Here we go with a game that should have been made years ago, as Starship Troopers: Terran Command is announced and heading to us on our PC sometime in 2020. Most of you might not even know what the franchise is as it has not really been in the mainstream since the 90s but that has not stopped Slitherine from tapping The Artistocrats from putting their RTS skills to work. Not that we have not seen games in the same vein of Starship Troopers since then, but now we have one that is specifically placed in the franchise and building off the story and events of the first film. It has only been twenty-three years since then, so maybe it is time to give it another look to prep here.
Not too much other than that is out there for Starship Troopers: Terran Command, but we will be playing as the mobile infantry with all of their gear, mechs, and air support. All while wave after wave of the bugs come at us. We will be able to deploy units all over the dynamic maps of the various planets too. All while following orders blindly or making our own rebellious choices. Something that will lead us down different upgrades and tech paths. Not something that feels like the Starship Troopers film, but it does sound like a fun little extra to drop in for gameplay to me.
