Back to News Listing First Major Update for Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge

Posted: Thursday, December 18, 2008 by Sean Drummy

Type: Press Release

A crucial bug fix and plenty of balance tweaks come careening across the African countryside and onto hard drives!

Matrix Games and GFI (www.gfi.su) are pleased to announce the release of a major first update for the turn-based tactical hit, Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge. The comprehensive update brings the game to version 1.07.001 and provides many gameplay tweaks and a fix to prevent the “vanishing squad” icon bug appearing in new games started with this updated version.

 

Specifically, camera restrictions were substantially reduced to provide much more zoom and pan freedom in tactical mode, the AI now throws grenades less frequently and less accurately, weapons and mercenaries are now more lethal overall, weapons and armor appear more frequently at the weapons store, and other tweaks to make the game easier and more balanced on the “Newbie” and “Mercenary” difficulties.

 

David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Players who found the game too difficult or unbalanced at the Mercenary or Easy levels should definitely download this update. The game has been improved substantially in many areas and the overall Hired Guns experience is now much more enjoyable!”

 

Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge is a turn-based strategy game that puts you command of a squad of specialists for hire in the genre’s biggest game-world yet: the African country Diamond Coast. 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 your foes. Choose “jobs” from different factions and complete them for cash to upgrade your weapons and hire more elite soldiers of fortune.

 

Tons of firepower and plenty of combat experience will give your team the edge when it comes to fighting, 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.

 

Get the update here. The update is comprehensive and will bring all versions of the game up to version 1.07.001.

“The path to paradise begins in hell(Dante Alighieri – Italian poet)

The angelic and peaceful kingdom of Gilrand is in great danger. Led by Lord Devil in person, merciless demons are raiding the defenseless Human world.

An epic fight between these two fundamentally opposed factions is bound to begin!

Since its PC release last November, HELL has been further polished by developer Hunted Cow, receiving a major update which added brand new game modes.

To End All Wars Breaking The Deadlock Released!

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Once the mass of the defending infantry become possessed of low morale, the battle is as good as lost.” (Douglas Haig – Commander of British Expeditionary Force)

Early 1915 – After a massive initial push from the Central Powers on the Western Front, the war is bogged down. Commanders from both sides protect their positions with strong defensive structures and fail to find breaches in the enemy lines. Artillery and barbed wire make the assaults deadly and wasteful. But in Breaking the Deadlock, the first expansion of Ageod’s World War 1 wargame To End All Wars, players can develop new tactics to outsmart their opponent and break the stalemate once and for all!

Breaking the Deadlock focuses on key moments of the Great War. It provides a series of short, intense and very detailed scenarios in which every single turn has decisive consequences on the final outcome of the battle!

And It's not over! We are also releasing patch 1.02 for the base game, bringing a host of improvements, including bug fixes, scenario changes and much more!
