Join the Federation in New Starship Troopers: Extermination Gameplay Trailer

IGN Fan Fest offered gamers a good look at gameplay for Starship Troopers: Extermination, a new game set in the wild world of Paul Verhoeven’s film.

Yes…I would like to know more. I love the Starship Troopers movie (even though it’s drastically different from the novel) and have been thrilled to see it get more and more video game love all these years later. Over the weekend, as part of IGN Fan Fest, gamers were treated to a new look at Starship Troopers: Extermination, a new squad-based FPS that was announced late last year.

While it’s still a short trailer, it does bring quite a bit of gameplay footage to enjoy:

Starship Troopers: Extermination puts players on the far-off front lines in an all-out assault against the Arachnid menace. Squad up as a Trooper in the Deep Space Vanguard, an elite Special Forces group within the Mobile Infantry. And get ready to stomp some Bug because no Trooper will ever stand alone as they line up shoulder-to-shoulder with their fellow Vanguards—trusty Morita Assault Rifles in hand—to battle against hordes of bloodthirsty insectoid aliens on the hostile surface of the planet Valaka.


Work together to complete objectives, acquire resources, build and defend your base of operations, and then escape to the extraction point together. The battle will be intense but, as hardened warriors standing for all of humanity and the United Citizen Federation, leave no inch of ground safe for the Arachnids!

Key Features:

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 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.

No release date is set just yet, but Starship Troopers: Extermination is set to hit Steam Early Access on PCs at some point this year.
