Post feature RSS Starship Troopers: Terran Command Releases; 5 Starship Trooper Total Conversions Doing Their Part

Starship Troopers: Terran Command has released, so here's five more Starship Trooper experiences for a bit of bug-hunting thrill!

Posted by on

Starship Troopers: Terran Command has finally launched on Steam to very positive reviews, putting the defeat of the Arachnids and survival of humanity in the player's hands. The franchise has had quite a storied modding history, however, with numerous games having been converted to this universe - so here's five Starship Trooper total conversions if you want even more bugs to fry!


Starship Troopers: 1st Interstellar War

Enter the Terrans. The Federation is as big as the Arachnid empire and have an instinctive fear of bugs. Couple that with an advanced space military and technology and you have a big problem for the Arachnids. This new threat was so great that even forcing the skinnies to fight wouldn't be enough. New and bigger, more powerful warship were bred to combat this new threat to their total dominance of the galaxy.

Starship Troopers Doom

DOOM's already about fighting back hordes of demons in an effort to save humanity and the world - with a kickass attitude and gung-ho approach to fighting the spawn of hell. Replace the demons with bugs and weapons with sci-fi rifles and, well, alright then - you've got yourself a Starship Troopers experience. Battle the bugs, hold the line, and don't give up - or maybe you'll get shot yourself!

Starship Troopers: The Homefront Campaign

Chokepoint


A mod for the Axis and Allies RTS adding a new campaign and new maps, new units, and two new factions; the Strategically Integrated Coalition of Nations (SICON for short) and the Arachnid Empire. After SICON victory on the "bugs"' home planet of Klendathua, and the supposed destruction of the Arachnid queen in space, the great bug was thought to be over. This all changed when the bugs launched a surprise attack. It is up to you as a SICON general to stop the arachnid's offensive, and save humanity from annihilation.

Starship Troopers TC

SST TC


The TC takes place after the first film. It follows around a Mobile Infantry Elite Commando veteran (the player) going onto missions alone (sometimes with allies) in Arachnid planets. The player starts out by escaping from Starhip Sparta, before landing to Kaliatho. The objectives were either to rescue officers, to investigate facilities that have lost contact, or to hold off against Arachnid assaults. The TC has new planets. They are Kaliatho, Gamma, Planet 3, and more.

Starship Troopers: Opposition provides a wide range of weapons, equipment and characters from the Starship Troopers Universe. Take part in the war as a soldier of the Terran Federation or be a Bug from the Arachnid Empire. Its your choice! ARMA's tactical combat adds even more weight to every loss and sacrifice in the name of humanity, with greater numbers and stakes on the table for every squadmate.


Doing Their Part

Starship Troopers: Terran Command is the second title by developer The Artistocrats, taking strategy and tactics into the gung-ho militarism of the iconic sci-fi franchise. Not making too many jumps to the video game medium, Terran Command is a unique case for the series but takes players back to familiar territory with the objective of wiping the battlefield clear of everything that moves. Originally slated for a late March release, it was pushed back just before the deadline to June - and that appears to have been worth the wait.

The Only Good Bug...

The game features an intense 12-15 hour long singleplayer campaign, building up the alien threat and necessity of base management until a climax featuring an all-out survival against overwhelming numbers of bugs. Whilst the campaign has been phenomenally received, players have also criticised the game's lack of skirmish or conquest modes - as in, once the campaign's done, so are you. It's not clear at this time if the developers plan to expand the foundation of the game with these - or add the also hotly-requested and fabled mod support - but it appears like it might be worthwhile given the apparent quality of what's already there.

campaign with no capacity to play as the Arachnids or against AI in skirmish modes


Knife To A Nuke Fight

The game's available on Steam for £23.79 GBP/$29.99 USD, with Very Positive reviews. Powered by Unreal Engine 5, it's part of the vanguard of early titles showcasing the engine's versatility, and an exciting new experience for Starship Troopers and strategy fans.

I beat the campaign for this game in like 8 hours on the hardest setting. Unfortunately that's all that is available in the game right now plus a couple challenge levels that were kinda easy IMO. Overall it's a decent game, but if you are looking to get more bang for your buck, I'd wait for more content.

Yeah, that's what I heard. Solid campaign, but all there is to it. Seems like the kind of game begging for a scenario editor, given there's a solid foundation, and if the issue is devs being strapped for resources to make more expansive modes, putting content creation in the hands of the community would be great way to expand the quality of the title.
