Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain, the upcoming entry in the long-running series, will be coming to the West for PlayStation 4 in 2019.
This entry is being developed by Yuke’s, the team behind the WWE games, and is a slightly more serious and grounded Earth Defense Force game.
“The Earth Defense Force series moves away from its traditional series and into new territory with this new project,” the game’s description reads. “Developed by Yuke’s and teaming up with world-renowned artists to create an all new Earth Defense Force experience. Fight on an Earth devastated by giant creatures in this exciting third-person shooter.”
Both Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain and the upcoming Earth Defense Force 5 will be playable at Tokyo Game Show later this month.
Earth Defense Force 5 will also be getting a Western release on PlayStation 4 this fall.
