Planetary Annihilation Beta Launches, Is Very Expensive

Planetary Annihilation, Kickstarter mammoth, has launched its pricey beta. To celebrate, there’s a video of a lot of things blowing up. That’s the way.

It doesn’t come cheap, however. To play it in its still unfinished state will cost you an absolutely enormous £40. And that’s despite developers Uber raising $2.2m on Kickstarter, when they only asked for $900,000. Be grateful if you backed it, as you’d have picked up the finished game for $20 (£12.50) or access to this beta for $40 (£25).

So the new beta form is the enormous £40 on Steam‘s Early Access. You can save yourself just under £3 if you buy it via the Uber Store, at $60. Where you can also spend $199 or $250 on it, if you so wish. It’s worth noting that there you can also pick the game up for $40 and get it when it comes out in December (and there are currently no plans to raise that price) – something absolutely not made known via Steam, which gets under my grill.
