'Starship Troopers' is the game based upon the hit 1997 movie.

You play the role of an elite Marauder - the Special Forces of the Mobile Infantry. As High Command's precision strike tool it's your duty to spearhead the campaign against the arachnid menace. Whenever 'the going gets tough' Marauders are expected to lead the way!

The full game consists of 12 single player levels - set in diverse environments such as desert canyons, abandoned mines, lonely trooper outposts and of course - the bug nests!

In the course of the campaign on Hesperus you will have to fight 19 unique species of bugs, from harmless chariot bugs to huge plasma bugs capable of knocking out spaceships. To assist you in this epic confrontation you'll be able to use 11 different weapons - each with their own strengths and weaknesses.

Multiplayer entertainment is covered by deathmatch, team deathmatch and of course specially designed co-operative missions.

There will also be an unlockable score based mode that allows players to compare their speed and kill tally.

The full game will be available in the 4th quarter of 2005.
