Stand and fight for humanity.
This arcade shooter takes place in the year 2022, as the Earth Defense Force fends off an all-out attack by unknown life forms. Become an EDF soldier, battle against endless hordes of immense enemies, and restore peace to the earth.

Make way for the series' first humanoid aliens.

Just what is this intelligent, extraterrestrial civilization that has attacked our own, known only as the Primers? Matching their intelligence, they bring the series' first humanoid alien foes. Battling against these intelligent foes will bring you to the depths of yet-unknown despair, and the heights of joy.
Face the enemy with wisdom and courage!

The most jam-packed entry yet, with online co-op play!


This entry has more missions and weapons than any before it. On top of that, all missions support online co-op of up to 4 players, as well as local split-screen. Control the 4 classes and play with EDF soldiers all over the world.

STORY

This is no training exercise.
This is the living nightmare we'd all feared.


It all started in Japan, 2022. An immense fleet of starships laid siege to an EDF base located in the rough city outskirts in the Kanto region.

This was an enemy humanity had never encountered, the Primers. Even worse, enormous insects attack the EDF base built even further underground. The EDF fights back.


Even more realistic battles
Armor will peel off where you shoot enemies, and their fluids will spill out onto buildings and floors, making you feel like you're truly on the EDF's battlefield.


4 EDF classes powered up like never before
As the player, take on missions with one of four classes. Finish missions to unlock new ones and advance the story. You can switch classes before missions as many times as you'd like.

I feel like I've been saying this a lot lately however that won't stop me from saying it again, I'm totally in on day one!

Well unless another surprise announcement happens that I want more. Then I'm in on day eight, when I get my next paycheck! :smiling-face-with-smiling-eyes:

how was EDF5 on PS??
I remember 4.1 having quite a performance issues while being fine on PC
Anyone know the answer? Long time fans surely have an opinion on it. Performance is of no concern for PC, as you say. But I want to know how it plays.

Intrigued, will have to wait for some reviews first though, as I've only really put time in to older console versions

I've not played it yet myself as I've been waiting for this release but it's supposed to be the best EDF yet with some good QoL improvements. Basically if you enjoyed any other Sandlot EDF no reason you shouldn't enjoy this. They tend to stick pretty closely to their formula.

I wouldn't worry too much about the DLC (apart from the DLC mission packs which aren't even out on PC yet) at least. It's always 'tat' you don't need and just buy some day super cheap in a sale.

Of course it's always fun to go into the Steam discussion forums and see the surprise at a game around 6 months old being expensive, especially from D3.

The game is now listed on Humble, so it can be bought a bit cheaper for those who have the monthly discount:
