Version 1.45 getting the final touches

We are pretty close on getting version 1.45 of Ashes of the Singularity completed.

A lot of our focus recently has been on unit AI, path finding and beginning to incorporate some of the things we like from Escalation into the base game that makes sense.

Feel free to comment here if you have any specific requests for 1.45 or later.

Reviews

“Large scale armies of course make for large scale battles, which is where Ashes shines.”
9/10 – PCGamesN

“If you want thousands of units on a sweeping board, Ashes of the Singularity will serve you well.”
9/10 – Gameranx

“One of those games that comes along every few years and slaps us in the face to remind us what the word “strategy” means.”
IGN

Hardware Requirements Notice

If you like strategy games, especially real-time strategy games, you will probably like Ashes of the Singularity. However, make sure your video card has 2GB of video memory (that means a recent AMD or NVIDIA video card). As the Steam reviews often make clear, many users are paying attention to that requirement and those negative reviews end up hurting everyone.

The reason we require 2GB of video memory is that the terrain supports true line of sight. The mountains and valleys and hills and such aren't just eye candy. You can hide armies behind mountains, move units on top of hills and gain those benefits but that resolution also requires video memory. Thanks for listening!

About This Game

The year is 2178 and humanity has begun to expand to new worlds. Now, they are confronted by a new threat called "The Substrate" that seeks the annihilation of the entire human race. As a rising power of the Post-Human Coalition, it is up to you to save humanity's future by beating back the Substrate menace.

Wage a War Across an Entire World

With the unparalleled power of the world's first native 64-bit real-time strategy game engine, Ashes of the Singularity allows for maps of unprecedented size and detail.

Over the course of your war, you will upgrade your technology, build orbitals, construct thousands of units and conquer the regions of the world in an effort to annihilate all opposition.

Command Unique Units, Factions, Orbitals, and Abilities

Play as the Post Human Coalition or their eternal foes, the Substrate as you battle for control of the galaxy planet by planet. Each side has their own unique array of abilities, units, and research options, allowing you a variety of choices while you build your armies.

Experience a powerful, Non-Cheating AI Engine

While Ashes has a strong multiplayer feature set, its single player skirmishes and scenarios pit you up against what is arguably the most sophisticated AI ever seen in a real-time strategy game. With dozens of included worlds to choose from as your sandbox, Ashes of the Singularity has been designed as a single-player game with unrivaled replayability.

Battle with Friends in Multiplayer Matches

Compete in ranked games against strangers or set up custom, un-ranked competitive or cooperative games with friends. Use our worldwide system to find where you stand in comparison to others and match up to players of like skill based on your numerical rankings.

Claim Victory with Strategy, not Speed

Games are won or lost based on your strategy, not how fast you can click. Deciding what technologies to research, where to send armies, how to manage your economy, and what units to construct are critical.

As the conqueror of an entire world, you will be battling on multiple fronts with multiple armies. Scouting your opponent's strategy, determining their priorities, tracking where they are, and capturing strategically vital resources will lead to victory.

Encounter Mysterious New Threats in Ascendancy Wars

In the year 2178, humanity has begun to evolve into god-like Post-Humans and are now expanding out into the galaxy. Learn more about how the Post-Human Coalition formed and what mysterious threats they encounter as they explore new worlds in this exciting campaign mode. Try the "scenarios" mode and take on unique challenges like "King of the Hill," a scenario that pits you against an endless onslaught of enemies to see just how long you can survive.
