Change Log:

Ashes of the Singularity v1.1 adds new units, additional campaign options, new maps & more!

Engaging with our community and hearing what you have to say is really important to us here at Stardock. Over the last couple of weeks since Ashes' release, we have been reading your reviews and applying your comments to updates for the game. v1.1 is ready to go, and so far, we've added:

New Campaign Difficulty Level Selection

Whether you feel like casually cruising through so you can just experience the story, or challenging yourself with the highest difficulty setting, the new options in the campaign will allow you to play the way you want to!

New Difficulty Levels for AI

To further service our players, we've added "Novice" and "Intermediate" difficultly levels for AI opponents. Now, you'll be able to experience a wider variety of challenge when you play against the PC!

New Maps

Expand your single and multiplayer experience on the new maps "Fast & Furious," "Dread Valley," and more.

New Orbital Ability

We added a new PHC orbital ability called “Probing Force” to this update! Using the Orbital Fabricator, you will be able to call down a group of new units called Sentries into battle. The Sentry unit is a tier 1 unit that is a mix between a Brute and an Archer.
