The most devious and acclaimed artificial intelligence in strategy gaming continues to evolve in the last year. Including many major updates coming together to the recent Paradigm Shift. AI War 2: Zenith Onslaught adds to the grand strategy RTS hybrid that reverses many of the aspects of both genres. Take territory without attracting attention or build your empire with care. Then adapt to an ever evolving galactic battleground.
AI War 2: Zenith Onslaught Trailer
The AI War 2: Zenith Onslaught expansion is absolutely full of features. From “small” details like powerful new elite Cruisers that you can put in a new slot in your fleets. All the way up to galaxy spanning empires like the Dark Zenith and the Zenith Architrave. This expansion is full of new tools to use and new foes to best. Wormhole Borers let certain AIs alter the map topology. While Nomad Planets alter the map topology on their own as they roam around. The Zenith Miners consume entire planets, and Golem variants abound. There are also options to make some of the new factions your allies. So you can take on the AI together.
Multiplayer co-op has been feature complete for months. But is still undergoing testing. The original intent was a same day launch with AI War 2: Zenith Onslaught. However, the novel heavily multithreaded shared simulation approach requires more time to test. Please feel free to join in and share any feedback you have! The multiplayer in this game needs some novel design work that Arcen Games hope can be useful to other developers. Once they are past the last of the bugs. The team hopes to present its findings so that other games in other genres can benefit. While making self correcting mod safe multi-threaded complex simulations of arbitrarily large sizes a reality. The developer expects no more than 1-2 more months of MP beta. Since the bug count falls with weekly updates.
The new expansion AI War 2: Zenith Onslaught releases on Steam priced at $9.99 USD. Along with a 10% discount until May 25th. While continuing support for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC.
