Back to News Listing Battle Academy: Fortress Metz Released!

Posted: Wednesday, November 27, 2013 by Filippo Chianetta

Type: Press Release

 

One of the most critically-acclaimed tactical wargames, Battle Academy, adds a new recruit to its ranks: Fortress Metz.

Metz, located in Lorraine, has for centuries been an historic garrison town. After its annexation to Germany following the Battle of France in 1940, it became a stronghold for the Third Reich and a major target for the Allied forces. Following  the Normandy landings, the U.S. Third Army under the command of General George S. Patton attacked the city fortifications and, after four months of fighting, broke through and freed  Metz from occupation in late 1944.

With new Panzer Brigades and units like the Hummel, Sdkfz 234/1 armored cars and more, Fortress Metz is a must-have expansion for any wargamer interested in reliving those days!

The game is available for PC and iPad as an in-app purchase.
 

We are also releasing the v2.5 patch for Battle Academy which includes new units, objects, tiles from the Fortress Metz campaign, memory optimization, AI and multiplayer stability improvements, bug fixes and much more!

You can download the patch here. iPad users can get the update via iTunes.
A full change list can be found here.


Get more information about Battle Academy: Fortress Metz on its official product page.

Fortress Metz is an add-on for Battle Academy and requiresBattle Academy to play!
