We don’t always post ‘gone gold’ posts, but when we do, it’s because we’re insanely excited about the game.
For those who are unaware of the series, EDF puts you and some of your friends in co-op against swarms of giant ants, hordes of giant robots and fleets of hi-tech spacecraft with only your wits and a few hundred unique weapons of (often) mass destruction to defend yourself. The environments are usually fully destructible, there’s ridiculous numbers of levels and a difficulty curve that seems to keep on going. This is everything you should want in a game and it’ll be in your hands February 21st. If you buy it that is. Which you should.
We’ll bring a full review once the game is out (February 21st on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC). There’s also a new EDF game in the works for the Xbox One and PS4. So very excited.
With the release there’s a number of DLC packs on the way, the full details of which you can find in the press release below.

About Earth Defense Force 2025
Earth Defense Force 2025 is the long awaited return in the Earth Defense Force (EDF) series from beloved Japanese developer Sandlot. 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.
Earth Defense Force 2025 is an action shooting bonanza that arms players as an EDF soldier equipped with hundreds of 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. Featuring the largest number of missions from the series and includes four-player 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.
