Starship Troopers Terran Command brings players to the frontline in the war against an alien threat. Based on the cult movie franchise Starship Troopers, this title lets players control the action as they hold the fate of humanity within their hands. As the movies often say, "The only good bug is a dead bug," so players should prepare to lock and load as they charge into a war for the future on PC.
This title is still in development, making this clip its first official showing. Players got their first taste of how the units act and a good look at the kind of combat that they will eventually have to confront. The game is intended to include base-building, strategy themes, and a whole lot of bugs.
In Starship Troopers Terran Command, players lead the Mobile Infantry in ground-based assaults. The demo released by developer Slitherine Games showcases a "Canyon Ambush" in which multiple squads must hold off an onslaught of bugs. In the clip, the developers demonstrate maneuvering squads, tactical use of explosives as an ever-increasing swarm marches towards the troopers.
One of the more exciting moments is when a massive Beetle surges from the ground and begins to soak in the infantry fire, just like in the films. In a similar fashion, the Mobile Infantry uses a variety of explosive options to cause a spectacular explosion of red goo to rain upon the battlefield. While the developers have more work to be done, fans of the Starship Troopers franchise can rest easy knowing that the game will include explosions, gore, and a never-ending swarm of man-eating bugs.
The real-time strategy genre has been a cornerstone of PC gaming for multiple decades. This success has been helped in no small part by the diverse range of settings that the games take place. The genre has seen WW2 shooters, mythical battles, and Ancient Egyptian warfare.
Another popular type of RTS game is futuristic science-fiction. This category has been dominated by Blizzard Entertainment's StarCraft series. The original game, StarCraft, won a multitude of awards upon release. Including Strategy Game Of The Year by GameSpot and Real-Time Strategy Game Of The Year by PC Gamer.
Moreover, Blizzard Entertainment managed to catch lightning in a bottle twice when they released StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty. StarCraft 2 surpassed the original game and is one of the highest-rated games on Metacritic with a whopping score of 93.
StarCraft 2 was released over a decade ago, and its been almost half a decade since the game's last expansion pack. Consequently, many fans will be itching for a similar game to play with no sequel in sight. Here are the 10 best games to scratch that itch.
The Age of Empires series may be set in a completely different time period to the StarCraft games, but it deserves a spot on this list nonetheless for being among the best RTS games ever made. Age of Empires 2 perfected the formula that Age of Empires created and revolutionized the RTS genre.
Age of Empires 2 is set in the middle ages and focuses on resource management, base building, and unit deployment. In late 2019 a definitive edition was released. It includes all of the game's expansion packs and is the best way to play the classic strategy game.
