Details On The Retail Release Of Planetary Annihilation And An Upcoming Update Tease!
Some of you may have already seen the news this morning, but just in case: we're teaming up with Nordic Games for the retail (read: boxed) distribution of Planetary Annihilation.

In a nutshell, we're making a push to address some of the annoying little issues we've received community feedback about. Nothing says Christmas like a little competitive planet smashing, so we're thrilled to polish the overall experience even more.
Speaking of destruction, our last update added interplanetary nukes. These nukes greatly expand our interplanetary play and we've seen some incredible fights from broadcasters. Fights like this, for example, one are why we're making the game that we are:
We'll be back with more news very shortly. Until then, see you in the lobby, Commanders.
