Casper Van Dien, who played Johnny Rico in the original 1997 movie, is keen for a revival of the series reinterpreted as a TV show. "I think it would be nice to have Old Man Rico back," said the actor in an interview with Inverse, describing a structure not unlike The Mandalorian where different directors jump in to offer their spin on the sci-fi setting. "I think it would be fun to have some young blood in there but still have one old crotchety old man in there like me."
I only got around to watching the movie about a month ago and, I tell you what, I did not get why people didn't get that it was satirical. The "goodies" are literally wearing uniforms inspired by Nazi soldiers. So, if you want to leap into the world of Starship Troopers and beat those Bugs back to wherever they came from, then have I got the game for you.

It's a little strange to have us back in the boots of the Mobile Infantry, given the messages of the movie, but hey ho. As a survival real-time strategy title, the demo offers two missions, one of which immerses you in the mechanics to defend a central outpost, reactivate mining facilities and exterminate Bug nests in the area.
Steam Next is to be held from October 1st from 5.00pm GMT and ends on October 7th at 5.00pm GMT again. So, that's a lot of time to get stuck in with Starship Troopers - Terran Command. Unfortunately, developer Slitherine isn't able to shed any light on a launch date, though the opinions of players over the course of Steam Next might help the team on their way.
"We really want this game to deliver on the promise of a true Starship Troopers experience, and collecting feedback from the players is an important milestone of this process," explained executive producer David Sharrock.
