AI War 1.003 Released (Free DLC)
Arcen Games is pleased to announce the release of AI War: Fleet Command version 1.003. You can download a trial version of the game, as well as purchase a license key to unlock the full version. If you already have the game or demo installed, just hit "Check For Updates" inside the game to get the latest patch.
More Free DLC: Two new missiles are now available at your Missile Silos. The Lightning Missile (shown right) is a comparably inexpensive missile that heavily damages all nearby ships when detonated. Sending a swarm of three or four of these is a great way to take out a large group of tough enemy ships (even core or starships).
The second new unit is the Armored Missile, now the most expensive unit in the game. It basically works like a Lightning Missile except that it has a smaller area of effect, and it is so heavily armored as to be all but indestructible. This allows you to do precision strikes deep into enemy territory -- if your gate-raids have been failing on a planet, an Armored Missile might be your one chance for success.
There are also a few other small tweaks, and a fix to a crash bug that was affecting some users in the prior version (the crash occurred when starting new campaigns on a subset of maps, with certain AI types and Simple ship types selected). Most users were not affected by this issue, but we're happy to have this fix out and be back to zero known issues with the game. More free DLC will be heading your way next week (including something other than missiles this time). Enjoy!
