Casper Van Dien, the star of the original 1997 Starship Troopers film, revealed that his iconic character Johnny Rico will return in Starship Troopers: Extermination, commanding players in a new, single-player game mode included in the 1.0 launch, alongside new enemies, locations & more.

The new game mode focuses entirely on a single-player experience, offering 25 distinct missions and a variety of PvE combat scenarios across multiple environments, with a second chapter to follow post-launch. Tapped for an elite spec ops group within the Mobile Infantry, players find themselves following the orders of living legend General John “Johnny” Rico, proving their mettle against hordes of enemy Arachnids with the aid of three original NPC allies to prove themselves worthy of recruitment.

Alongside the announcement, Offworld also shared a new gameplay trailer, showcasing the battles, Bugs and blasts that console players can expect from upon their enlistment in the United Citizen Federation’s Mobile Infantry. Additionally, in the coming weeks, Offworld will share more information regarding Starship Troopers: Extermination—including details about the latest update, which arrives at the end of June.

The Early Access edition of Starship Troopers: Extermination, as of Update 0.7.0, is currently available for $29.99 USD—a lower price point than when it launches into 1.0—and puts players on the far-off front lines in an all-out war with the Arachnid menace. Work together to complete objectives, acquire resources, build and defend your base of operations, and then escape to the extraction point together. The battle will be intense but, as hardened warriors standing for all of humanity and the United Citizen Federation, leave no inch of ground safe for the Arachnids!
