Earth Defense Force 5 Shows New Moves And Smarter Aliens At TGS 2016



D3 Publisher revealed new gameplay for Earth Defense Force 5 during a stage show at TGS 2016. Here’s a look at its action and an introduction to new extraterrestrial enemies. [Thanks, Game Jouhou.]


As previously reported, Earth Defense Force 5 takes place on Earth, but in a renewed world where we’ll get to see mankind meeting extraterrestrial enemies for the first time.


Below is a look at two new types of enemy races, that are of intelligent life:



The “Colonist”



The “Cosmonauts”


The Colonists and Cosmonauts are tough enemies that know how to evade and take cover. Since you’ll get to break body parts in Earth Defense Force 5, you can use that to your advantage by shooting enemies in the legs to destroy their mobility, or by shooting them in the arms to prevent them from attacking.


Each and every effect is being upgrades, so it’ll bring a fresh new feeling to the series. For example, Rangers can now dash to their heart’s desire by simply holding down the L3 button. Pale Wings will also be able to perform emergency evasive boost maneuvers.


Currently, only the Ranger and Pale Wing are the only revealed classes. Below is a look at some more enemies that we’ll encounter in Earth Defense Force 5:




Some more extraterrestrial enemies.


The “Teleport Anchor”



“Battle Drones”


“Teleportation Ship”


“Landing Ship”

Earth Defense Force 5 releases in Japan in 2017 for PlayStation 4.
