PQube has confirmed that two Earth Defense Force games will be heading to Europe later this year, with one of them being released for the PS4 while the other will be on Vita. The PS4 offering is Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, which is the first new gen edition of the franchise. It is actually an upgrade of Earth Defense Force 2025. The game features near 100 levels and will let you control vehicles like helicopters, jet packs, and giant robots. You’ll be able to play the game alone or co-op in both local and online multiplayer. The environments are also fully destructible.
On Vita Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders from Planet Space is being released, and this is a remaster of Global Defense Force 2 which released on PS2. This edition will offer both local and online multiplayer, free roam maps and a number of vehicles to use against the bug horde.
