Erik Rutins, Director of Product Development at Matrix Games, said “As wargamers, strategy gamers and sci-fi gamers, we’ve been fans of AI War since the original release, which received incredible critical acclaim. When the opportunity arose to bring this to our audience, we had to take it and we highly recommend you give it a try. AI War is a great concept, very well executed that allows you to play at your own speed and your own level of management. AI War offers a great gameplay experience both solo and in co-op multiplayer against a very tough AI. The Alien Bundle is the entire AI War series in one updated package and is the perfect way to jump into what is anything but your usual Sci-Fi strategy game.”
Still on the fence? There’s also a playable demo available so you can get a taste of what it’s like to fend off the AI hordes!
About AI War: Alien Bundle
Humanity has already fought its war against the machines -- and lost. AI death squads stand watch over every planet and every wormhole, the few remaining human settlements are held captive in orbiting bubbles, and the AIs have turned their attention outward, away from the galaxy, to alien threats or opportunities unknown. This inattention is our only hope: a small resistance, too insignificant even to be noticed by the AI central command, has survived. These are the forces you will command!
This is AI War: Alien Bundle, a one-of-a-kind strategy game that plays like an RTS but feels like a 4X, with tower defense and grand strategy bits, too. With limitless replayability, dozens of ship types, and massive battles, AI War: Alien Bundle allows you to test your wits against cunning and unique AI opponents either solo or with up to 8 players in cooperative mode. AI War: Alien Bundle is extremely configurable, so you can set it up to have a slower, more thoughtful, 4X feel, or you can make everything happen blazing fast so that your reflexes are tested. Whether you’re a hardcore wargamer, an RTS addict, 4X lover, or something in between – AI War: Alien Bundle will bring countless hours of space strategy!
