Lock ‘n Load Publishing Places Battle Pack Alpha on Pre-Order

Rocky Mount, VA, September 11, 2007 - Everyone has been asking for more Lock ‘n Load scenarios, so we decided to do something about it. Battle Pack Alpha is that something. Twelve scenarios designed to increase the replayability of your Lock "n Load games. Included are missions in the jungles of Vietnam, the streets of Arnhem, and the small, Belgian village of Foy. There are Jewish Partisans defending their home, German panzers attacking a Russian bridgehead, and North Vietnamese regulars storming an American-held hill. See below for a complete description of the included scenarios. Battle Pack Alpha is due out in November. For more information, or to order, go to
