First Strike: Classic is a refreshed and optimized version of iconic nuclear war strategy game, with a brand-new AI with new behaviors and a redesigned user interface.

First Strike is a fast-paced real-time strategy game where you play one of the twelve biggest nuclear superpowers of the world from known superpowers like the USA to an upstart hellraiser like North Korea and try to be the last one remaining when the whole world blows to smithereens.

Now the beloved strategy game that sets the Doomsday Clock ticking and puts players fingers on the button of a horrifying nuclear arsenal, is getting a remaster just in time to celebrate the 7-year anniversary of its original release. The new First Strike has been completely rebuilt and now is more stable, more beautiful and has more cunning enemies than ever.

Over the years, the First Strike fan community has requested new content. This remastered version of the game will now serve as the base for future content updates. Those expansions are exclusive to the free version of the game, which are planned to start rolling out in summer 2021.

First Strike has been played by over 11 million players since its release in 2014 in almost every country on Earth. Be it South Sudan, China, the Virgin Islands, the US or Mongolia, there are First Strike players everywhere with only one exception: North Korea.

Key Features:

  • Twelve playable nuclear superpowers - You decide which real-world superpower you play, from the USA to Russia, China or North Korea.
  • Devastating superweapons - Build twelve technologically advanced rockets, from Tridents to the TSAR, unique to each nation.
