If you’re one of the 44,000 backers of Planetary Annihilation on Kickstarter, and you spent $90 or more, then you’ll probably already know that access to the alpha program begins as soon as next week, on June 7.
Alpha access will run until the end of August, whereupon the beta will kick off and run until the end of November. Worldwide launch is expect in December of this year.
Uber Entertainment have moved to reassure Steam-haters that they don’t have to use Steam to access the alpha, saying “Steam access is a convenience for some people who prefer to keep all their game keys in one place. If you wish to move your key to Steam, you’ll be able to once the game is live on Steam. If you wish to continue to simply play though our own service UberNet, you’ll be able to.”
“No action is needed at this time for Steam access. We’ll send information once Steam keys are available for use. It also means it’s our first digital distribution platform besides our own, which means another way for the community to grow further and bring in more players.”
