With a brand new physical re-release and a lower digital offering, there’s no better time to jump into this sci-fi bug smashing experience

July 18th, 2018 - PQube Limited is proud to announce that Earth Defense Force 4.1: Shadow of New Despair will be joining Sony’s PlayStation Hits for PlayStation 4 today alongside such titles as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Ratchet & Clank and Bloodborne. The title will be available both physically & digitally for €19.99.

Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair features:

  • Take on almost 100 levels – solo, couch co-op, or online with up to three friends!
  • Use tanks, helicopters, jetpacks, bikes, armoured rail guns, and giant robots to take on the invading alien force!
  • Huge, open levels with fully destructible environments.
  • Hundreds of weapons and gadgets from grenades, rifles, and airstrikes, to giant mecha!
  • Four different classes for unique play experiences. Soar over the battlefield as a Wing Diver, call the shots as an Air Raider, wade into the thick of it as a heavily armoured Fencer, or do it the old-fashioned way as a Ranger!
The wild sci-fi action of the Earth Defense Force series comes to the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system as Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, a complete reimagining of Earth Defense Force 2025 (known in Japan as Earth Defense Force 4) with the addition of silky-smooth frame rates, beefed-up graphics, and tons of new and rearranged content. After selecting from one of four unique playable classes and customizing a loadout from hundreds upon hundreds of weapons, players will lead NPC troops into city-wide battles against hordes of seemingly endless giant bugs, robots, and other colossal enemies.

In Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair , players will take on extraterrestrial invaders as the versatile Ranger, the aerial Wing Diver, the vehicle-summoning Air Raider, or the armored Fencer. Call in airstrikes, commandeer tanks, and operate giant robots to obliterate the alien scum that threatens our planet! Two players can enjoy local campaign co-op and head-to-head versus modes, while online co-op features 98 total missions (9 exclusive to online play) with support for up to four players to increase the odds against this gargantuan incursion.

Developed by D3 Publisher and Sandlot and published in Europe by PQube Limited, Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair will be available as part of the PlayStation Hits for the PS4™ system. This title has been rated PEGI 12. For more information, please visit the game’s official website at http://www.theedfdeploys.com.
