《奇点灰烬（Ashes of the Singularity）》是Oxide Games, Stardock Entertainment制作的一款即时战略游戏。《奇点灰烬》采用Oxide Games的Nitrous引擎打造，背景设定在遥远的未来，那时人类完全以意识形态存在，人们已经掌握了上帝一样的力量。但是人类发现自己已经处于战争之中，敌人就是一个叫做“Haalee”的具有意识形态的AI，企图推翻人类在宇宙之中的统治地位。
“《奇点灰烬》的宏伟尺度需要我们创造一款全新的3D引擎，”Oxide Games的图形架构设计工程师Dan Baker补充道。“我们想做一款不仅只描绘一场战争的游戏，而是实时还原整个战争，模拟成千上万个独立单位的动作。”
Description: ake command of the resources of an entire world to build up massive armies, research new technologies and annihilate all those who stand in your way in this new, massive-scale real-time strategy game.
With the unparalleled power of the world’s first native 64-bit real-time strategy game engine, Ashes of the Singularity allows for maps of unprecedented size and detail.
Over the course of your war, you will construct thousands of units that have details that are normally reserved for games with only a few active units. Huge, kilometer-long Dreadnoughts can have a half dozen turrets, each with their own firing solutions. Smaller units will intelligently target enemies based on true line of sight physics. That’s right, every unit’s vision is based on line of sight instead of radial fog of war.
A Note: Firewatch is a video game about adults having adult conversations about adult things. If you plan on playing with a younger gamer, that might be good to know going in
While Ashes has a strong multiplayer feature set, it includes what is arguably the most sophisticated AI engine ever devised for a real-time strategy game. Ashes of the Singularity requires a minimum of 4-cores on your CPU. In exchange, you get an AI that can create complex strategies and plays by the same rules as you do, providing a level of challenge never before seen in a single-player RTS.
Compete in ranked games against strangers or set up custom, un-ranked competitive or cooperative games with friends. A worldwide ranking system lets players find where they stand in comparison to others.
Games are won or lost based on your strategy, not how fast you can click. Deciding what technologies to research, where to send armies, how to manage your economy, and what units to construct are critical.
As the conqueror of an entire world, you will be battling on multiple fronts with multiple armies. Scouting your opponent’s strategy, determining their priorities, tracking where they are, and capturing strategically vital resources will lead to victory.
