The bugs just won't stop coming, so gear up for battle in this urban DLC for Starship Troopers: Terran Command, available now.

A New Chapter in the Starship Troopers Universe

Starship Troopers is experiencing an amazing revival many years after its original release. With games like Starship Troopers: Terran Command, Starship Troopers: Extermination, and even Helldivers 2, bug hunts are more popular than ever. Now, Starship Troopers: Terran Command has released its second DLC, taking the action into rarely explored territory – the city.

The Battle for Mahanagar

In Starship Troopers: Terran Command – Urban Onslaught, the massive metropolis of Mahanagar is under attack by the nefarious bugs. Friendly yet strict police units have tried to stop the insect onslaught, but to no avail. Now, it's time for the Mobile Infantry to prove their worth. Since its release in 2022, the RTS game has been steadily gaining popularity and now gets even bigger and better with some new twists.

New Missions and Challenges

This new expansion pack includes nine missions where you must push back the bugs in a dense urban environment. You'll be supported by the police, who may have limited combat capabilities but can help in crucial moments by drawing attention, repelling attacks, and calling for reinforcements. Speaking of reinforcements, you'll have access to four new units, including a cannon ship that provides the air support you need.

New Gameplay Mechanics and Units

It seems like the developer, The Aristocrats, is incorporating some tower defense gameplay by introducing some towers that can be activated to provide much-needed firepower. However, there's also bad news as the bugs have evolved and now come as Bursters, Hornets, and Ravagers – all threats that can quickly end your campaign if you're not adequately prepared.

Strategic Challenges in an Urban Environment

Given that Starship Troopers: Terran Command excels in line-of-sight RTS combat focusing on unit placement and firing arcs, the shift into dense urban environments seems like a great way to challenge your skills. To be honest, it sounds a bit daunting to imagine a street corner turning into a teeming nest of bugs just waiting to strike.

Availability and Price

Starship Troopers: Terran Command – Urban Onslaught is now available and offered at a 10% discount until Tuesday, June 25th. Visit Steam to check it out and take the fight against the bugs into the city.

Starship Troopers: Terran Command – Urban Onslaught DLC offers an exciting expansion to the game by introducing new units, missions, and challenging urban battles. Get ready, Mobile Infantry, the battle for Mahanagar awaits you!
