It turns out that war can definitely change, as long as its battle began as a Steam Early Access project. Uber Entertainment has announced the single-player campaign for its Kickstarter-funded strategy title Planetary Annihilation is now available as a free update via Steam. The campaign, titled Galactic War, puts players in the space boots of "a reawakened Commander with a limited tech tree."
Galactic War's real-time engagements take place on the game's procedurally-generated planetary systems, with randomized technology drops, maps, unique abilities and perks "to make each playthrough feel different."
"Rediscover, rebuild, and take control. Play as a reawakened Commander, scour the stars for technology, and annihilate enemy Commanders to secure the galaxy," a press release noted, flying in the face of everything Ron Perlman ever told us.
Planetary Annihilation earned over $2 million in its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, far surpassing the game's $900,000 goal. The game is available on Steam Early Access for $50 and, until now, has been a dedicated multiplayer experience.
