Starship Troopers is getting an RTS next year

If you wanted a blast from the past, and to feel old, Starship Troopers, the film from 1997, is getting a real-time strategy game in 2020.

Starship Troopers – Terran Command is being developed by The Aristocrats and published by Slitherine. Get ready to command armies fighting against the giant alien bug threat.

“If you take one of the most iconic movies from the 90s and shape it into a strategy game of survival, that mixes classic real-time mechanics, tower defense and tactical deployment of units then you have ‘Starship Troopers – Terran Command’ in a nutshell.”

Slitherine development director Iain McNeil

“Modern strategy games are fast-paced and they successfully blend unit management, survival and captivating storytelling. Nothing is more suited to this type of gameplay than the Starship Troopers universe, where there is a continuous sense of danger and uncertainty.”

Get ready for a dynamically generated campaign and watch how the story develops as you follow orders of Terran Command or head off to do your own thing, fighting bugs wherever you find them.

Now to grapple with the knowledge that Starship Troopers is 23 years old.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
