Choose your story in “Inception,” the first split-faction scenario in Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation. A mysterious entity known as Nihilon has returned to wreak havoc on the planet Oneiros and has seized control of some of the Substrate consciousnesses residing there. As the Substrate, you must rescue your corrupted brethren and find out what Nihilon has done - as the PHC, your only concern is neutralizing both threats entirely. Which battle will you fight?
The Inception DLC also adds a new variety of maps perfect for facing down hordes of computer adversaries or engaging online in some brawls with friends.
While the split-scenario is really nice and could be a big contenter for one of the best in the game and adds some replay value, because of sides of the conflict, the meat of this DLC are multiplayer maps, which are all pretty good, maybe except Oneiros, which is better enjoyed in single player rather than in MP, mostly because in MP it feels chaotic and crammed at the same time. Bayern, Brasil and Polska are huge fun though. Overall, this DLC has really solid scenario and 3 incredibly enjoyable multiplayer maps. Considering the price, there is a lot of content really worth it. Recommended if you have friends to play in MP and for one of the best scenarios to date.
