Earth Defense Force 5 Confirmed For Fall 2018 Release In The West

Earth Defense Force 5 is right around the corner, standard and deluxe editions now available to pre-order


Leading games publisher D3 have announced today that the newest title from their popular Earth Defense Force Series, Earth Defense Force 5, will be released in the US this fall. The game has so far proved to be a success in Japan, after it was released in December 2017.

The fifth installment of the series has players defending the planet after a hostile alien invasion, introducing new humanoid aliens from the mysterious planet, Primer. The game features over one hundred new missions with five difficulty settings, over one thousand usable weapons, two player split-screen co-op and an online co-op with up to four players.

As well as a standard edition of the game, D3 has also announced a deluxe edition. The deluxe edition gives players full access to all future DLC for the game, including exclusive missions, weapons, support arms and more features yet to be promised.

Both the standard and deluxe editions of Earth Defense Force 5 are available for pre-order at PlayStation Store. More information on the US released can be found at the D3 official English website. Or on the Earth Defense Force team’s twitter.
