Planetary Annihilation goes for real-time strategy on a grand scale: interplanetary combat with huge armies and world-destroying super weapons are its MO. One thing it was missing was giant robots—until today. Uber Entertainment's big RTS gets bigger with its first expansion, Planetary Annihilation: Titans, complete with giant freakin' robots.
Planetary Annihilation: Titans adds five "Titan-class super units" like the ones seen towering over the rest of the armies in the above video. Sixteen new units are added to the standard armies, as well. Titans' single-player campaign builds on the original's procedurally-generated planets, and Uber promises that every play-through will be different. The expansion's multi-player modes are the same as the original: one-on-one ladder, team co-op, and up-to-10-player free-for-all.
All of the multi-player and single-player game modes will gain multi-level terrain in Titans, which rights one of the wrongs from the base game. The planets don't look so darn flat in the trailer.
Uber Entertainment says that Titans is a standalone expansion, but from what I can tell from its Steam listing, the $40 price includes the base game along with the expansion. If you already own the base game, Titans' price drops to $10. Either way, the expansion is available now. Thanks to TR reader tfp for tipping us off.
