Right from the start, the universe of AI War has always included a few alien craft. However, it wasn't until each of the first three expansions were released that the three alien races from AI War were fully explored: from the ancient, venerable Zenith; to the short-lived, vicious Neinzul; to the massive Spire.
These first expansions represent something of a watershed for AI War, because these are the only expansions that will be focused on individual alien races. Future expansions to the game will focus on other aspects of the AI War universe, as well as pulling in a few ships here and there from all three of the races.
That makes these three something of a matched set; and for the first time ever, we're bundling them all together with the base game at more than a 30% discount off their combined total price. The release of this bundle also coincides with the two-year anniversary of AI War's public debut. Two years later and AI War is more popular than ever, with more expansions planned. We couldn't be more grateful for the support of our players!
As of today, we have so far raised and donated $44,597.02 for Child's Play! That's $10,102.82 since our last update, all of which has already gone directly to the charity. Our AI War: Children of Neinzul donation goal was originally $14,000.00, and in the end we were able to reach 317% of that goal.
More About AI War: Children of Neinzul and Child's Play
The staff at Arcen has long admired the work done by Child's Play, and was ecstatic to be able to contribute to the cause between 2010 and 2013. Our goal for 2010 was to raise $14,000.00 USD for Child's Play, but over the course of the charity period, we raised and donated $44,597.02!
The charity period has now ended for that expansion, but we're extremely proud of what we've been able to accomplish with your help during that period. We hope to be able to be able to run our own direct charity support programs again in the future, but for now we're indirectly supporting other causes like Rizeup Gaming and similar via product donations.
