Ashes of Singularity: Escalation Gets an Update

The massive-scale real-time strategy game, Ashes of Singularity: Escalation, is getting an update and a discount on Feb. 23, 2017.

Stardock Entertainment (the software company behind Ashes of Singularity, Galactic Civilizations and Sins of a Solar Empire) announced today that the expansion to their popular game, Ashes of Singularity, is getting a major update on Steam. Stardock also said that in celebration of this update, players wishing to buy Ashes of Singularity: Escalation will receive a 50 per cent discount on the game from Feb. 23 to March. 3, 2017. This is fantastic for anyone wanting to get into the franchise without back-tracking on the price.

Version 2.1 of Ashes of Singularity: Escalation features new maps, rebalances several maps, adds single-player observer mode, unranked matches and an option for disabling supply lines.

“In addition to making some adjustments with AI visibility and balance, we’ve added features that players have been asking for, like the single-player observer mode,” said Derek Paxton, Stardock’s Vice President of Entertainment in a press release. “You can learn how the AI makes decisions by watching it battle during customized games using any settings or parameters you want.”

Ashes of Singularity: Escalation’s 2.1 update comes just after Stardock merged their base game, Ashes of Singularity with the expansion pack, Escalation, into a single title. Stardock even gave all owners of the base game a complimentary copy of Escalation.

Ashes of Singularity: Escalation normally runs for $39.99 on Steam, so anyone wishing to buy the game should get it before the 50 per cent discount ends.”The growing single-player modding community and the extensive multiplayer options convinced us that we needed to combine the Ashes of the Singularity and Escalation communities together,” said Brad Wardell, CEO of Stardock in a press release. “After all, there can only be one singularity.”
