Nordic Games and Uber Entertainment were going to announce one of those taxi startups, but sending suited Scandinavians around the world to deliver new games turned out to be WAY too expensive. Who knew! Instead, the two gaming giants are announcing an exciting partnership to bring the retail version of Planetary Annihilation to market, as well as a non-exclusive partnership to handle the online release.
Planetary Annihilation takes real-time strategy to a planetary scale. Players colonise solar systems, smash entire worlds, and obliterate foes in epic battles with multiple players and thousands of units.

“It’s a busy time for Nordic Games, especially as we’ve just finished buying all these black cars,” said Klemens Kreuzer, Managing Director at Nordic Games, wearing a grey three-piece. “We’re all dressing much better and we’re bringing a legendary RTS franchise to players around the world with some very special retail SKUs for the hardcore fan.”
“Nordic Games is helping us deliver the next-generation of real-time strategy gaming to our Kickstarter backers and global fan base,” said Jon Mavor, CTO at Uber Entertainment, not wearing a suit at all. “We can’t wait to show the press and fans what we’ve put together, it’s a very exciting time to be a part of Uber Entertainment. I should clarify we’re not THAT Uber. Nice suits, though.”
Planetary Annihilation will have single-player, as well as multiplayer modes for up to 40 players. Players will be able to go head-to-head against each other and create massive free-for-all team based wars that can be waged across the galaxy.
Planetary Annihilation will be available through retail stores and digitally when it’s done.
