, their real-time strategy game. Those interested can pre-purchase this now at a 20% discount, which also grants immediate access to the beta. This page
has details, screenshots, a sample of the soundtrack, and downloads. Here's word: "The latest addition to AI War is awesome for several reasons highlighted by the arrival of Champion units. With the expansion you can now set a player to the "Champion" role and instead of a home command station and all the usual stuff a player starts with they get a single modular ship. The ship is already massive and poweful [sic] when you start, and can upgrade modules as you progress and gain expereience [sic]."
