Battle Academy Latest Updates
This is the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the landing of the Allies at Normandy, and wargame publishers Slitherine and Matrix Games are offering a 30% discount of their wargames from now through Sunday.
Slitherine has announced a new expansion for Battle Academy, called Fortress Metz. The town is located in Lorraine, France, and was annexed by Germany in 1940, becoming a stronghold for the Third Reich and a target for the Allies.
Strategy house Slitherine has lost "tens of thousands of dollars" and a "big commercial opportunity" because of their casual title Battlefield Academy.
Slitherine were "caught in the middle" because it was a BBC brand, and the UK broadcaster "wasn't prepared to start a fight" with EA. They chose to rebrand.
