Ashes DLC - Get it Now
Also available from Steam

Secret Missions DLC Core Features
-------------- NEW UNITS --------------

PHC Atlas

PHC Atlas

This anti-air, anti-drone frigate is an excellent line of defense against Drone Hives. Since it only costs metal and doesn't require radioactives, the Atlas is a less powerful, but inexpensive, alternative to the Apollo cruiser.


Substrate Tormentor

Substrate Tormentor

This indirect fire frigate is capable of saturating an area with artillery shells, causing damage to anything in its radius of attack. Although it lacks accuracy and direct single target damage, the Tormentor is at its most powerful against groups of units rather than structures.


-------------- NEW SCENARIOS --------------

Ascension  |  The Substrate have developed a prototype experimental Eye of Darkness. Defeat it before you’re wiped out.

Battleline  |  Push out strong units, maintain your resource levels, and survive against a large Substrate army.

Carnage [PHC]  |  In the biggest scenario to date, face down 7 enemy Substrate opponents while also helping your 6 allies stay alive long enough for you to claim victory.

Carnage [Substrate]  |  In the biggest scenario to date, face down 7 enemy PHC opponents while also helping your 6 allies stay alive long enough for you to claim victory.


Deadlock  |  Build up your forces and fight off the Substrate before they reach critical mass or overrun you.

Entropy  |  The PHC are attempting to overrun your Substrate base before you gain a critical mass of Turinium. Hold them off.

Incursion  |  The PHC have launched an attack on Substrate territory. There is no one around to help - you will have to defeat them on your own.

Influx  |  Ventrix has tainted the name of the PHC for long enough. Overcome the scarcity of resources and take him out with vicious orbital attacks.
