AI War: Fleet Command is the flagship title of Arcen Games, first released in 2009. Up to eight players battle a pair of rampant artificial intelligences once used by warring human superpowers, in the aftermath of the AI's near complete victory over humanity. Human players must avoid the notice of AI powers while preparing for an attack against the AI homeworlds. The game takes place on a procedurally generated galaxy map with between 10 and 120 planets in a genre splicing mix of real-time strategy, 4X, and tower defence.

It has six expansions: The Zenith Remnant, Children of the Neinzul, Light of the Spire, Ancient Shadows, Vengeance of the Machine, and Destroyer of Worlds, which variously include additional units, critical paths, AI types, lore, and music. The game is in ongoing development and receives regular bug fixes and balance adjustments based on community feedback. Major version updates typically coincide with new expansions and sometimes fold improvements from expansion development into the base game.

AI War is known for its gameplay depth, the behavior of its AI opponents, and strong ties between fans and creators.

In an average game, the player's navy revolves around groups of fleet ships supplemented by starships and support vessels. A comprehensive ship compendium is being added, of which you can currently begin browsing by visiting the basic triangle ships: Fighters, Bombers, and Missile Frigates.

Please note that there are generally prerelease beta versions available at any given time of the year, and there have been literally hundreds of those in between all of the official releases noted below.

[edit] The New System That Began In 4.0

Brace yourself: but the entire combat, repair, economic, and construction models have been almost completely rewritten. To the novice player these changes are subtle enough that it feels like basically the same game. To the more experienced player, these changes are a dream come true, shaving off rough edges left and right and leaving something simpler and more elegant in its place. We had a corps of 95 community members giving us feedback, after all, so there's been a lot of vetting of this from both newer and experienced players. The main benefits of these particular changes are simplicity, transparency-to-the-player, and internal accuracy in outlier situations. •As part of the new combat model, the old concept of "shields" (as distinct from "force fields") has been removed, and the random-hit-chance and range-related components of the hit chance calculations are gone. In place of this is a new, simpler, and far better "armor" system that affects damage output instead of hit chance. •One key simplification in this new version is the removal of all the internal ship-specific damage multipliers. In their place, we now have a small number of new "hull types" and ships get visible bonuses against them. This also removes the "Strong Vs and Weak Vs" display in favor of both the raw hull attack multipliers display and a new Reference tab when really detailed data is needed (presumably not often). •Following on with those massive changes, every last ship in the game has been rebalanced to a heavy degree, sometimes pretty much completely
