PQube announced they are publishing a physical release the D3 Publisher and Sandlot-developed kaiju killing action game, Earth Defense Force 5, on PlayStation 4 on September 18.
Earth Defense Force 5 first released back in 2018 on PS4, but this was a digital release only, which may have hurt the game from being discovered. However, all that is changing now with the physical release. Still, it seems to be the same game that released on PC and PSN.
Earth Defense Force 5 stays true to many of the systems introduced over the series’ lifetime, including featuring the four soldier types that were shown in Earth Defense Force 2025, Ranger, Wing Diver, Air Raider, and Fencer. However, a new system allows players to unlock armor and weapon upgrades to take down enemy kaiju more easily.
The game features over 1000 weapons across 110 levels. Additionally, there are multiple difficulty levels, from classing to Inferno mode and coop options that allow up to four players to destroy monsters with friends.
Earth Defense Force 5 puts players up against hordes of creatures ranging from giant ants and spiders to full-blown kaiju type monsters destroying the city. Players must travel around the city with a group of military officers and fight back against the invading threat.
