Recently released real-time strategy Ashes of the Singularity confirms Linux and SteamOS port


Ashes of the Singularity, a real-time, multiplayer, strategy, title developed by Oxide Games and Stardock Entertainment, just released for Windows PC a few days ago. Now the developers have confirmed the release of a Linux and SteamOS port. At least when Vulkan is available.

The developers were asked by the Steam Community about a Linux version of the popular new game.

Will there be a GNU/Linux build of the game released at some point?
The engine looks very impressive. Hopefully it will use the Vulkan API too.

Here is the break-down of the title according to the Steam page:

“Take 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, Ashes of the Singularity allows for maps of unprecedented size and details.

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 other players.

Games are won or lost based on your strategy not how fast you can click. Deciding what technologies to research, where to send armies, managing your economy, determining what units to construct are critical for victory.

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 lead to victory.”

For more information about Ashes of the Singularity, check out the Steam Store page, which normally retails for $50 USD, but has a 20% discount until November 5th.
