Earth Defense Force 2025 Has Gone Gold!

What else can we say besides... EDF! EDF! EDF!

It may seem impossible to believe, but Earth Defense Force 2025 is something like the sixth EDF game that Sandlot has put out over the last few generations. What started as a small little mindless shooter that was famous for crazy giant bugs, tons of guns and destructible buildings has evolved into a huge mindless shooter with crazy giant bugs, even more guns and even more buildings falling all the time.

That doesn't mean we aren't still excited for the new game when it comes out next month. Of course we are! If you are looking for a way to pass the tmie with a few buddies while you shoot the shit and shoot giant spiders this series won't let you down.

We mentioned that the games have been getting bigger, and 2025 clocks in as by far the biggest game yet featuring over 80 missions and a whole armory of new guns. Word on the street is that the bosses are bigger than ever and you'll have more options when it comes to choosing your soldier. Make no mistake, this still isn't going to be a deep game, but if you've become addicted to the joys of constantly unlocking newer and more insanely powerful guns you'll be more in love than ever.

Not only is there a ton of content packed into the $50 main game, but publisher D3 has already scheduled a series of mission packs that will release shortly after the game launches (the first is actually available at launch):

Mission Packs Include: (Will also be available as a bundle)
Special Ops Will feature 5 new missions for $2.99 and be available on February 18.
Mutant Rampage Will feature 20 new missions for $8.99 and be available on February 25.
Beyond Despair Will feature 20 new missions for $8.99 and be available on March 11.

I guess what we are trying to get across here is that the PlayStation 3 is alive and well at the moment. As long as someone is out there making new EDF games you can't safely put the console away.

And just imagine the possibilities of a next-gen EDF!
