Ashes is a good game and has great potential. It feels like Sins of a Solar Empire and Supreme Commander mixed together

They have long term plans to add more gameplay mechanics and content

From the people who brought you Sins of a Solar Empire comes a new massive-scale real time strategy game. The human race is under assault by a race of machines who seek nothing short of total annihilation.

Did you pick it up Skykid? Any opinions if you did?

Good find, heat added

I thought somebody said if you buy the version before this, for a few quid you get this one free?

oooh not sure if i like RTS anymore as too old. now into turn based games like xcom, panzer tactics over company of heroes. i used to love red alert

but the geek in me wants to try as i have an RX 470 and an old GTX 750ti and I hear this is the game that supports 2 x graphics cards from different manufacturers. I am using an E5620 quad core with hyperthreading (so eight cores) and believe DX12 is also supposed to use more cores too?

I've not heard specifically about this but if it's because of the DX12-ness of it then I don't think a 750Ti supports DX12, so I would double check that before you buy

Should be able to play it with a 750ti on low-med settings I'd imaging.

but fair point about whether my other card will support dx12 for dual gpu use...

has the game got a good amount of people playing multiplayer?

I tried to post a deal for this a while back but it was rejected.

You can get this game for around £5 if you find a reseller selling the original "Ashes of the Singularity" key.
Anyone with the original Ashes gets Escalation for free so putting a key in for the original game gives you both

It worked for me, I have been playing for the last week.

Originally the game(s) were separate but the community was divided as people who brought the original felt betrayed by the developers. In order to try and keep people happy Stardock decided that anyone with the original would get a free upgrade. Anyone who had already purchased both got a further upgrade to get all dlc for free...

Bought in during alpha and beta access and find the game utterly drab and boring compared to other RTS games, a case of hype and no content.
