Jagged Alliance Online is a browser-based tactical MMORPG developed by Cliffhanger Productions and published by Gamigo AG and BitComposer Games. It was announced on August 18, 2010. The game is currently live.
The gameplay is turnbased, in a manner similar to Jagged Alliance and Jagged Alliance 2. It is also greatly simplifed, with most abilities and skills taken out. Now there are only five things a merc can do: move,switch stance, look in a direction, pick up, and shoot/reload. Instead of thrown explosives, the player shoots strategically placed fuel barrels to cause explosions.
Gus Tarballs makes a comeback as the narrator, guiding the player through most missions. Many characters from Jagged Alliance 2 return as well including many characters that were previously RPCs such as Dynamo and Dimitri. M.E.R.C. is disbanded, though most of their employees can now be found in the A.I.M. roster. There are no new mercenaries in Jagged Alliance Online.
Characters are now separated into classes, which informs what traits each mercenary has and what weapons and abilities they specialize in. The available classes are Scout, Commando, Soldier, Sniper and Gunner.
