Slitherine announces new strategy game: Battlefield Academy

Slitherine, the publisher behind military strategy games such as Field of Glory, has announced a new turn-based strategy game.

Battlefield Academy was developed in collaboration with military historian at the University of Wolverhampton, Professor John Buckley. Slitherine claims this is to ensure all the strategy, tactics, scenarios and firepower available in the battles of World War 2 would be accurately recreated.

Players will be able to control British, US, Polish, Canadian, Italian and German forces in three campaigns covering more than 30 varied battles. Gameplay features include ambushes, line of sight, artillery barrages, airstrikes, scouts, morale, APCs, flame throwers, heavy bombers, snipers and suppression. The game also includes a Play by E-mail system.

Slitherine has published an extensive back-catalogue of military strategy games, including Conquest! Medieval Realms, Great Battles of Rome, Medieval Great Battles, and Gates of Troy.
