Planetary Annihilation

Release date:
Sep 05 2014

Colonize solar systems, annihilate homeworlds, and obliterate your foes in epic interplanetary battles with multiple players and thousands of units. Planetary Annihilation takes the RTS to a never-before-seen scale -- and gives players powerful tools to control the action.


  • EPIC MULTIPLAYER: Play with up to ten friends (or enemies) in massive free-for-all and team-based matches.
  • CONTROL A MACHINE OF WAR: Control punishing spacecraft, powerful tanks, and an assortment of other futuristic machines of war in epic battles across entire solar systems.
  • SINGLE-PLAYER GALACTIC WAR: Conquer a dynamic galaxy with procedurally generated content that makes every playthrough different.
  • ADVANCED COMMAND AND CONTROL: With intuitive drags and clicks, seamlessly switch between planets, mine resources, create custom unit formations, or pulverize armies.
  • DYNAMIC PICTURE-IN-PICTURE: View and interact with your units on another planet in a second window as you focus and control the action in your primary view.
  • INSTANT REPLAYS: See in-match recordings in real-time while matches are in progress. See when a battle turned by rewinding the game to any point or check out the entire match after a game ends.
  • SMASH PLANETS: Don’t just win, annihilate! End games with the mother of all weapons: an asteroid on a collision course.
  • BUILT TO MOD: Built to mod: create new units, modes, maps and more. Run your own server with your own custom rulesets.
  • SPECTATE AND BROADCAST: Spectate matches with a suite of incredible viewing options or broadcast with integrated support.
  • NO LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR: Client-server asynchronous technology allows games to offload much of the gameplay heavy lifting to the server, so your game isn’t held back by the slowest machine in your game.
