Starship Troopers Extermination Shooter Squad Arachnids

Starship Troopers: Extermination is a new squad-based co-op shooter coming to PC next year

Drive back the Arachnid threat.

Offworld Industries, the developer behind the 2020 tactical FPS Squad, has just revealed a new game that may please fans of ’90s cinema. This latest project, which functions as a squad-based cooperative first-person shooter, sets itself in the same universe as the 1997 cult classic film Starship Troopers, and it goes by the name Starship Troopers: Extermination. In terms of the release date, we only know so far that Starship Troopers: Extermination will become available for PC shooter fans sometime during 2023. Keep in mind that this release window applies solely to the Early Access version of the game.

According to the official Steam pageStarship Troopers: Extermination lets up to 12 players join forces and face off against hordes of hostile Arachnids. Players assume the role of a Trooper enlisted to fight for the Deep Space Vanguard to “take back colonies for the Federation.” Armed with a Morita Assault Rifle in addition to other unlockable weapons, players will have to cooperate closely as they tread through the dangerous planet Valaka.

Squad up

To succeed in Starship Troopers: Extermination, players must “defend [their] base, complete objectives, gather resources, and try to kill every Bug in sight.” If players wish to accomplish any of these tasks efficiently, they will need to carefully choose between the Assault, Support, and Defense classes based on their preferred playstyle. When playing through the Early Access version, squads will come face to face with five distinct Arachnid types: Warrior, Drone Gunner, Tiger Elite, and Grenadier. By taking advantage of the game’s ping system, players can notify their teammates regarding objectives, dangerous enemies, and important areas with ease.

While you wait for the Early Access release of Starship Troopers: Extermination, you can take a look at the brief teaser trailer Offworld Industries uploaded for its upcoming shooter. It only features a brief cinematic depicting Arachnids storming across a barren battlefield, so don’t expect anything too substantive.
