'Starship Troopers: Extermination' v0.8: Early Access Update Adds New Planet And New Carnage Dynamic

by Rainier on June 24, 2024 @ 1:30 p.m. PDT

Starship Troopers: Extermination is a co-op first person shooter that drops up to 16 players right into the fight against the Bug menace.

Starship Troopers: Extermination puts players on the far-off front lines in an all-out assault against the Arachnid menace. Squad up as a Trooper in the Deep Space Vanguard, an elite Special Forces group within the Mobile Infantry. And get ready to stomp some Bug because no Trooper will ever stand alone as they line up shoulder-to-shoulder with their fellow Vanguards—trusty Morita Assault Rifles in hand—to battle against hordes of bloodthirsty insectoid aliens on the hostile surface of the planet Valaka. 

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! 

Suit up and ship out, Troopers! After all, the only good Bug is a dead Bug! 

The exciting new v0.8: Carnage on Planet X-11 Early Access Update brings immersive and persistent carnage to the battlefield of Starship Troopers: Extermination. Prepare for an intense experience as the war against the bugs escalates to unprecedented levels.

Developer Offworld released the v0.8: Carnage on Planet X-11 Early Access Update Starship Troopers: Extermination, which adds Planet X-11 as a new battleground in the war against the Arachnids as well as a groundbreaking innovation in battlefield dynamics: Carnage. 

This new feature makes the cost of war an enduring part of the landscape as the corpses of slain Bugs remain scattered across the warzone, persisting until our mighty Vanguard soldiers can shoot, blast, or burn them away. Not only will the bodies of our enemies create an ever-evolving combat environment, but the still-living Bugs will adapt to the new terrain, which even allows them to reach previously inaccessible areas!

Planet X-11

Planet X-11 is located within the Tibannis system but lies deep within the Arachnid Quarantine Zone and is designated a mining planet for the federation. It also serves a more important role as it is the home of the Teefang Array Deep Space Listening post. The planet has been discovered by the bugs and is now under constant attack and must be defended. Planet X-11 will launch with:

  • 2 ARC Locations
  • 2 Horde Locations
  • 8 AAS Main Missions
  • 4 Hive Hunt Main Missions

Weak Points

Introduce a new set of systems to expand the depth of our shooting mechanics. The goal is to try and make shooting the Arachnids more interesting, and it requires player knowledge to make sure that you are either using the right gun for the job or have a good enough aim to avoid hitting the armor. Add depth to our gameplay by providing each enemy with an armor class and each gun with an armor-piercing value. Allow players to use either knowledge (What guns have what AP value) or skill (Just aim for the weak points) when killing bugs

The Carnage System

Carnage is the new in-house system we’ve created that will let troopers have a true Starship Troopers experience with Persistent Bug Bodies. As you fight the Arachnids, their Bug corpses stay in the game until they are destroyed. Corpses will stack and be traversable by both friend and foe alike, and if sightlines are an issue, Troopers will be able to use their hands to melee or explosives to clear a path if needed.

Demolition Damage Type

Demolition damage-type classified weapons and utility will excel at removing bug corpses.

  • Switched Thermo Charge to Demolitions damage type.
  • Switched Nuke Det Pack to Demolitions damage type.
  • Switched Hi-Ex Grenade to Demolitions damage type.

Ammo Types

The Federation is introducing two new ammo types which we hope aids your mission in wiping out the Bug menace! These ammo types come with their own benefits and tradeoffs and we'll look to add more as we develop ST:E!

  • Added FMJ Ammo which sets AP Rating to 4 , but decreases weak point damage to 1.25x .
  • Added Hollow Point ammo which increases weak point damage to 2x , but decreases AP Rating to 2 .

Quality-of-Life

New First-Time User Experience

Troopers will now be able to choose Language , Server Location , and whether to run the Tutorial right from the beginning of their first initial playthrough.

New Language Support

We have added Language support to the following languages:

Controller Adjustments

Moving ping temporarily to Aim Down Sight + Up  on the D-Pad  for players on controller

  • The end goal is to move Ping to its own binding (Up on D-Pad), move  Cycle Utilites to the Right on the D-Pad , and all Voice Chat Functions will be moved to the Left on the D-Pad .
  • We are moving to this system to give both Abilities and Ping their own buttons on the controller instead of sharing the same one.
  • If you play with a controller, please reset to defaults in the controls menu in settings to fix any issues you see around this.

Weapon Stat Display

Weapon Stats have been adjusted to display as numbers instead of bars, giving more accurate readouts for players.
