The Crazy Mayhem of Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon Comes to PC this Fall
One of my guilty pleasures on the Xbox 360 has always been the Earth Defense Force titles. Earth Defense Force 2017 was one of those underadvertised titles that had a simple premise – here are a ton of enemies, now go and kill them. It was quirky and was firmly rooted in its old school Japanese roots. It reminded me of all those monster films that came out of Japan in the 1970’s, except you only had your guns and reflexes to save the world. Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon upped the ante on this, with larger levels, more creatures and the ability to play co-op locally or online with two other people. It was a great escape from the seriousness of some title, with the idea again surrounding the idea of kill a lot of bugs and other enemies. My only complaint was that I would have loved to have a crack at this title on my PC, with mouse controls for aiming. Well, D3Publisher is about to make that happen this fall.
Yes, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is getting the full PC treatment, coming exclusively to Steam this fall. It will include all the great stuff that was in the console titles, but will use Steam for its multiplayer and distribution. No price or exact release date is known with the exception of “Holiday 2011″, but get ready to stomp the hell out of some bugs with your gaming rig this fall.
D3Publisher was nice enough to send along several new screens straight from the PC version of the game to see how it looks. Check them out below.
