Earth Defense Force 5 Physical Copies Will Be Deployed in September

People with bug-related phobias, look away! Earth Defense Force 5 is back again. This time, it’s getting physical. PQube announced it will be responsible for getting Earth Defense Force 5 physical copies into North American and European stores on September 18, 2020. This only applies to the PlayStation 4 version of the game. The 2022 invasion is happening all over again.

The initial announcement doesn’t note if this version will include all of the game’s DLC. As a reminder, after launch people were able to buy additional Mission Packs, weapons, and even piloted weapons and vehicles. 

Here’s a trailer showing what Earth Defense Force 5 is like, just in case you somehow managed to escape seeing giant bugs attacking the Earth between 2003 and today.

Earth Defense Force 5 is available on the PlayStation 4 and PC worldwide. The Earth Defense Force 5 physical copies will arrive in North America and Europe on September 18, 2020. If you’re waiting for a new installment, rather than a physical release for an old one, Earth Defense Force: World Brothers and Earth Defense Force 6 are on the way.
