Take command of an entire world’s resources to build up massive armies, research new technologies, and annihilate all those who stand in your way! This new, massive-scale real-time strategy game will have you managing vast armies and fighting a war on multiple fronts against your enemies.
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: Escalation allows for maps of unprecedented size and detail. Huge map sizes can house over a dozen players at once and are perfect for a "comp stomp" or a chaotic free-for-all. Over the course of your war, you will upgrade your buildings and 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.
Manage your Armies Globally
The global view feature lets you use your mouse wheel to zoom out to exercise greater control over your armies. Easily see the entire battlefield and control large groups of units effectively.
Bolster Your Defenses
Surprise your enemies with upgraded, fortified defenses to keep your Nexus safe and back your armies up in the midst of intense battles.
Experience a powerful, Non-Cheating AI Engine
Escalation's single player skirmishes and scenarios pit you up against what is arguably the most sophisticated AI ever seen in a real-time strategy game.
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.
