Some awesome news just reached our news desk and we just had to share this, Slitherine are bringing a classic the the gaming world.
Starship Troopers – Terran Command is a thrilling single-player, real-time strategy game set in the classic Starship Troopers movie universe.
Take command of the Mobile Infantry and do your part in the war against the Arachnid threat. Build, develop and command your armies and exterminate the bugs. Ensure that human civilization, not insect, dominates the galaxy now and always!
The campaign’s intro will be familiar to all who have seen the 1997 sci-fi film classic, Starship Troopers, from TriStar Pictures. You will first take part in the infamous attack on Klendathu: as in the movie, the action starts with a gung-ho assault, but soon takes a turn for the worse, culminating in a general retreat from the planet.
You will then be deployed to the harsh, desert planet of Kwalasha. Take part in this exciting military campaign, ship out to amazing and varied locations and experience the heroic war against the Bugs – all presented live on FedNet.
As the story unfolds, you will progress from a green platoon leader leading recruits fresh from training to a rugged veteran commanding elite forces across the wartorn planet.
Expect a genuine Starship Troopers feel: violence & gore are commonplace as entire platoons of fresh recruits are sent into the meat grinder, as part of their patriotic duty to the Federation. Dismemberment, splats of bodily fluids and flying fragments, horrified screams, and flailing, crawling bodies will be the norm. The scenes of devastation standing jarring contrast to the boisterous and gung-ho attitude of the soldiers at your command, eager to prove their commitment to fighting for the Federation and earning their citizenship
Units & Abilities
An expansive range of unique units, weapons, and special abilities are at the disposal of Mobile Infantry commanders. Infantry squads armed with Morita Assault Rifles and MX-90 Fragmentation Grenades form the mainstay of your forces. Rocket Troopers deliver deadly payloads with pinpoint accuracy while Engineers vitally shore up defensive positions with MG turrets, barricades, and minefields. As the campaign progresses, technological breakthroughs unlock the true potential of the Federation’s arsenal with E-Pulse rifles, TAC Fighter airstrikes, heavily armed Marauder mechs, and many more developments optimized for spraying Bug ichor across the battlefield
Take command of the Mobile Infantry and hold the line! While the Arachnids can rely on virtually limitless numbers, the Mobile Infantry must develop effective tactics to overcome this imbalance. Deploy your units at strategic locations to cover vital choke points and gain superior firepower through tactical use of elevation levels. The careful positioning of units to maximise their firepower is the key to success, through the creation of intersecting fire zones combined with the clever use of special weapons and abilities.
