Starship Troopers: Extermination Announced – IGN
Developer Offworld Industries has announced Starship Troopers: Extermination, an upcoming 12-player PvE first-person shooter for PC that’s inspired by the cult-classic 1997 sci-fi film. It’s due to launch into Early Access sometime in 2023. Take a look at the announcement trailer above and the first screenshots in the gallery below.
Starship Troopers: Extermination promises squad-based, large-scale battles against the bugs you remember from the movie. You’ll play as a trooper in the elite Deep Space Vanguard as one of three playable classes: Assault, Support, and Defense. New perks and gear will unlock as you progress in the persistent class progression system.

More details: Extermination will have a Titanfall-like ping system for easier player-to-player communication in the middle of a firefight, while tougher bugs will start swarming as the threat level increases. You’ll also need to build and maintain your own defenses – erecting walls, ammo stations, lookouts, and more.
A huge five-zone map promises a scale of grandeur as you battle five different bug types. Check out the first gameplay teaser and some exclusive concept art below:
