If you decide to pre-order Ashes of the Singularity you'll receive 20% off, priced at $39.99. The early version of the game will include intelligent AI for the single-player side of the game, while you can enjoy the multiplayer online. AotS is the first game to include DX12 support, but it's also the first RTS to be 64-bit, while the Nitrous engine that powers the game uses Object Space Rendering. OSR is a technique for realistic lighting and shading that we usually see in movies, and not games.
