Gaming Trend posted their review of Ashes: Escalation and gives it a 90/100!

"Well beyond simple DLC, Escalation polishes every aspect of the base game. The campaign is excellent, and the expansion of defensive and upgradeable structures helps ease in new players."

IGN has their review of Ashes: Escalation up and gives it an 8.1 /10!

"Escalation succeeds at making Ashes of the Singularity a bigger, better, sleeker RTS that allows you to play its great new content alongside just about everything from the base game (including the lacklustre original campaign missions)."

When we released Ashes, we got a lot of feedback that the campaign was too hard (when it was first released). We want to be reall...

"Escalation will expand the backstory of the Substrate, an enemy faction dedicated to the absolute annihilation of humanity, through two new campaigns that will give players the option of controlling either side. The original campaign will also be "fleshed out further based on the game's background lore, " and new maps for both single-player and multiplayer modes will be much large...

Hey guys.

Wanted to get some feedback from you as to whether you think this would be a good idea or not.

They'd only be able to play...

Season 2 has been delayed until the end of this month so that we can get in contact with the finalists.  That gives us a bit more time to get the observer mode feature in and prep for Season 2 balance changes.

 

Below, in no particular order, are some of the upcoming balance changes:

T1 units are now slightly fasterPHC Athena is somewhat slowerPHC Brute squad size reduced from 6 to 5, firepower and HP on each unit substantially increasedPHC Falcon Flak Cannon fir...
