The real time strategy genre has had a pretty solid year, thanks in no small part to Civilization VI. Earlier this year, Ashes of the Singularity released to solid reviews, but it’s about to end the year on a high with a bigger, badder, bolder edition in Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation.
The year is 2178. With humanity expanding out into the wild galaxy, a new threat has awoken that’s out for blood and the total destruction of the human race. With billions of lives at stake, you (as a member of the Post-Human Coalition) must do your best to strategise a defence … or an attack.
Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation promises to up the ante from its original release earlier in the year, with larger maps, more players per map, more units … more of everything, really. Bigger is always better, as they say. It comes to us from the publishers behind Sins of a Solar Empire, one of the most decorated strategy games of the past few years, Stardock Entertainment, and Oxide Games.
Beyond the single player campaign, you can play in ranked or unranked multiplayer modes or you can play against the AI to practise up before going against the big boys.
You can find Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation on Steam for not too much more than the original release, but with all the added content included.
