Earth Defense Force 5 is getting a deluxe edition for its western release



As we know, another western release of an EDF game is happening. Earth Defense Force 2025, also known as Earth Defense Force 4, arrived on western shores in 2014. Four years later the follow-up will be released outside of Japan.

The aptly named Earth Defense Force 5 is set for a 2018 release later this year on PS4 with a deluxe edition in tow, and is up for pre-order on the PSN. That deluxe SKU will net you "all future DLC" and content like weapons, support arms, and missions. Speaking of EDF 5 will contain 100 missions across five difficulty settings and the most important part -- two player co-op via split-screen (four players are supported online).

EDF! EDF! EDF! As the saying goes.
