Expand the war in this massive-scale RTS with more players, more worlds, more units, more everything! Battle on giant maps that can hold over a dozen players, unleash devastating new orbitals and units, and experience the next stage of the PHC and Substrate’s stories in the new campaign.

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! Wage even bigger wars with more than a dozen players at once, raise your armies with new units, uncover questions about the Substrate in new campaign missions, and much more in Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation.

Play as the Post Human Coalition or their eternal foes the Substrate and battle for control of the galaxy. Experience maps of unprecedented size and detail with the unparalleled power of the world’s first native 64-bit RTS engine, Nitrous.

Enjoy the game online with friends in ranked or unranked multiplayer mode or play it by yourself against a powerful non-cheating AI in skirmish or campaign mode. No matter what mode you play, strategy is the key: deciding what technologies to research, where to send your armies, how to manage your economy, and what units to construct are crucial to victory.

The new features of Escalation add to the base game and pave the way for even bigger battles, more diverse strategies, and exciting wars across unique worlds and complex maps. The conflict has escalated, and it’s time to choose a side.
