Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon

Check Out EDF's Bug-Stompin' Mech In Action

Earth Defense Force 2017 was a lot of things, but it wasn't a game for people looking for satisfying vehicles. Players who set foot in the game's mech suit or plopped down on the hoverbike were nearly guaranteed a short trip to the game over screen. The upcoming sequel, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon seems to remedy that issue, as a new trailer demonstrates.

As before, if you're not into insects, watching these bugs get theirs will either be a big dose of catharsis or a heaping helping of nightmare fuel.

  • EDF apparently comes packed with GOW horde mode. nice I might check this out for once.
  • So is GOW3 packed in with EDF or is it the other way around? :P
  • wait i thought EDF was suppost to be good it looks like crap i didnt seen any insects

    edit: ^^^ this was before they fixed the video, at first it was a video of gears of war
  • I would actually like to see Marcus Fenix chainsawing a giant ant. "Locus- ANTS?"

  • aw man, EDF is just another GOW clone now :(.

  • Mechs are a slippery slope... after playing Armored Core the standard walker mechs just don't do anything for me ;P
  • GOW3 actually looks like fun, unlike GOW2. Didn't like it too much. Felt too slow of a game.

  • Hey, did you know that they put the wrong video up???? I just wanted to inform everyone that they put the wrong video up, just in case you didn't know.
  • That is not EDF. Why do you give me this mainstream game? We want hipster B-games like EDF!!!
  • Cool beans.
  • Wait a second...

  • Sweeeeeeet :) Also, nice job getting the right trailer up so quickly. It was definitely worth the wait

  • Really looking forward to this.

  • Ewwww, I hate giant ants.  So to see them playing blown away and torched like that is very satisfying!

    Also, I think they should re-release Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M. as a downloadable game, anyone else agree with me?

  • Could they not make the mech look a little cooler? That looks like the most boring giant robot to control.
  • I played the first EDF on 360 a long time ago, before I knew any better. I just remember playing the first 5 minutes, and in those 5 minutes it seemed like I killed around 5,000 giant ants. Worst game I ever played.
  • Awesome. Vicious Cycle is doing a beautiful job with this franchise. Admittedly, the bar wasn't exactly very high :) It still looks awesome and fun. And seeing them incorporate a mech is exciting -- this is the studio that did Robotech Invasion and Robotech Battlecry!

    I wish they'd make another Robotech.

  • Only 13 more days...
  • Now this takes me back. Those buildings won't know what hit 'em. Did I say buildings? I meant to say aliens. I mean its not like I spent a massive amount of time leveling all the buildings in 2017......that would be crazy....
  • Yay!! A better moving Mech,in 2017 it felt like trying to turn a boat....took forever. I'm extremely excited to get this!!
