Recommended Videos

New details on Earth Defense Force’s April DLC has been leaked, and includes a new mission pack and more than 30 new weapons across the different classes. The developers also talked a bit about, of all things, cockroaches. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089!]


The new DLC mission pack in April will include these new enemies:

  • Aggressive Alien Species Alpha Armor Mutations
  • Protected Aliens Types A & B
  • Aggressive Alien Species Beta Steel Body Mutations
  • Predatory Invasive Series
  • Predatory Larvae


There are also 30 and more new types of weapons, including:

  • Wing Diver – Mag Blaster FDX
  • Air Raider – Nyx Saber
  • Fencer – 38mm Rage Cannon


Finally, the developers talked about how they will never implement cockroaches in the EDF series. This is because the developers aren’t aiming to increase the pure number of insects, and instead they choose the enemy species based on what would be most fun, and easy to understand as an enemy.


Earth Defense Force 5 is available in Japan for PlayStation 4.
