That is not all that was announced during IGN Live! We’re proud to let the community know that Casper Van Dien, star of the original 1997 Starship Troopers film and the actor behind the iconic character Johnny Rico, will be making a grand return in Starship Troopers: Extermination.

Johnny Rico will be commanding the single-player game mode to be included in our 1.0 launch, alongside new enemies, locations and more. As for what players can expect from this experience, you’ll be tapped for an elite spec ops group within the Mobile Infantry. Players will find themselves following the orders of living legend General John “Johnny” Rico, testing their mettle against hordes of enemy Arachnids with the aid of three original NPC allies to prove themselves worthy of selection.

This new game mode is focused on providing a unique single-player experience. It offers 25 distinct missions and a variety of unique PvE combat scenarios across various environments, and we’re looking to follow up with a second chapter after the 1.0 launch. Additionally, in the coming weeks, We will share more information regarding Starship Troopers: Extermination—including details about the latest update.

At Offworld, we’re ecstatic and grateful to bring our work to the console community and to have the opportunity to work alongside such a titular character in the Starship Troopers universe. We hope you all can look forward to what Casper Van Dien will bring to Starship Troopers: Extermination as we continue our Early Access development journey. Did you miss out and want to catch the full announcement? You can catch the entire IGN Livestream here!

If you haven’t yet, the Early Access edition of Starship Troopers: Extermination, as of Update 0.7.0, is currently available for $29.99 USD—a lower price point than it will be when it launches into 1.0. So gather some friends, enlist, and work together in the name of the Federation! The battle will be intense but as hardened warriors standing for all of humanity and the United Citizen Federation’s Mobile Infantry, leave no inch of ground safe for the Arachnids!
