Planetary Annihilation and Planetary Annihilation: TITANS are going through a bit of change right now, as they're moving from Uber Entertainment to the new Planetary Annihilation Inc.

In my original post talking about this change and how PA is essentially being revived, I mentioned how having two seperate games was fracturing the community so I'm pretty pleased to see them make a step to address this. Planetary Annihilation is no longer for sale on Steam, with only new players now seeing Planetary Annihilation: TITANS and the upgrade to TITANS will stay as a permanent 90% discount.

Later this month, they're planning a new PTE (Public Test Environment) build which is essentially an opt-in beta for people to test features. See their announcement here.

Really exciting to see the game get a renewed focus. Hopefully they can push it forwards to revive the playerbase, if done right they could really make something of it again. I like everything they've talked about so far, including their recent update on getting more multithreading in. 

If you don't own it, Planetary Annihilation: TITANS is actually 80% off on Humble Store right now.

I thought they removed it from sale back when they first released TITANS?

They kinda messed it all up, but I'm glad they finally done it properly. What they're doing now, is what they should have done from the beginning.

It worked flawlessly for me last time I played. Never really had any issues with the game.

Yeah they made a right hash of it at the time but hopefully they can get back on track with this as it is great game despite the problems.

I can't agree. I paid for the original game and after Titans was released I was left with abandoned version of the game. The problem is that it isn't running well on my rig and I doubt today for me it is worth to pay even 10 percent of original price. And I believe this 90 percent discount will vanish and when I upgrade hardware, I will be forced to pay whole price. But let's see how it goes.

Wasn't abandoned at all. Has been updated constantly. Their latest announcement linked in the article even says PA classic will get the update.

No you weren't, PA has always continued to be the base of Titans, which is just PA with a DLC. That DLC can be deactivated by owners in game and that allows online play between PA and Titans owners. I own Titans and half the time have the Titans DLC turned off to change up the gameplay.

Oh, is THAT the problem? When did you last try it, the game including the base PA has had performance improvements post Titans launch, and it looks like they are trying to improve performance even more. If you bought a game you can't run, that's on you.

wojtek88And I believe this 90 percent discount will vanish and when I upgrade hardware, I will be forced to pay whole price.

That's absurd, and no one is forcing you to buy anything.

Thanks for mentioning that upgrade discount, I had Planetary Annihilation from a while back and have now upgraded it to Titans.
