Our release date for version 1.0 of the software remains May 15, one
week from today, but the current build is quite stable and a blast to
play. We decided to do an “advance release” of the pre-1.0 version of
the game in response to requests from gamers who weren’t able to be part
of the closed beta.
All future patches for AI War will be free, regardless of when you
purchase the game. We play this game ourselves (it’s replaced our other
weekly RTS sessions), so rest assured that we’re committed to
continually updating and expanding the game. In addition to a pair of
planned expansion packs (pricing TBA), we’ll also be including free DLC
for all players. During the first month after release, we’ll have at
least one free new unit, gameplay mode, AI type, or game mechanic per week.
After the first month, we’ll be adding at least one of those new
features for free every month, even after the expansion packs come out
in 3-6 months.
AI War is already a huge game — it will take you well over 120 hours
to see every current feature if you play full campaigns — but we’re
committed to expanding it even further. So much of this game is about
exploration that we want you to always have something new to discover!
