Is there base building in Starship Troopers – Terran Command?

There is at least some kind of building mechanic.

Since Starship Troopers - Terran Command is a real-time strategy game (RTS), many assume it has building capabilities. There is no base building in Starship Troopers - Terran Command, as shown in the demo released in Oct. 2021.

Although there is no base building, you can build defenses to protect your base. It may not be the same, but it is something, at least. Essentially, you're putting up defenses or walls to prevent your units from being shot at. This doesn't really extend to combat defense because the main objective is to kill bugs with your Mobile Infantry.

Like the movie and book, the game's main focus is the Mobile Infantry. The Mobile Infantry did nothing but fight Arachnids, and the game wants you to focus on positioning units and killing bugs—nothing else. Building bases is not an option.

Although there will not be bases around, the developers have premade the environment and buildings. The desert planet Kwalasha has been inhabited by humans for some time, so there is an environment that features buildings and bases.

This isn't a game like Age of Empires. It's more like Command and Conquer in that you're winning battles, not trying to win an entire war in one mission.
