The updates includes 4 new Deathmatch/Team Deathmatch maps - Bait, Duel, Hill and Offensive in the straight head to head mode where up to 32 players are pitted against each other in various arenas, the objective being to kill your opponents and claim your top score place. Team Deathmatch allows players to team up and collectively aim for their place at the top of the kill table.

Also included are 3 new Co-operative maps - Bait, Psiops and Stronghold, allowing up to 8 players to form their own squad of Mobile Infantry and play together to defeat the bugs. Here's the desperate situation in one of the new maps: Whilst transporting a squadron of Marauders back to their command ship, your ship is hit and downed in the heart of Bug territory. You've got a Mech Trooper who can fix the ship but he needs some spares, which must be located from another busted ship. This is hostile territory and the arachnids know you're there - but if everyone stays behind to protect the mechanic, who is going to get the parts from the broken drop ship?

Starship Troopers attempts to capture the magic of Paul Verhoeven's classic original movie. The player is immersed in immense bug-blasting battles in both famous action-packed scenes from the Starship Troopers universe.
