D3Publisher have announced that Earth Defense Force 2025 has gone gold and is set to launch on February 21st for Xbox360 and PS3, alongside the first of three downloadable mission packs.
Earth Defense Force 2025 is the long awaited return in the Earth Defense Force (EDF) series from beloved Japanese developer Sandlot. The insects return from dormancy to disturb the peace with over-the-top action and massive city-leveling explosions that will entrench the EDF and the citizens of earth into a state of emergency.
Earth Defense Force 2025 is an action shooting bonanza that arms players as an EDF soldier equipped with hundreds of weapons, four new soldier classes and the training to exterminate insects of all sizes in the global quest to protect the world from alien invasion. Featuring the largest number of missions from the series and includes four-player multiplayer, Earth Defense Force 2025 is an all-out battle against the terrifying Ravagers that have come back stronger than ever in their mission to destroy the planet.
