Those dang space bugs are at it again. D3 Publisher is set to release Earth Defense Force 2025 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 later this year, and the new gameplay video above shows off the many ways in which players can tear through insectoid alien hordes.
A "heavy" unit type similar to the Battle Armor class in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon makes an appearance, as does the jetpack-equipped Pale Wing class (seen recently in the PS Vita port of Earth Defense Force 2017). Other new stuff includes lock-on weaponry, a motorbike (with sidecar), and vehicles that seem better equipped – and hopefully sturdier – than the fragile craft featured in EDF 2017.
The Japanese version of Earth Defense Force 2025 will launch in July. A US release has been announced, but a specific release date is not yet known.
