Starship Troopers enlist date

Demo fired up too.

A release date has been shot out for Empire Interactive and Strangelite's first-person shooter, Starship Troopers, with news of a playable demo on its way too.

The PC game, based on the 1997 movie (which itself is based, albeit tenuously, on the 1959 sci-fi novel) will get a full launch for retail inspection in the UK on October 26th, with a playable demo lined-up in a few short weeks - September 1st being mooted.

Empire currently says the demo will be single-player, although will confirm this and more details soon, so you can continue your daydream of stepping into Johnny Rico's bug-splattered shoes just that little bit longer. We'd do 'im.
