Newcomers to the giant insect genre, Vicious Cycle, are doubling the amount of weapons in Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. Vicious Cycle created 300 weapons compared to the 150 arms in Earth Defense Force 2017.
The streets of New Detroit will be filled with rifles (regular, sniper, and assault), rocket launchers, grenade launchers, and energy weapons. You’ll need these, plus four different types of armor, to fend off waves of giant ants and spiders. D3 says there are also robots in the game that are over 100 meters tall.
Need help? Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon has split-screen local co-op that supports up to four players. Players can also jump in and out of online campaigns or see who can last the longest in six player survival battles with endless wave of insects.
Like Earth Defense Force 2017, D3 plans on pricing Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon less than the typical PS3 / Xbox 360 game. Insect Armageddon will retail for $39.99 when it comes out sometime in spring 2011.
