Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is available at retail stores nationwide for the suggested retail price of $39.95.
"Since the launch of Earth Defense Force 2017 in North America, gamers have expressed their excitement about the hardcore fun and addictive gameplay that features the insects from outer space which has catapulted the franchise into a core gamer classic," said Peter Andrew, vice president of product development, D3P. "Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon follows the rich tradition of Earth Defense Force 2017 but this time features over 300 weapons, four upgradeable choices of armor, improved graphics, fully destructible environments, and online play for the first time in the series to make this the best EDF experience yet."
In Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, players can now participate in Campaign mode via online co-op for up to three players, or grab a friend and play in split-screen against the insects and aliens across a completely destructible city. Every EDF soldier can collect over 300 weapons and can choose from four upgradeable armor sets including the vaunted Jet Armor for battles on the ground and in the air. In addition, the game also features a six player Survival mode that pits a human squad against a nonstop onslaught of the largest enemies the aliens have to offer. Earth’s giant bug problem is unavoidable, and mankind’s last hope lies with the Earth Defense Force. Defend the world from the insect invasion, even if it means blowing up the entire city as part of the extermination process.
