The much anticipated return of the Earth Defense Force series from Japanese developer Sandlot is here. Earth Defense Force 2025 is a third-person action game which sees you battling to save the planet from giant invading alien insects. With hundreds of weapons, 4 new soldier classes, and specialized vehicles, it sounds like there’s plenty to keep those bugs at bay whilst you squish them under your rocket launcher-shaped boot!
The game also features completey destructible enviroments, with online and local multiplayer for up to four people in co-op and versus modes.
Peter Andrew, vice president of production at D3P said, “Not 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. Nearly 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.”
Take a look at the outlandishly brilliant screenshots and trailer below.
I thought I'd get this one out of the way first... you won't believe how difficult it was for me to upload this image... Spiders... :(
The poor thing will die if it stings you... oh no, that's Bees... KILL IT!
There's no such thing as 'overkill' when there's giant spiders involved.
Earth Defense Force 2025 is available for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 now.
