Jagged Alliance Online, a browser-based MMO based on the turn-based strategy series Jagged Alliance, will let players battle both A.I. and human opponents. Today developer Cliffhanger Productions detailed the multiplayer modes.
The latest update to JAO's closed beta adds three multiplayer modes and six arenas. Each Arena has its own lobby and rankings. Each player's "strength" for matchmaking is based on their level and position in rankings. Cliffhanger hopes this will result in duels between players of equivalent skill.
Deathmatch mode is a straightforward battle between two players. In Bounty Hunter, you must sneak or fight your way past guards to kill an NPC before your opponent can do the same. Search and Destroy mode tasks you with defending three items in the arena from your enemy while destroying three that belong to the opposing player.
The six arenas, two for each mode, bring the action to hotspots around the globe:
