D3 has quietly announced the release date for Earth Defense Force 2025. Be prepared to shoot down hordes of alien bugs on February 4, 2014 on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

The Earth Defense Force series centers around shooting down hordes of massive aliens, including giant, acid-spitting ants and ten-story tall robots. You play as a soldier with an arsenal of guns and explosive weapons to combat the coming hordes of aliens. That’s it. That’s all there is to it, and Earth Defense Force 2025 is no different.

That doesn’t mean there isn’t anything new to the series. The hapless soldier tasked to fight the aliens now comes in one of four classes: Ranger, Wing Diver, Air Raider, and Fencer. Each one has unique abilities that either take down aliens faster or help out allies. Speaking of which, the game features up to four player online co-op or two player local co-op.

While we have to wait until next year, Japan will get Earth Defense Force 2025 on July 4. Until then, check out the screenshots below and the fact sheet after it.

FACT SHEET

 

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:

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 features 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.

 

KEY FEATURES:

  • The Most EDF Content Ever! – With tons of missions filled with over-the-top action in five different difficulty modes, including the ever-challenging Inferno Mode, players will need to battle through waves of intense combat to bring peace to earth.

  • Four Player Online Multiplayer – Online multiplayer support for up to four players, allowing players to team up with their friends to create the ultimate EDF squad and fight together against the Ravagers (local co-op and local versus mode).

  • Completely Destructible Environments – To save cities on earth, you’ll have to destroy them in pursuit of eliminating the insects!

About Karli Winata

Karli Winata is an avid gamer with a taste for a little bit of everything. Except for sports games. And racing sims. And definitely not hidden object games! I guess everything is too broad a term. Suffice it to say that he has been known to play hours of Call of Duty multiplayer in between bouts of Persona fusing and Star Coin collecting while saving the world/galaxy through sensibly bald space marines or plucky teenagers with impossible hairstyles. Where does he find the time to write about them?
