Hey guys! This week we launched the opt-in for the 2.65 update which when released, will wrap us up for the year.
Today I'm teasing some more info about the upcoming DLC and I'd like to send out best wishes to everyone for the holiday season!
Part of the upcoming DLC will include a number of Scenarios and Skirmish/Multiplayer maps which I've been working on for the last two months. Many of the maps are in response to types that we currently lack such as symmetrical team-oriented 5v5/6v6/7v7. Here's Caldera, a Large 6v6 map!
The Scenarios face the players up against unique situations and battles unlike any of the existing campaign and scenario missions. In the Ascension Scenario, for example, the player needs to build up and prepare for the Experimental Eye of Darkness which has insane damage and health and is sent out against the player after a delay. Here's a sneak peak of what that looks nice!
I missed these just in time for last Dev Journal, but I want to extend another shout out to CenturianMudPig who has been doing some excellent beginner guides. These may be useful for yourself, or when introducing new players to the game to get them up to speed.

So that's it from us for 2017! Stardock will be closed over Christmas for a week, but I'll be hanging about on the Ashes Discord as always. Thanks to everyone for what's been an incredible year, working on a project like Ashes has been a great experience!
