we've had a lot of questions about how the system works so we're trying to put all the info in one place.
If you have bought Battle Academy for PC/Mac from anyone anywhere you will have a serial. This serial is all you need to get your Steam key. The way the system works is you register your serial and then we issue you a Steam key.
Initially you will be able to generate a Steam key for the base game. Later as the expansions become available you'll also be able to generate Steam keys for those. We expect the base game to release on the 16th April and the expansions on the 23rd April.
The Steam version is exactly the same as the version we sell.
If you have a combo pack hat contains multiple expansions such as the Battle Academy Mega Pack, you must register each one separately. To do this use the mega pack serial for all expansions, or you can just log in to multiplayer and it will register them all for you.
Once you have registered a serial a button will appear to generate a Steam key. Click the button and the page will update to show your key. This page will track all the Steam keys you have redeemed.
We've tried to make it as universal as possible so it works for everyone no matter where they bought and will work for future releases. We've tested it thoroughly but as always when new software hits the wild there can be issues so if something goes wrong let us know and we'll get to fixing it ASAP.
The megapack is just a collection of 6 expansions. Use that serial to register the 6 expansions separately. You can do this manually or the simplest way is to just log in to multiplayer and all your expansions get registered automatically. You can then redeem the Steam keys for each expansion.
Steam deals with the megapack as a bundle of 6 items so there is no way to give a key to unlock all 6, you have to use 6 keys to unlock each separately.
OK, I have generated four Steam keys for the four expansions I've previously purchased (I don't have the Megapack). How do i register the expansions on Steam? Everytime I'm in the game and try to launch the expansion, it keeps taking me to the Steam DLC and says I need to cough up $9.99 for each expansion. Am I missing something?
