I believe I read somewhere that the November release won't include the AI and that the AI will be released in the future for an added cost. I looked, but can't find where I read it, now.
Will the developers release separate patches for the non-AI AND AI versions, or will the patches work for both, or will the non-AI version become discontinued and not supported?
Sorry if this has already been answered somewhere.
Thanks in advance.
Let's assign them numbers: Version 1, without the AI Opponent; Version 2 includes the AIO.
Prior to version 2, all patches will be for version 1. Nothing confusing there.
Once version 2 is available, version 1 will no longer be sold. So, all patches after version 2 is available will be for version 2.
Since the availability of version 2 is likely to be many months after version 1's initial release that shouldn't be a problem for early purchasers of the version 1. But you are quite right that there will be a point in time, (shortly before version 2 become available) where purchasing version 1 might mean you wouldn't get any new patches - since they would only work for version 2.
I guess the customer would have to decide if he is comfortable with that or not. If 'not', then he could upgrade to version 2 at whatever the incremental cost between the two versions turns out to be.
EDIT: I sincerely hope that I am not still patching version 1 shortly before version 2's release date.
