Earth Defense Force World Brothers, a very different take on the EDF, is coming to consoles on 27 May.
The newest deployment for Earth’s defenders now has a date, thanks to a new announcement by publisher D3. The latest in the Earth Defense Force series of alien bashing adventures is set to land on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on 27 May 2021. As you would expect from the EDF, the new entry will still pit players against bug eyed monsters and tentacle laden enemies, but this time you’ll find something that seems a little bit different.
A voxel art aesthetic is in store for new recruits to the Earth Defense Force World Brothers. The battle for the human race will head to America, United Kingdom, Japan, Egypt, and more as players group up with their voxel based brethren from across the globe and jump into online co-op to take on legendary EDF monsters. More than 100 different soldiers are available to players to choose from in this more family friendly version of the franchise, giving players plenty of abilities to chose from. Fans of previous instalments will recognize classic EDF soldiers, while local recruits make up the bulk of the combatants in this bright new tale.
Whether you grab a jetpack and a blaster or something a little more exotic, you’ll need to pick the best weapons to res-cube humanity. If you love Trove but want something a little bit different then Earth Defense Force World Brothers is worth a look, and no this is not an April Fool’s joke.
