D3 Publisher Inc. has announced that Earth Defense Force 5 will be coming to PlayStation 4 in the West this fall.
This latest entry in the series introduces a new humanoid alien race from the mysterious planet, Primer, who will join the usual giant insects in the battle for Earth. “The battle with this hyper intelligent enemy brings unprecedented depths of despair and must be confronted by the player with courage and wisdom,” the publisher adds.
Alongside this new enemy race, players can look forward to 100 new missions with five difficulty settings, over 1,000 arms, two player local co-op, and online co-op for up to four players. Watch the debut trailer below:
Earth Defense Force 5 will be available in both Standard and Deluxe Editions at launch. The Deluxe Edition features full access to all future DLC content, as well as exclusive missions, weapons, support arms, and more.
