Planetary Annihilation update switches on offline LAN

Planetary Annihilation update LAN Uber Entertainment

LAN’s been a staple of RTS games since Warcraft. Beating your friends over the web is fine but nothing beats seeing their panic as your troops overwhelm their poorly built defenses. Till now Planetary Annihilation’s missed that joy.

However, this week sees the launch of offline LAN multiplayer.

“We’re happy to announce the release of the offline server. Coming in an update this Thursday (October 9), offline server allows you to take over the galaxy in Galactic War without connecting to the Internet,” write Uber Entertainment in a blog post. “You can also battle against your frenemies or the AI over a LAN.”

Uber are already Kickstarting another game, Human Resources, so this update goes some way to show the team have plans to continue support for Planetary Annihilation. This is a relief as Fraser was none too impressed with what Uber released in September.

The next task on Uber’s list is “the ability to run your own online servers as well.” Though, they gave no date for this update, only saying that it’s “down the road.”

It was probably a mistake of them to announce a new Kickstarter without delivering on everything they promised last time first.
