Ashes of the Singularity, the massive real-time strategy game from Stardock Entertainment just got a new Core Worlds DLC.
Available now and ready to expand your empire on PC, the latest addition to Ashes of the Singularity Escalation is a brand new DLC and version update. The newest maps might come in at just a few dollars but they add new warzones based on real-world geographic designs and distribute resources to offset the geographical disadvantages across each battlefield. All 5 of the new designs come with objectives for 2 – 6 players, with a balance of resources and tactical advantage that are built to challenge a commander to manage units so that they are not simply bottlenecked or steamrolled into submission. The extra add ins that come with the new DLC include:
- Dubola: A medium map for up to 6 players that features plenty of resource deposits.
- Freising: A small map for up to 4 players with plenty of choke points to leverage for strategic advantage.
- Gibraltar: A small map for 2 players with a single Turinium reactor to fight over.
- Jigsaw: A small, close-quarters map for up to 4 players with winding combat paths.
- Nantes: A medium map for up to 6 players where each base starts on unique terrain.
The new map isn’t all that players loading up Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation can expect. Anybody who has been away from the battlefield for a while will notice some improvements as part of the v3.1 update. Landing alongside the Core Worlds DLC, the new v3.1 update should seriously reduce load times and improves combat balance and visuals, meaning more on-screen mayhem for your money.
“This update makes significant improvements in performance,” said Stardock CEO Brad Wardell. “We increased the number of CPU cores that can simultaneously interact with the GPU from 8 to 16 which should translate to smoother performance when thousands of units are on screen.”
Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation is the newest upgraded iteration of the iconic RTS Ashes of Singularity, where a post-human coalition battles against the overwhelming power of an AI substrate bent on wiping out everything that stands against it. If you’re gearing up for another shot at victory then Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation is available on Steam or Stardock for $29.99, while the new Core Worlds DLC will set you back $2.99 / £2.09 or local equivalent.
