Ashes of the Singularity merges with Escalation expandalone

Stardock's standalone RTS expansion Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation [official site] is no longer an expandalone. Three months after launching Escalation, Stardock have rolled the original Ashes of the Singularity and Escalation into one game and pulled the original from sale. Having them separate was splitting the community, Stardock say. Better to realise that late than never. If you owned either of 'em, hooray! You…

Ashes Of The Singularity: Escalation Expandalone Is Out

Stardock and Oxide's Ashes of the Singularity did a lot of things right in its original April 2016 release. It was a decent traditional RTS experience at its core despite some niggling faults here and there. Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation [official site] is a meaty standalone expansion that rectifies both technical and gameplay issues alike. It also bolsters the unit count and makes everything bigger. Insert double entendre here.

Megawar! Ashes Of The Singularity Properly Released

Oxide and Stardock have properly launched their sci-fi RTS Ashes of the Singularity [official site], after five months on Steam Early Access and a few more before that in a paid 'Founder's Program'. It is, I'll explain for those who missed the gentle murmuring or Alec's impressions of an early version, a Total Annihilation sort of an RTS with hundreds, even thousands, of units romping…

Feature: But what makes it special?

Ashes Of The Singularity Interview: “It’s Total Annihilation Meets Company of Heroes Meets Kohan”

Ashes of the Singularity [official site] can let you build, control, and display thousands of units in the course of a single battle, but that enormous scale is in some ways an attempt to make manifest the technical progress that Oxide and Stardock's 64-bit, DirectX 12 RTS represents. There are a lot of things happening under the hood that Stardock's Brad Wardell is happy to…

Impressions: Spiritual Supreme Commander Sequel Ashes Of The Singularity

There are this many things on my screen: lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots. And most…

Ashes Of The Singularity Joins Early Access Oct 22nd

Ashes of the Singularity [official site] is best described as one of two things: Stardock doing a land-based version of Sins of a Solar Empire; or Stardock doing their own take on Supreme Commander's formula. That is to say, it's an RTS that operates on a vast scale. You'll be have more methods to see a part of that bigness when it hits Steam Early…

Ashes Of The Singularity Looks Beautiful (And Expensive)

Footage of the so-recently-announced-we've-not-yet-covered-it Ashes of the Singularity [official site] has emerged from GDC and gosh, does it look impressive. Ashes of the Singularity is a forthcoming RTS from Oxide Games. It's apparently aiming to wow us in the same way that Supreme Commander did all the way back in 2007: with impressive scale and gorgeous sci-fi warporn.

All The Spaceships: Incredible (& Free) Star Swarm Demo

Okay, okay. God. OK. I will finally consider upgrading my processor after five years of this Core i7 920 being just fine. Between Steam Home Streaming needing to encode video eversoquickly and now Oxide/Stardock's Star Swarm offering me the awesome sight of several thousand on-screen spaceships, I am ready to accept that my PC's futureproofed days might at last be behind it. Fasterfasterfaster. Star Swarm…

See A 10,000-Ship Battle In Oxide’s Insane New Engine

The Stardock-funded 64-bit Nitrous Engine was the talk of the shininess-obsessed town during CES - well, when everyone wasn't yammering endlessly about Steam Machines and Oculus Rift, anyway. The engine is being created by a small company called Oxide, and it's focused on strategy games, which aren't dead despite being the new adventure games in terms of how often everyone tries to shove them into…
