Ian McNeil, Slitherine LTD Development Director had this to say about the game being set in the Starship Trooper movie Universe.
“When creating this game, we aimed to capture the essence of the original movie and its universe. This is not only achieved by creating a coherent set of units and scenarios, but also by mimicking the language, visual elements, dialogues and the little details that made the film such an iconic, cult feature.”

 The gameplay of Starship Troopers - Terran Command is going to be a mix of several genres, including tower defense and RTS. Ian McNeil actually explained the gameplay style in a lengthy comment.
"If you take one of the most iconic movies from the 90s and shape it into a strategy game of survival, that mixes classic real-time mechanics, tower defense and tactical deployment of units then you have Starship Troopers - Terran Command in a nutshell. Modern strategy games are fast-paced and they successfully blend unit management, survival and captivating storytelling. Nothing is more suited to this type of gameplay than the Starship Troopers universe, where there is a continuous sense of danger and uncertainty."
