroyable environment. It offers well known mechanics and atmosphere of the original games, as well as the pleasure of meeting good old friends - A.I.M. mercenaries.

Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge is a turn-based strategy that puts you command of a squad of specialists for hire in the genre’s biggest game-world yet: the African country Diamond Coast. Found in one of the world’s darkest corners, Diamond Coast is a playground for the cruel and corrupt, each with their own agenda. Choose your friends wisely and buy an army of ruthless mercenaries to unleash mayhem on the African countryside. Choose “jobs” from different factions and complete them for cash to upgrade weapons and hire more elite soldiers of fortune.

Tons of firepower will let your team destroy anything standing, but smooth talk and a wad of bills can also go a long way towards ensuring success. With multiple story lines and endings, you’re in total control of your own fate

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge combines an addictive tactical mode reminiscent of previous great tactical games with a strategic mode that lets the player choose where to go and what to do, as well as equip and train all of their soldiers for maximum effectiveness. Hired Guns takes a solid and proven game concept and expands on it to create a wholly new but still familiar experience.”
