If you read our recent feature about EDF, you might know by now it’s something we’re looking forward to. Luckily for us and everyone else involved, today sees the game’s release in Europe and Australasia. Hooray!
Earth Defense Force 2025 is the long awaited return in the Earth Defense Force series from beloved Japanese developer Sandlot.Â The insects return from dormancy to disturb the peace with over-the-top action and massive city-leveling explosions that will entrench the EDF and the citizens of earth into a state of emergency.Â Earth Defense Force 2025 is an action shooting bonanza that arms players as an EDF soldier equipped with 700+ weapons, four new soldier classes and the training to exterminate insects of all sizes in the global quest to protect the world from alien invasion.Â Featuring the largest number of missions from the series and including a versus mode and four-player online multiplayer, Earth Defense Force 2025 is an all-out battle against the terrifying Ravagers that have come back stronger than ever in their mission to destroy the planet.
â€œNot much is more satisfying in games than letting out a little steam and saving the planet from the infestation of insects that has returned bigger than ever in Earth Defense Force 2025,â€ said Peter Andrew, vice president of production, D3P. â€œNearly everything is completely destructible and players can start each battle fully equipped the way they wish that surely will create countless hours of fun for all.â€
