Announcing Update 0.8.0: Carnage on Planet X-11

June 24, 2024

Troopers, we’re happy to announce that Update 0.8.0: Carnage on Planet X-11 will be set to launch for troopers to experience June 24th, 2024 at 10:00 AM PT(GMT-7).

Remember to keep yourself in one piece out there. We will be releasing the full patch notes soon, but you can find below a summary of what Troopers can expect in Update 0.8.0.

Weak Points

We introduce the much-anticipated Weak Points and Armor system, impacting all Bugs and Federation weaponry. Choose the right tool for the task and strike where it counts—right in the nerve stem! We're thrilled to finally bring this feature to the game, enabling you to serve the Federation with greater efficiency! So brush up on your aim, Troopers, and make use of what we taught you!

Planet X-11

Welcome to a new locale for the Deep Space Vanguard to explore, set in the Tibannis system within an Arachnid Quarantine Zone. This is our first major venture into blending interior and exterior settings. The area is shrouded in mystery, but for those eager to investigate, you might piece together what transpired here while fending off those pesky Bugs who have discovered the Listening Post!

We're thrilled to introduce the Persistent Body System, which we've dubbed "Carnage," in Starship Troopers: Extermination. Bug bodies will no longer vanish after being slain, so it's up to you to hack them apart with your hands or blow them to smithereens with explosives. Kill them all, but beware: while a pile of dead bugs is a Trooper's greatest honor, the Bugs will also utilize their fallen comrades just as you use them for sightlines.

Ammo Types

In Update 0.8.0, Federation R&D is introducing two new ammo types: FMJ and Hollow Points. These additions aim to enhance your effectiveness in exterminating Arachnids. Load them up and let R&D know how they perform. We'll continue researching and expanding your armory!


Besides that, Update 0.8.0 will include numerous quality-of-life changes, optimizations, and improvements we've been working on behind the scenes. We will share the patch notes soon, so hang tight, Troopers!

0.8.0 is a big leap into bringing the Starship Troopers experience into Extermination, and we hope all troopers will enjoy the content we're introducing. We can't wait for you to experience this update and look forward to your feedback as we continue to develop during this Early Access period.
