With the recently formed partnership between Strategy First and Sir Tech Canada, whereby Strategy First obtains the rights to manage the Jagged Alliance franchise, Sir Tech Canada and Strategy First announced today that they are developing a Jagged Alliance 2: Gold Pack, scheduled for release later this summer. Featuring an enhanced version of Jagged Alliance 2, the Gold Pack will offer players some unique twists on the original Jagged Alliance 2.

“Jagged Alliance 2: Gold Pack is a great addition to the market, “said Steve Milburn, Director of Marketing for Strategy First. “Both Jagged Alliance 2 and Unfinished Business did very well when they were first released and by combining both of them, players receive two quality titles for the price of one.”

“It’s very exciting for us to have been able to enhance Jagged Alliance 2 with the improvements that were made for JA2: Unfinished Business. We’re also very pleased to have Strategy First handling the product and hope that this gives new players the opportunity experience Jagged Alliance”, said Ian Currie, original Creator of Jagged Alliance.

Jagged Alliance 2: Gold Edition features the wildly popular strategy titles Jagged Alliance 2 and its mini-sequel, Unfinished Business. The Gold Edition immerses players into an elaborate universe where they will interact with more than 150 characters, recruit their own band of soldiers and create their own custom mercenary to win back the territory of Arulco. With improved enemy AI, weapons balance, interface and a brand new “Iron Man” mode, Jagged Alliance 2: Gold Edition promises to provide players with hours of addictive gameplay.

About Jagged Alliance 2

The small country of Arulco has been taken over by a merciless dictator. The helpless nation has little chance against the dictator’s brutal army and their only hope rest in the hands of a ragtag bunch of rebels. In cahoots with the rebels, players must fight with some of the world’s best mercenaries to retain control of Arulco. Player must use a fine balance of negotiation, strategic tactics and battle strength to claim victory.

About Unfinished Business

Jagged Alliance 2: Unfinished Business extends the original storyline of Jagged Alliance, putting Arulco under attack once again, but this time, from powers within. Ricci Mining and Exploration Co., who ran the country’s mines before the recent civil war, want to reclaim their mines and are based in the neighboring country of Tracona where they will launch a missile attack on Arulco. Players must cross the border into Tracona, find the missile base, destroy it and make their way home safely.
