Jagged Alliance: Back in Action follow up DLC

Bracknell, UK, 14 th June, 2012 – Following Shades of Red, the second DLC, titled Point Blank, was released today as the next addition to the successful strategy game Jagged Alliance: Back in Action. The new downloadable content is now available from Steam for £3.99 GBP/ €3.99 EUR.

Point Blank takes place in a government district where the US ambassador John Gaiden is being held hostage. Renegade ex-CIA agent Rygor Manson is behind the kidnapping, and this means that freeing the ambassador will require real pros—Gus Tarballs, Robert James “Scully” Sullivan, and Donna “Spider” Housten are on the way…

This completely new story from the Jagged Alliance world gives the player a deeper insight into the past of these three mercenaries — all of their experience will be needed in harrowing urban battles in the maze-like government district. The three can rely on the support of a new recruitable NPC in rescuing the US ambassador. In addition, Point Blank has four new Steam achievements in store for the player.
