Good news, currently the strategy video game Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation It is being ported at the moment so that in the future we can enjoy it in our GNU / Linux distribution. Now we can find it in Valve's Steam store and other video game sales platforms for other systems, and I hope that soon we can also acquire it for Linux. So a great video game that is added to the list of those interested in the GNU / Linux operating system as a platform for gamers.
The person in charge of this announcement has been the CEO of Stardock Entertainment himself in questions that have been asked through the Steam question and answer thread. It will be worked on intensively during the next 6 months, so a lot of work still for the developers so that we finally have the title available for our preferred platform. In addition, the CEO has said that his strategy is going very well and that having the title for Linux is a dream come true for him.
For those who do not know the title, Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation, it is a strategy title in which you will have to deal with a hostile world, a coalition after the human age that will have to battle for control of the galaxy, with unpredictable maps and all spiced up with a powerful native engine, the first 64-bit RTS, called Nitrous. In addition to this, the game has interesting technical capabilities, as it was one of the first to support Vulkan and it will also do so on Linux, something that is a huge step up from OpenGL.
In short, an addictive and attractive title with very good reviews in which you must perform the best strategies to win the battles, with times of infrastructure construction, technology research, weapons, economic system to manage, etc. In addition to the campaign mode, we will also be able to play in multiplayer mode with other users throughout the rest of the world… From LxA we will continue to be attentive to see when the next announcement of the video game occurs and I hope that we will have it available soon.
