Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon swarming onto Steam

The invertebrate-annihilating Earth Defense Force Series will make its long-overdue debut on PC this holiday season, D3Publisher has announced. Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is to be released for download on PC via Steam, complete with all the downloadable content released on consoles and Steam Cloud save support.

Along with Steam Cloud saving, the PC edition will have the requisite Steam achievements. You'll also be able to buy four new DLC weapon packs, one per armour class, each with ten new weapons to blast the heck out of creepy-crawlies.

Developed by Vicious Cycle, Insect Armageddon was originally released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in July to middling reviews. There's no word yet on how much the Steam edition will cost.

Here's a look back at the console edition in action:
