Battle of Kursk released and Eastern Front Updated!

Post by Daniele » Thu Apr 02, 2015 1:24 pm

Today we are very excited to announce the release of Battle of Kursk - the first expansion of Battle Academy 2 – on PC, Mac and iPad!

Driven by two new challenging campaigns, this expansion includes a carryover system that invites you to have the wider strategic picture in mind when they plan their next turn. As the head of both armies, you will also have to quickly identify the strengths of the new units available to bring out the best of them.

Grab the game here!

But the news from the Ostfront are not over!

Battle Academy 2: Eastern Front base gameis updated to Version 1.0.4!

This version is available with several improvements and bug fixes! Now skirmish map generation scripts are in DATA/BATTLE/SCRIPTS (and this allows them to be over-ridden in a campaign for custom skirmish map generation) and the bug related to the sniper's animation is fixed.

Be sure to check the list of changes and bug fixes here!
You can download the patch from:
PC here
OSX here

Do you want more?
A terrific 50% launch discount is available on PC only! We are going to offer a free Steam key to anyone who bought a copy of the PC/Mac version from the Matrix Games or Slitherine store, once the game is available on this digital platform!

Get more information on Battle Academy 2 from its official product page.

The link on the page it takes you to is incorrect. Try grabbing the zip from above which should contain the correct update.

Cheers

How do iPad users update? Seems there's no link for it.

Edit: Never mind. Should use my own head before mindlessly asking questions lol.

Elefants! The best tank destroyer ever. Aren't very mobile, but in defense they are my favorite! Thank you for this update.

Perhaps this is not a question I should be asking?

The price for the IAP should show up in the campaigns list ingame on iPad. I believe it is $9.99 or equivalent in your currency.

In has 2 campaigns, each of 6 connected scenarios.

Thanks for the info :) Weirdly the layout doesn't show a price in the campaigns page and the dollar sign is aligned a bit above the other text so I thought it might be doing something wrong. The Pike and Shot IAP doesn't show price either (until you have added your password and see a final confirmation pop up)... That takes about 5 clicks and a password, which may deter some users.

Anyways - thanks for the info :)

Those elephants are really auwesome! Originally the germans used them as line breakers wich was a bad idea because of lack of machine guns and pover mobility.
Put them a bit behind in your force and there long range tank kill power will make the difference.
