Never heard of Earth Defense Force? Okay. Ever watched Starship Troopers? Well then, you basically know what Earth Defense Force is all about then, but there are exosuits and mechs in the mix. It’s a 3rd person shooter featuring the EDF which is comprised of an international organisation of governments whose mission is to protect Earth from alien invasions. Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain is the eighth instalment in the series, believe it or not, and the developer D3 Publisher released a new trailer and gameplay video today.
Be sure to note that the game is still in development and there could be many optimisations in the works. The footage you’re about to see is from the game running on a vanilla PlayStation 4 courtesy of Dualshockers.
Aliens won’t be the only enemies you’ll face as there are human factions who are opposed to the government that will try to ruin your day. As if battling giant insects wasn’t enough. Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain is slated for a 2019 release for the West on PlayStation 4 only.
