Matrix Games, Slitherine (www.slitherine.com), and Arcen Games (www.arcengames.com) thrilled to announce that AI War: Alien Bundle is now available for purchase at the Matrix Games Online Store. The Alien Bundle version of AI War contains the original AI War: Fleet Command base game in addition to the three other expansions: The Zenith Remnant, Children of Neinzul, and Light of the Spire.

To mark the release of this exciting and innovative real time strategy game, Matrix is running a two week sale on AI War: Alien Bundle so gamers can pick up the game for $19.99 (digital download), or $10 (33%) off of the regular price for the digital download version. That’s the lowest price you’ll find for all four critically acclaimed titles so there’s never been a better time to try AI War!

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!

The AI War: Alien Bundle includes the base game, AI War: Fleet Command, in addition to its three expansions, AI War: The Zenith Remnant, AI War: Children of Neinzul, AI War: Light of the Spire.


  • Over 600 ship types including smaller fleet ships, massive starships, fixed turrets, and specialty ships.
  • A variety of minor human and alien factions which can help or hinder the player and provide additional objectives and flavor.
  • Over 50 unique AI types to battle against including entrenched homeworlder, vicious raider, mine enthusiast, and others
  • 54 "bonus" ship classes (4-5 ships in each), many with unique abilities like cloaking, teleporting, multi-shot, leeching, and much more.
  • Tons of other specialty ships that can be built or captured, such as the golems, spirecraft, fortresses, ion cannons, and more.
  • Several different map styles to dynamically generate campaign maps on.
  • Nearly three dozen unique music tracks
  • 234 local achievements to strive for
  • A long list of cheats and mod commands to allow for tinkering and customization while playing
  • Head to the AI War Wiki for a more complete list of features.

His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country

The Balfour Declaration, November 2nd 1917

Never a wargame has depicted in such fine detail one the most controversial parts of contemporary history. The proclamation of the Israeli state in 1948 and the US recognizing the state in that exact same day, opens up over four decades of conflicts, key battles, struggles and hostilities. This was also the time of landmark progression and evolution of tactics and weapons systems, where the weapons of NATO and the WARSAW PACT were tested on the battlefields. 

The Middle East is on fire!
