We are excited to announce the release of a free community pack for the critically-acclaimed tactical strategy game Battle Academy for iPad, PC and Mac. Created by some of the best modders from the community, this free content pack contains something for everyone, both online and off!
In the content pack there are two campaigns, one for single player titled “Crete: Operation Mercury” by “LouisM”. Command German airborne troops during the invasion of Crete in May 1941. Five missions including new units, custom game mechanics, and a brand new tileset bring the battle for the Greek island to life! The second is a multiplayer Force Selection mission pack titled “Fast & Sneaky” by “GottaLove88s”,”Enric”, and “rf900”. This features three force selection maps each offering a different challenge. In Force Selection, players can pick and choose their forces to fight rather than pre-made battlegroups. Want to use more infantry, or all armor? Try a defensive force or a manouvre force? You have those options and more in this pack plus new commands to merge injured infantry units and swap gridlocked units.

Approachable, absorbing and visually impressive yet detailed, Battle Academy revolutionizes the strategy games market with a blend of intuitive design and compelling game play driven by cutting edge technical innovation.
Inspired by an original online game concept devised by the BBC, the game has more than 30 battles in a range of theatres of war from the North African desert through D-Day to the to the snowy Ardennes mountains where the Allies battled to repel the final German offensive.
The team at Slitherine worked with Professor John Buckley, Military Historian at the University of Wolverhampton and a keen wargamer himself, to make sure that the strategy, tactics, scenarios and available firepower of the battles fought in WW2 were turned into realistic AI behavior, powering expertly crafted battles.
For you Ipad BA users and the Pip , i could not download the new user contact via my ipad , in fact all previous user contact had disappeared , even after restarting the the Ipad. The only way i could get it was to uninstall BA on the Ipad and reinstall it again via itunes , you will loose all the game and have to do the tutorial battle again to unlock the other scenarios.
Thanks for the tip IDS, I had the same problem. Couldn't see the new content on iPad, so followed your advice. Deleted BA and re-installed for free from iTunes... Suddenly I can see the new content. Will have to re-install the paid-for Slith scenarios though...
Gents, If you've downloaded previous versions of Fast & Sneaky MP, using the forum links over the summer, please delete those older versions. Slith have called the user-content version something slightly different, so it's smarter to download the campaign from within the BA app, so players can find each other. I'll put up a warning on the Fast & Sneaky pages...
