About This Game

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

Blow up everything, anywhere; dominate with punishing spacecraft, robots, and other futuristic machines of war. Arm asteroids and send them on planet-destroying collision courses. And take over an entire galaxy in a dynamic single-player mode with procedurally generated content. Don’t just win, annihilate!

Key Features Include:


  • Epic Single-Player - Galactic War is a twist on traditional real-time strategy campaigns that has players battling across a dynamic galaxy filled with procedurally-generated content. Every playthrough is different. Annihilation is final.
  • Epic Multiplayer - Play with up to ten friends (or enemies) in massive free-for-all and team-based matches.
  • Spectate - Spectate matches with a suite of incredible viewing options.
  • 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 - View 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.

DON'T BUY THIS GAME, if you buy anything better buy the Titans PA since that basically includes this game.
Also they did a bs move at making the Titans and re-release instead of making it a DLC sort for purchase for the base game and making people buy the game all over again for new features (featured on titans version).

To be honest this is basically normal move by developers now a days but still... ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t move.

Gameplay wise it's a 7/10. a bit laggy when building huge systems and multiple planets and stuff. could be optimized.
As an RTS it's a solid 10/10


But still, Titans is out there so still no point in buying this game.
Developers are a solid 1/10. ♥♥♥♥ em.

I bought this game in early access, full price. I've felt terribly ripped off, because game was nothing like they promised, wasn't working and was terrible at performance.

PA now is a fully working RTS that is fun to play with friends, with few problems (but none of them game breaking).

Developers were called con artists and game've received stigma of being unfinished halfcooked potato, but I don't think that is true anymore. Dev's (and Community) made this game playable and finished.
This is somehow extraordinary, most early accesses get abandoned as fast as people fill the bucket.

PS: Titans should be included in base version of the game imho
PS2: DLC commanders are a joke

Started New Game
Got 5 friends to get the game
Nobody noticed the two Spawn planets were on the same orbit, flying towards eachother
Suddenly sees my anchors get smashed
Watches my force get crushed
Six messages pop up saying "(Commander Name) Has Been Anhilated"
Everyone joins the same discord chat laughing
Everyone accuses eachother of doing this

10/10 Would Crash Planets into eachother again

I'm just getting hang on the control for this adventure, it's not a game that struck out at me straight away but it's growing on me with some frustration during gameplay..

I do like how I can just setup to mine metal and not have to worry about transporting the goods back to my base, it's almost all automated one thing I am not happy with really is the fact that if you want to win, first start a base of operations get some anti-aircraft and cannons on the go to protect the BoO with a few mobile foces like AA tanks and ground forces.. Once that is done just setup six or even 10-12 factories to build air based forced and after that just build, build and build fighter places to ward off other air intercepting forces and protect your own.. Then build air and ground fighting aircraft and send the whole lot in to mince up the other bases.. Simple..

So if you want to win, as ever lots and lots of air fighting components and you'll be sure to win, get their first and you'll win sooner :D

Awesome game :D

I'm really not sure what all the negativity is about here...

Okay, maybe the developers were a bit.... annoying.... making a £29.99 DLC....

I haven't even bought the DLC and this game is still pretty fun. You can have 2 hour games crashing asteroids into planets and basically destroying everthing.... You can have 15 minute games on one planet where you clash armies of bots, tanks, planes, orbitals and boats together.... You can create your own planetary systems, which you can do pretty good stuff with like making planets crash into eachother after a certain amount of time....

Overall, a highly strategic RTS game which, to be honest, is amazing. :)
