We're delighted to announce that, following on from a hugely successful Public Beta, the signups for Planetarion's 12th round, titled "The Edge of Darkness", will go live on Monday 4th October.
Since Round 11 finished in early September our coding & development team have been hard at work on improving every aspect of the game, from more balanced ship-stats to a range of new skins, numerous interface tweaks and general game improvements. For this upcoming round we've also changed the galaxy setup with each group of 10 planets being a mix of 5 private and 5 random ones. We've done this in an effort to help those players newer to the game with it giving them a chance to play alongside seasoned veterans. We've also enhanced the game for those players who want to try it out with more functional free accounts. A full list of the changes made for Round 12 can be viewed here.
Players can claim their own part of the Planetarion Round 12 Universe from 18.00 GMT on Monday night, with the round ticking hourly from 18.00 GMT on Wednesday 13th October.
