Starship Troopers FPS arrives this month, and it looks brutal

Early access for the upcoming Starship Troopers game arrives this month on PC, and the only bugs are the ones you’ll be blasting.

Early access for the upcoming Starship Troopers: Extermination game arrives this month for PC players, and the only bugs we know of so far are the ones you’ll be blasting.

Players will be able to “do their part” in teams of 16 people, taking down the infamous bug aliens, known as Arachnids, found in the Starship Troopers universe, using a large array of fun and futuristic weaponry. There’ll also be a number of objectives to complete, ranging from simply surviving the onslaught, defending a base, collecting resources and extracting at the end of a mission.

There are also three different classes to choose from, Assault, Defense, and Support. These classes will vary in terms of stats and abilities, meaning the best teams will have a tactical mix of the three to really do some damage.

Class progression will also be included, allowing access to new weapons, abilities, and upgrades to your current loadout, so you can survive longer and squash bugs quicker.

Speaking of bugs, troopers will encounter five different types across their missions, which become more varied, and dangerous, as the mission goes on. There’s the Drone, Warrior, Gunner, Plasma Grenadier and Tiger Elite. Those Tiger Elite bugs sound like they’ll give players the most trouble.

The developers, Offworld Industries, also promised fans that as the intensity of the mission ramps up, there'll likely be hundreds of bugs on the screen at once, which sounds absolutely chaotic and a lot of fun at the same time.

If you’re a fan of Starship Troopers or cooperative shooters, this FPS is definitely worth checking out.

Starship Troopers: Extermination, will be landing into early access on the 17th of May for PC players only, who’ll be able to access it through Steam. Unfortunately for players on Xbox, PlayStation or Nintendo consoles, there’s been no news on whether the game will be ported to additional platforms
