Finally something that looks like a decent first person shooter is coming in the Starship Troopers universe.
If you’re a fan of the Starship Troopers movies, we have great news. While a new Starship Troopers game was released earlier this year, it was an RTS and doesn’t offer the full experience. However, a new game was announced today that should have all the bug-killing action you could wish for. The game is called Starship Troopers: Extermination and it will be a co-op first-person shooter.
Not only is it cooperative, but you can play with up to 12 players. While that might sound a little crazy, it fits perfectly with Starship Troopers and the massive hordes of bugs seen in all related media. There is a trailer for this announcement, but unfortunately there is no gameplay. However, the Steam page has some gameplay screenshots.
If you want to know more details, its Steam page describes it as follows:
Starship Troopers: Extermination puts up to 12 players directly in the fight against the bug menace in this co-op first-person shooter. Suit up and travel to a distant front as a trooper in the Deep Space Vanguard, an elite mobile infantry unit. It’s up to squads like yours to battle hundreds of bloodthirsty insectoid aliens and retake fallen colonies for the Federation. The only good bug is a dead bug!
No trooper stands alone. Once the DropShip hits Earth, only your trusty Morita assault rifle and other Deep Space Vanguard Troopers will keep you alive as you explore the hostile surface of planet Valaka. Work together to complete objectives, gather resources, build and defend a base, and then escape together to the extraction point.
For now, all we know is that it will come to PC via Steam sometime in 2023. Starship Troopers: Extermination will initially launch in Early Access, and the developers estimate it will stay in Early Access for a year. The studio behind Starship Troopers: Extermination also developed the game Squad, which gets a very positive review on Steam.
In the meantime, if you’re looking for a game that feels like a great Starship Troopers adaptation, we recommend Earth Defense Force 6.
