Earth Defense Force 2025 preview: co-op creature extermination

Earth Defense Force 2025 preview: co-op creature extermination

Oversized monsters are ready to once again destroy our feeble human cities. Earth Defense Force 2025 takes the best qualities of its predecessors, shines them up, and expands with new weapons, characters, and multiplayer dynamics--all whilst keeping its B-movie charm.

The core mechanics haven't changed much from previous installments: you either work alone or in split-screen co-op to exterminate all of the behemoth enemies--from giant insects to extraterrestrial creatures. 2025 expands the formula, adding over 700 weapons, and featuring more than 80 missions.

EDF 2025 trailer crawls out as invasion delayed to 2014

Bad news, troops. Earth Defense Force 2025 has been delayed from its planned 2013 launch to February 2014. But hey, D3Publisher had barely spoken about it in ages so you may had forgotten anyway, and E3 brings a new trailer for you to enjoy. With EDF creator Sandlot back at the helm, it's again looking the right sort of janky. Maybe.

Earth Defense Force 2025 gameplay trailer explodes bugs

The behemoth bug-smashing Earth Defense Force didn't fare so well under another developer in EDF Insect Armageddon, but the series is back with creator Sandlot for Earth Defense Force 2025. A few minutes of gameplay skittered under the door and went unnoticed in all the Christmas hubbub, but now we're back at work let's take a few minutes out to enjoy how squishing colossal ants, spiders and robots should look.

Watch: EDF! EDF! EDF! »

Earth Defense Force 2025 coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 next year

Earth Defense Force 2025 coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 next year

D3's giant insect franchise is coming back next year. Earth Defense Force 2025 is slated for release on PS3 and Xbox 360. Unlike 2011's Insect Armageddon, this follow-up is from Japanese developer Sandlot, creator of the original series. As typical for the franchise, you can expect "over-the-top action and massive city-leveling explosions." Man, property values must be really terrible in D3's apocalyptic vision of the future.
