Starship Troopers - Terran Command is a real-time strategy game focused on defending the world from insect intruders. Set in the Starship Troopers universe, the game takes many elements both in story and style from its original inspiration.

In Starship Troopers - Terran Command, the player takes on the role of a military commander, controlling armies to protect the world from the Archanids in a tower defense-style approach.

Players will be able to access a wide array of weapons to do the job, ranging from Assault Rifles to Grenades, and can appoint different specialists, like Rocket Troopers or Engineers, to different positions on the battlefield.

Commanders can use the terrain to their advantage, too, allowing for a tactical approach. Starship Troopers - Terran Command will feature mechanics such as True Line of Sight and True Line of Fire, making terrain useful but requiring lots of thought to use well.
