Online? Offline? However you want to play Planetary Annihilation, it’s your choice. Starting this week, you can take your battles completely offline.

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. You can also battle against your frenemies or the AI over a LAN.

DRM free offline play has always been an important feature of the Planetary Annihilation experience. Down the road, we’ll be adding the ability to run your own online servers as well.

As we’ve said in the past, launch is simply another phase of development and the beginning of another adventure. Look forward to another update on an exciting in-development feature in the near future.

definitely saving, even though lack of saving can seriously save your♥♥♥♥♥in galactic mode.

I hope they don't enforce auto-save if they do end up implementing save.

Auto-save would definitely make GW much harder.

A properly working game that doesn't suffer from loads of bugs and issues, that what we WHINE about.

Auto save is a must if it is going to be rouge like. I don't like games as much that lack a real faluire state.

I would love to see a list of LOADS of bugs, as iv'e experienced ZERO in 20+ hours of play on the hardest setting.

There are still quite a few.

The devs work as fast as they can to fix them though. The game is in really good shape considering the time scale and budget.

I'll be damned. That's a lot sooner than I would've expected. I really hope it works well and doesn't require a bunch of additional patching for optimization. Still, nice to see this announcement.

Finally, one step in the right direction.

FINALLY
I never play multiplayer and im sure offline mode would definetely help since my internet has been screwing up recently

Since I don't have anyone to play PA with (well technically 2 people but they dropped playing it a year ago) I'm most likely looking forward to offline mode so I won't be at the mercy of a server crippling my frames when playing against the AI.

That said this had better work right off the bat since I don't want to see this screw up and end up costing weeks of patches just to get one thing right.
