Starship Troopers is a franchise about humanity coming together to fight a threat that will cause the extinction of the human race if they don’t come together and work as one. Thanks to the Arachnids, humanity has successfully banded together to fight the common enemy. No matter who you are, if you’re fighting bugs, humanity is right behind you.
Which begs the question: Does a game based on humanity coming together have any sort of co-op or multiplayer?
Is There Co-Op / Multiplayer? – Starship Troopers Terran Command
Unfortunate for those expecting any sort of multiplayer, Star Ship Trooper Terran Command will feature no such thing. The developers put their focus in making this a single-player experience. During a Twitch stream on Slitherine’s official Twitch channel, marketing director Marco A. Minoli touched on the matter of the subject.
Minoli goes on to say that multiplayer will never happen in-game, but they have thought about implementing co-op later on. While they did say they thought about it, it is not entirely guaranteed that it will show up in the future. Sometimes, plans get scrapped in favor of other content.
If you’re looking forward to play with friends, I suggest you keep your expectations low for co-op to be implemented to avoid disappointment. This type of game was built with single player in mind. Lots of development will have to go behind the scenes in order to rebalance the game to handle two players.
