It’s happening, people: the robots are here. They are overtaking the game! In today’s update, we introduce Worbital AI and more.

With update #6, you will be able to play single matches against AI, as well as add AI bots to Quickplay matches if you lack players. The bots are not yet available for Custom matches. AI-players will also be replacing human players if those disconnect from a match. Enjoy the company of our new robotic overlords!

In other news, we brought Supremacy back, but with a new name - Chaos. In turn, Alliance is out of the Quickplay menu, but you can still play Custom team matches.

And lastly, Worbital beta is now available for Mac. Though, this early version can be unstable, so prepare for some inconveniences. Regardless, we would greatly appreciate the invaluable feedback from Mac-players.
