Earth Defense Force 4.1 Brings Alien-Smashing Mecha to PC on July 18

D3 Publisher is bringing Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair to PC.

The alien-invasion cum mecha-action game will launch for PC, via Steam, on July 18th.

It’s worth mentioning XSEED Games localized the game for PlayStation 4.

Here’s a brief refresher on the game, via its Steam page:


It’s a fight for the future of the planet between the Ravagers, a merciless swarm of alien invaders, and the Earth Defense Force (EDF) in this third-person shooter.

As an EDF soldier you will go head to head in fierce combat against the hordes of giant alien insects and their slaughtering machines. Play as four different classes in over 80 missions with a range of 800 weapons at your disposal.

The most overwhelmingly numerous forces of Ravagers the series has ever seen will take the EDF fighters to the depths of despair and back! Online co-op play supported.

    Already own this on PS4, but I’d buy again on PC if a decent modding community springs up.

    Awesome news! I love these PC ports and will gladly support them! I’ve never played an EDF game before, but from what I’ve seen, its giving me major Starship Troopers vibes and the gameplay itself looks really fun. I’m generally into more story oriented games, but I’d be willing to give this a go.

    There’s also Power Armor, which puts you on about the standing of a Venerable Dreadnought in 40K.

    The Starship Troopers vibe is spot-on.
    One thing I like about the game which is not mentioned enough is it’s bite-sized mission setup.

    The campaign is split into many short missions, which you can retry on various difficulty levels, so the entire thing is very pick-up-and-play.

    Only Half Life 3 and Journey remain unconfirmed from that list…
    HL3 might be Vive exclusive…
    Not sure about Journey, but want it to happen so bad…
    Sony could earn a lot by just porting it…
    That’s how good it is…

    Excited for sure, but disappointed by the lack of local co-op in the release news. This will make my EDF partner sad.

    Weird, couldn’t find the steam page about an hour ago. Hope that’s true. Wonder why they wouldn’t mention it for the release.

    Is it bad that I’m hoping for Imperial Guard quotes to be modded into the game?
