D3 Publisher Inc., a leading Japanese games publisher, is excited to announce the global launch date for Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain, the latest chapter in the beloved Earth Defense Force series. Developed by YUKE’S and scheduled to launch exclusively for the PlayStation®4 system on April 11, 2019, Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain enters new territory, introducing character customization, a new cast of characters focusing on one of the strongest military units in EDF, equipped with even more advanced gear, tech and weaponry – and a brand-new threat facing the Earth Defense Force and citizens of Earth.
Since it first launched in 2003 for the PlayStation 2 console, the Earth Defense Force series has earned a strong reputation for its relentless wave shooter gameplay and co-op fun, featuring swarms of enemies, a wide array of unique classes and weapons - and charming B-movie dialogue and settings with cities under siege by giant insects, kaiju monsters, and alien invaders.
This focus on pitting players against an overwhelming force of enemies continues in Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain while introducing exciting new gear and technology for stalwart EDF soldiers and a brand-new separatist faction, the Kindred Rebellion. Players will need all the help they can get as the Aggressor’s alien invasion of giant insects, monsters, and mechs continues to rain down terror around the world.
