After being relatively quiet since its 2019 announcement, the survival RTS adaptation of Starship Troopers is finally getting a playable demo.
Starship Troopers: Terran Command is based on the first movie—not any of its paltry sequels, thankfully—and is being helmed by The Aristocrats, the studio behind the relatively well-received Order of Battle: World War II. We’ve not seen much of the game up until now, bar its announcement at the end of 2019 and a trailer earlier this year.
Looks like we’ll be getting our hands on the game pretty soon though, with publisher Slitherine announcing that the game will have a playable demo during next week’s Steam Fest. It’ll contain two scenarios, one of which will be an early one that’ll nestle in a decent chunk of the game’s mechanics. It’s your standard RTS fare: deploy armies to defend a central outpost, along with some classic Starship Troopers bug squashing.
