Requires Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation (base game) to use this DLC
Exciting new scenarios, new units, and huge maps await you in Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation's largest DLC yet! Take on the role of a PHC leader and conquer dangerous missions where the odds are stacked against you, or join with the Substrate to repel your PHC oppressors. Engage your enemies on huge new maps, conquer one of the new scenario challenges, and more.
♣ 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 - 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.
♣ Ascension - The Substrate have developed a prototype experimental Eye of Darkness. Build up your defenses and survive the onslaught of your enemy in order to destroy the weapon before it wipes you out.
♣ Battleline - A large Substrate army looms across the map, just waiting to attack. Your base is established and ready to go; now, you only need to push out strong units, maintain your resource levels, and survive.
♣ Carnage [PHC] - You're ready to make your last stand against the massive Substrate army. In the biggest scenario to date, face down 7 enemy opponents while also helping your 6 allies stay alive long enough for you to claim victory.
♣ Carnage [Substrate] - You're ready to make your last stand against the massive PHC army. In the biggest scenario to date, face down 7 enemy opponents while also helping your 6 allies stay alive long enough for you to claim victory.
♣ Deadlock - The Substrate are making huge pushes toward capturing valuable Turinium mines. Build up your forces and fight off the enemy before they reach critical mass or overrun you.
♣ Entropy - The members of the Post Human Coalition are attempting to overrun your Substrate base before you gain a critical mass of Turinium. Hold them off at all costs.
♣ Incursion - The PHC have launched an attack on Substrate territory. You have the initiative, but there's no one around to help you - 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.
♣ Battleline - Medium 1v1 map
♣ Entropy - Large asymmetric 1v3 map
♣ Osiris 5 - Large 2v2 with limited choke points through the center
♣ Pallavia - Medium 2v2 with limited choke points through the center
♣ Battleline Frenzy - Medium, single lane 4v4 for combined defenses and huge clashes of forces
♣ Galatea - Large symmetrical 10 player map designed for standard 5v5 games

♣ Nashira - Enormous symmetrical 14 player map designed for standard 7v7 games

What I absolutely love about Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation DLCs is that most of them pack a serious punch (especially considering the price), and Secret Missions doesn't disappoint at all. 8 new missions, 8 new maps and all of them are, like always, quality, although not without issues and you're happiness with DLC depends on what you expect. If you like to go full warhead in multiplayer on entire world, you might be disappointed, because there are only 3 maps that are designed for more than 5v5 matches. Those are good, but most of the content here are small maps, with either solo or 2vs2 matches, so if you don't like it crowded, with this DLC you will feel at home. Overall, solid DLC, with some nice missions that will make you busy for some time, but it's all about MP like always, although it is slightly uneven.
