Starship Troopers: Extermination Is A New 12-Player PvE Shooter Coming Next Year

The only good bug is a dead bug!

Offworld Industries, the studio behind titles like Squad and Covert Syndrome, has announced a brand-new Starship Troopers game, called Starship Troopers: Extermination.

This co-op first person shooter will pit up to 12 players in squads of four against increasing Bug threats on a huge, multi-zone map while they scrounge for resources, build bases and ultimately extract to safety. The debut teaser trailer doesn’t give us anything in the way of gameplay footage, but it’s worth a look for Starship Troopers fans:

For a better look at the game, the Steam store page is already live and features a handful of screenshots as well as more info on how Starship Troopers: Extermination will work. Here’s a quick rundown of the features to expect:

  • Cooperative Gameplay – 12 players can team up in squads of four to defend your 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 of 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 callout points of interest, objectives, incoming enemies, and more to teammates

Starship Troopers: Extermination is expected to launch sometime in 2023 for PC.
