Play OverviewPlay Overview

Jagged Alliance 3 (2023) is a strategy battle game where you lead a squad of mercenaries tasked with finding the President and bringing order back to the country. Play involves recruiting a team of heroes to take on tactical turn-based combat. It stands out for the level of control and realism - expect to think out of the box, particularly when weapons jam or buildings collapse unexpectedly.

The game is set in Grand Chien, a nation of rich natural resources and deep political divides. After the president goes missing you are tasked with bringing perpetrators to justice and saving the president. You do this through a series of battles that require careful planning that takes advantage of the simulated world - bullets penetrate materials, explosives destroy buildings and wounds don't magically heal.

As you progress you learn to eke out your action points. Will you take a single well-aimed shot at a specific body part, switch firing modes and go full auto, set your snipers on overwatch or change stances ready for attack?

The result is a game where the details matter. This is held together with the dynamic campaign map that provides context about each individual battle and how the enemy forces react to wins and losses. them as they attempt to retake these territories.

Rated PEGI 18 for graphic violence, violence against vulnerable and defenceless characters, and the use of strong language. This game contains scenes of graphic violence. Shots to the head can cause decapitation and explosions of bloody chunks. It is also possible to direct violence towards vulnerable and defenceless characters, including unarmed hostages. Throughout the game, the player is also forced to choose to spare or kill some key characters whilst they are defenceless, which affects the ending of the game. General combat also features strong bloody violence, with characters recoiling from bullet impacts, which result in blood sprays. This game contains frequent use of strong language ('*!@?*' and '*!@?*'). There is a brief verbal reference to a character taking their own life. The game also features a location which is a brothel. There is no visible nudity or sex, although there is innuendo about what goes on there.
