Earth Defense Force 2025 Ravaging Consoles in 2013
Written By
View author's profile

Namco Bandai has revealed that more insect-squashing madness is console-bound next year, with Earth Defense Force 2025 under development at current Japanese EDF studio, Sandlot.

Having been dormant for a while, the oversized insects return to Earth, sending the population into panic as a state of emergency is declared. With a host of EDF classes to choose from and more weapons in your arsenal than ever before, Earth Defense Force 2025 is set to be the biggest in the series yet.

With the return of the ravagers also comes the first Earth Defense Force title to feature 4-player co-op on consoles, with "tons of missions" promised for the OTT action-shooter that sees you killing towering ants, spiders and so forth. Earth Defense Force 2025 will be starting a new insect raid when it releases in 2013. Check out all six debut screens below.

hope this returns to even vaguely near the quality of global defence force on the PS2....i've played all but insect armageddon (and GDF tactics, which was a different game type) so far, and GDF was the best I.M.O.

the palewing unit added much more to the game, and made it feel much more complete than any of the other titles, making EDF2017 look like a jump backwards...and insect armageddon just got pretty much everything wrong with the low level count etc

i'll no doubt give this a try, more likely if it has online co-op and remains more true to the originals

and finally @5 GTFO, graphics aren't everything...there once was this thing called, GAMEPLAY

Be better then Insect Armageddon, that was far to easy, far to short, and not worked out well for the endless survival mode.

never played the 1st game but i 1k'd EDF:I.A. and that was a right grind, i did enjoy the game even though the game was well overcooked regarding the criteria, especially getting those bloody rare weapons.

i wonder what the criteria will be this time?

4 player co-op should be a laugh.

I enjoyed EDF Insect Armagedon last year but I don't like grind achievements that took too much age (not work but just long time with same gameplay over and over so it is become kinda bored if like that with grind achievements). Anyway I look forward next series because last series were good but first one is crap in 2006.

@2 you want a gring, try the first EDF. you had to beat each difficulty seperately. plus collect every gun in the game. dumb thing was. the highest difficulty didnt unlock the lower ones!

i have them all so far. the first was a blast! the 2nd even better. i have high expectations now. great series so far. reminds me of starship troopers. comon maggots you wanna live forever! - micheal ironside character

The first EDF on 360 sucked balls. So hard to max and not very fun to boot.

@9 Why the fuck are you complaining about Insect Armageddon's gameplay when you said you've never even played it?

i didn't complain about IA's gameplay, i was hinting at other games lacking gameplay,
however, my nephew has insect armageddon, and warned me off it because he knows how much 2017 annoyed me. i'll maybe think about getting it when i have a games drout, aside from that, i'll just wait for this one rather than play something by a different developer who seemed to miss the point a little

This needs to be downloadable, I'm not spending $40 on this again, gladly $15 for such a fun game.

The pictures give me the impression that this game will have the same feel as EDF 2017, which I loved playing the co-op. I haven't played Armageddonand probably will not; I'm just going to pick up EDF 2025 if the gameplay looks good.
