Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation v2.3 is Now Available

Juggernauts and a Brand New Campaign Arrive in v2.3

Dominate the battlefield with two brand new tier 4 warships and experience the fully voiced "Genesis" campaign

Let's take a Quick Look at these Terrifying Tier 4 units:

PHC - The Leonidas
A heavy Dreadnought destroyer, this ship boasts the most powerful weapon ever mounted on a construct. It can tear Dreadnoughts apart and stand up to assaults by using its rail cannons and auto cannons for defense. The high cost is worth all of the heavy firepower of this Juggernaut; when it joins the war, you'd better find a way to deal with it quickly.

Substrate - The Nest of the Queen
This massive warship summons an entire army of frigates to overwhelm the enemy with the support of rapidly-replacing assault and repair drones. The on-board shield generator makes this Juggernaut difficult to kill, marking it as a truly terrifying opponent on the battlefield.

Brand new, fully voiced campaign
In "Genesis," a new entity born of hubris and malice appears to threaten Post-humanity and Substrate alike. You'll get to play as members of both the PHC and the Substrate in this 6-mission storyline that introduces the Juggernaut units and allies old enemies in order to take down the entity that threatens to tear the galaxy apart.

The existing campaign has also received some revisions
You'll have access to ships and orbitals that you weren't able to access before in the older missions, and the maps have been adjusted to make more sense. If you thought that the higher level difficulties were too easy before, get ready for a challenge - the AI has been improved so that it's no walk in the park!

v2.3 is now available and waiting in your Steam client

New "Inception" DLC for Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation is Now Available

Inception DLC features a new type of split scenario, new maps, and more!
Choose your story in the first split-faction scenario in Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation
A mysterious entity known as Nihilon has returned to wreak havoc on the planet Oneiros and has seized control of some of the Substrate consciousnesses residing there. As the Substrate, you must rescue your corrupted brethren and find out what Nihilon has done - as the PHC, your only concern is neutralizing both threats entirely. Which battle will you fight?

The Inception DLC also features four brand new maps perfect for facing down hordes
of computer adversaries or engaging online in some brawls with friends. Details on the maps below:

Oneiros: Wage war with up to 7 players on this unusual planet. With a strong central starting position, resource-rich but vulnerable north and south positions, and four isolated corner starts, this map is great for a tight free-for-all match.

Bayern: This symmetrical Terran map supports up to 3 players. Each starting location is vulnerable from one direction and the massive metal deposits in the middle of the map are enough to lure even your toughest turtler out of isolation.

Brasil: This large 10 player ice map challenges you to defend your starting area while you try to make your way to the astoundingly rich central valley without falling victim to your opponent's attacks.

Polska: Up to 5 players can brawl on this desert map with strategically critical hills that command the passages between regions.

The Inception DLC is available through Stardock or on Steam for just $2.99.

About This Game

The human race has expanded into the galaxy thanks to the wonders of the technological singularity. You have become so powerful that you can manage vast armies across an entire world that provide you with an ever greater galactic empire.

Now, humanity is under assault by a new enemy. Calling themselves the Substrate, they seek to annihilate the human race from existence. You, as an up and coming member of the Post-Human Coalition, must deal with both this new menace as well as renegade humans trying to lay claim to their own worlds.

Play as the Post Human Coalition or their eternal foes the Substrate and battle for control of the galaxy. Experience maps of unprecedented size and detail with the unparalleled power of the world’s first native 64-bit RTS engine, Nitrous.

Enjoy the game online with friends in ranked or unranked multiplayer mode or play it by yourself against a powerful non-cheating AI in skirmish or campaign mode. No matter what mode you play, strategy is the key: deciding what technologies to research, where to send your armies, how to manage your economy, and what units to construct are crucial to victory.

Experience a massive-scale real time strategy game where you wage war across worlds with thousands of units. The conflict has escalated, and it’s time to choose a side.
