The game takes place in the fictional country of Arulco and you control a small group of rebels fighting against the country's brutal dictator.
As you play thgrough the dynamic levels you are able to train, customize and improve the capabilities and effectiveness of your mercenaries through the RPG-esque systems in the game. Jagged Alliance: Back In Action will also feature a real time combat mode.The release date at this year's E3 is October 18th in the US and 21st in the UK.
