Would you like to know more? Why of course you would! Starship Troopers: Extermination
comes from developer Offworld Industries and is described as a "12-player, squad-based co-op FPS inspired by the 1997 cult classic film". It's set to debut in Steam Early Access on PC in 2023.
The setup sounds very cool, with squads fending off Arachnid forces as they fight together, build, and shore up defenses before escaping to an extraction point. With classes, progressions, weapons to master, and many, many bugs to exterminate Starship Troopers: Extermination is certainly one to keep an eye on.
Here's some early screens and info.
Cooperative Gameplay - 12 players can team up in squads of four to defend their base, complete objectives, gather resources, and try to kill every Bug in sight.
Three Playable Classes - Choose from Assault, Support, and Defense classes to best suit your playstyle and support the rest of your squad.
Build Defenses - Construct walls, towers, ammo stations, and more using resources acquired from planetside refineries.
Class Progression System - Unlock new weapons, equipment, and perks for each class to become an elite warfighter among the Deep Space Vanguard.
5 Unique Bug Types - At Early Access launch, encounter Drone, Warrior, Gunner, Plasma Grenadier, and Tiger Elite enemy Bugs during planetside missions.
Escalating Infestation Levels - Increasing Bug threat levels during missions bring bigger and more dangerous enemies to the fight.
Large-scale Battles - A massive map with five unique zones, and swarm-based combat with hundreds of enemy Bugs on screen delivers the sense of an overwhelming planetary war.
Ground War - Retake bases and refineries, destroy hives, and complete a variety of side objectives to wrest control of the map away from the Bug menace.
Ping system - Communication is key! The ‘Ping’ system gives players a quick and easy way to call out points of interest, objectives, incoming enemies, and more to teammates.
