New Update!

Posted by Planetary Annihilation Inc (Creator)

A new Commander! Nastier AI! Cheaper engines! A tutorial! The latest update to Planetary Annihilation adds a ton of new features. Also, we've included a lot of cool optimizations and tweaks, in addition to balance changes. There's a lot in this thing.

We've listed the full patch notes available in our forums or the client. Here's a quick rundown of what we've dropped in the latest build, though:

  • Support for HDR, FSAA, and Resolution Scaling - Like visuals? Great! If you want to pump up the graphical volume on the game, you'll need to turn these options on in the Settings menu. 
  • Raptor Commander - You saw this guy during the livestream, right? Raptor Commander is a brand new Commander. Choose it before a match by clicking on the Commander profile picture.
  • Tutorial - Now players can view a little tutorial off of the main menu. This is a work-in-progress, as it'll be updated and enhanced down the line.
  • Smarter AI - The AI is now even more evil. Oh! It can also launch nukes. Have fun with that.
  • Cheaper Delta V Engines - This is one of the many balance changes we've made. Basically, Delta V Engines are now a 1/3 cheaper than what they were. Have fun smashing planets!

Enjoy! And look forward to more many more updates in the near future. Again, here are the full patch notes

      Is there an updated release date for the "non-beta" version?

      You can Upgrade an existing 20$ tier pre-order in the Uber Store:
      It will be 20$ if you have the 20$ tier.

      Believe they're talking about the $20 tier, since that's the finished game release. I could see someone thinking a Steam release (even early access) could be considered a 'release'. However, it does say 'finished' in the tier.

      Anyway, has there been any word on when the finished game will be released?

      Yeah, they aren't giving out steam keys, they gave out keys linked to their site, with the option of converting them into steam keys.

      What the hell are you guys talking about? The Beta is out. That's what it says, right on the Steam entry that you're complaining about. Did you back this at a level that should provide the Beta? If so, then you have a Steam Key. If you didn't, then you don't magically get one because you're impatient and you want one.

      Not to worry, Stephen Staver and nadeem! You clearly missed the announcement, but you can convert your regular beta keys to Steam keys through Ubernet!

      How do I know this, you ask? Because I did it myself of course!

      Don't forget, FAQs are your friend:

      Check your email, or log into your Uber account. Keys for the beta access were issued a few weeks ago, I've got mine.

      I'm disappointed that the game has been released (early access or not. It has been released) yet we haven't been given steam keys yet.
