BA 2 - Eastern Front Development Forum

Post by pipfromslitherine » Fri Nov 16, 2012 6:33 pm

We're excited to announce the opening of a new forum dedicated to the next iteration of Battle Academy - Battle Academy 2: Eastern Front. BA 2 will feature the much requested Eastern Front in all its scope and ferocity. Lots of new units, new features, and new campaigns.

Even better, we are going to be using an open development process, where you can both suggest and comment on new features as we design them, and (later in the process) play with Alpha and Beta version far sooner than has been our usual approach.

We're really enthusiastic about this new way for us to develop our games, and we hope to see you in the new forum, giving us your ideas and feedback.

Check out the new forum here:

Cheers

Pip

BA East Front is definitely up there with Field of Glory - Napoleonics on my wishlist

We won't be in beta for a good while yet I imagine, 6 months or so at least. We'll do an announce to get people signed up nearer the time so keep your eyes peeled :)

Cheers

How will BA status be after the release of BA2?, I mean will BA be dropped down (obsolete) or will Slitherine continue giving support to this version?

I really hope so - I've just invested in four copies of BA :roll:
Edit: + 4 x expansions

We'll continue to support BA forever of course. Obviously though there are unlikely to be any non-critical updates for BA once BA 2 comes out, but that won't be for a year or more I would guess.

That was phase one, yes. Please mail all your old boxes in a self-addressed envelope to the main company offices where we will be placing new hand-drawn (so unique!) stickers across the front of each box. If your box should come back to you without the new name, but with an obscene message and some disturbing imagery then we apologise - but sometimes things just get too much for Iain and he has one of his turns...

;)

Don't worry - I have people to draw the obscene images for me now. We've hit the big time!

Images taken from a football match perhaps to save on expense of original graphics?

That's great news! There's a lot of war gamers out there with an interest in the Eastern Front. I think you may be overwhelmed by beta tester requests when the game is ready for testing!
