Planetary Annihilation, the upcoming large-scale real-time strategy game from Super Monday Night Combat developer Uber Entertainment, will launch a beta later this month. The final retail release is planned for this December on PC.

The Kickstarter update post announcing the beta promises interplanetary war, colonization and planetary destruction will be featured. There are two ways to gain access to the beta, either by pre-ordering the Planetary Annihilation "Warfare" edition or above through the Uber store, or by having pledged $40 to the Kickstarter campaign.

Planetary Annihilation hit Kickstarter on August 15 with the hopes of achieving $900,000 to finance the PC RTS. The pledge drive was a success and earned Uber Entertainment $2.2 million in total to make the game.
