Today Offworld Industries, in partnership with Sony Pictures Consumer Products, announced the second update to the Early Access release of Starship Troopers: Extermination (ST:E), with new features and substantial additions to the base gameplay experience. Update 0.4.0 is the most comprehensive yet and adds Horde Mode: a brand new survival-based combat mode in which players take on swarms of enemies that gradually increase in difficulty, creating the ultimate test of your skills and wits. Fortify your base and defeat legions of invading Bugs, then step back to manage your customizable player profile and gather stats to earn bragging rights as the number one exterminator in the galaxy.
Update 0.4 introduces player statistics tracking and player profiles, allowing Vanguards everywhere to better reflect their personal destruction statistics. This first version includes core statistics such as total kills, revives, deaths, wins, losses and extractions, while more statistics will be added in further updates. Think there’s a specific type of enemy you’ve destroyed more than others? These player stats will tell you what you’ve annihilated with extreme prejudice, along with other indications such as kills by weapon type, and can be filtered by both Game Mode and Class.
Working closely with community players through Early Access, the Offworld Industries team has engaged all ST:E fans to help determine what features and mechanisms need to be built upon and evolve before the game eventually transitions to 1.0. Feedback from players remains an integral part of the ongoing creative process, as Offworld Industries works to replicate common requests and continues to add more and more content over the coming weeks and months.
The Early Access edition of Starship Troopers: Extermination, as of the Relentless Hordes update, is currently available for $29.99 USD – a special price that will increase as more content is introduced prior to the launch of 1.0 – reflecting the game’s development stage. players on the far front lines in an all-out war with the Arachnid threat.
