D3 Publisher has announced that Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, their bonkers “bugs versus humans” shooter, will be released for the PC through Steam on July 18.
Earth Defense Force 4.1 is an expanded and enhanced remake of Earth Defense Force 2025, which was originally released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in 2014. The re-release debuted on the PS4 last December, and now it’ll be invading Steam in just three days. In addition to slightly slicker graphics, Earth Defense Force 4.1 will include a series of bonus levels and the option to lead a squad of NPC soldiers into battle against the alien menace.
D3 Publisher plans to sell Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair through Steam for $49.99, but the game will get a big 30% discount during a limited-time Launch Sale.
