Ashes Of The Singularity

Ashes of The Singularity

Ashes of the Singularity Turtle Wars DLC Adds New Scenarios, Maps, and More. This is a press release with a few Chris Jones additions!

Planetary Warfare on a Massive Scale!

IGN Says: “One of those games that comes along every few years and slaps us in the face to remind us what the word “strategy” means.”

Plymouth, MI. – June 30, 2016 – Stardock has released the Turtle Wars DLC for Ashes of the Singularity. With new single player scenarios focused around the player building up defenses against seemingly impossible odds and additional new maps to keep multiplayer matches fresh, this update brings challenges for players of all levels.

The Turtle Wars DLC pack contains scenarios such as “Implosion”, “Mountaintop”, and more, plus new maps that offer a wider array of options for multiplayer matches.

“Our goal is to continue to create a variety of maps with open possibilities,” said CEO and President of Stardock, Brad Wardell. “Some of these new maps are ideal for things like a 2v1 match, even a 4v1. We’ve also made sure to include a large-sized 1v1 skirmish map, which will encourage players to build much bigger armies for more epic battles.”

The new scenarios in Turtle Wars bring the focus to having the player build up and maintain their defenses against mounting enemy pressure. In the “Eruption” scenario, the player has the command of a single Hyperion Dreadnought and a handful of defensive structures and must somehow hold out against enemy siege while trying to turn the tides of battle.

In another scenario, “Turtle Wars,” the player is faced with several indestructible factories that are mass producing swarms of frigates. In order to win, they must hold off against the enemy and take control of the factories before the rest of the army makes it through the mountains to finish them off. Kinda cool, huh?

“These new scenarios add a different type of challenge and call upon a certain playstyle,” said Wardell. “We know that players will enjoy trying something new and then comparing their scenario scores against others’ in our Hall of Fame.”

The Turtle Wars DLC is now available for purchase on Steam or through Stardock.

“I am delighted to have the chance to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Trek with my fellow captains by providing our voices to STAR TREK: Legacy,” said Shatner. “Bethesda Softworks has done an excellent job in creating an exciting game that stays true to Star Trek’s roots and accurately incorporates elements from each series.”

STAR TREK: Legacy is in development for both the Xbox 360™ videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC. STAR TREK: Legacy is scheduled to launch this fall under license from CBS Consumer Products. The STAR TREK franchise, which debuted with the Original Series in 1966, will celebrate its 40th anniversary this fall.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have the five actors who portrayed the STAR TREK captains take part in this project,” said Todd Vaughn, vice president of development, Bethesda Softworks. “Their participation, especially since it takes place during the series’ 40th anniversary, will add to the fun and excitement of the game and emphasizes our commitment to provide fans with the most authentic STAR TREK experience possible.”
