There are some crackers to play in our list of PC’s best strategy games while you wait.
As the descendants of humanity, the Post-Human Coalition, or their relentless AI enemy, the Substrate, you’ll take part in warfare on an unprecedented scale as the factions battle it out for the galaxy’s most valuable resource, Turinium.
“With Ashes of the Singularity, we want to present players with a game that lets them feel like they are fighting a planetary war, not just a battle,” said CEO and president of Stardock, Brad Wardell.
“We are not looking to reinvent the RTS,” said Wardell. “Our goal is to introduce a new generation of gamers to the general awesomeness of real-time strategy gaming. That means showing how well non-cheating computer players can perform in single-player as well as making it easy to get multiplayer games going.”
The originality comes from the scale, which is a thing that’s only really possible because of modern tech advances. Ashes of the Singularityis powered by the Nitrous 3D engine whose 64-bit, multi-core foundation supports DirectX 11, DirectX 12 and multiple GPUs.
This engine is responsible for the game’s massive scope, and allows you to rally up various armies and wage multiple wars across different continents simultaneously.
The Early Access incarnation of Ashes of the Singularity is currently priced at £39.99.
