Stardock’s massive-scale real-time strategy game received an update today that reduces load times and improves combat balance and visuals. 

Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation takes place in a post-technological singularity world where sentient AI, known as the Substrate, are in a war of annihilation against the Post-Human Coalition.   

"This update makes significant improvements in performance,” said Stardock CEO Brad Wardell. “We increased the number of CPU cores that can simultaneously interact with the GPU from 8 to 16 which should translate to smoother performance when thousands of units are on screen.” 

The Turtle Wars and Entropy scenarios have been re-balanced in order to implement changes from previous version updates. Additionally, the Nashira map has been adjusted to correct some pathing issues that were previously reported.
