The EDF deploys!
Earth Defense Force 5

Today is the day in which PC players can fight to save Earth from giant alien insects. That's right, Earth Defense Force 5 is now available on PC via Steam. It's published by D3PUBLISHER Inc. and developed by SANDLOT. The game is currently on sale for 20% off for its launch, making it just $47.99 (regular $59.99) until July 18.

There is also a bunch of DLC available, if you're into that sort of thing. Some of the DLC is more cosmetic in nature while some of it does give you a small advantage on the battlefield in the early stages of the game.

Right now, the PlayStation 4 version of the game is sitting at a 73% average on OpenCritic.

Developed by SANDLOT, EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 5 continues traditions set by the wildly popular series. Since it first launched in 2003 for the PlayStation®2 console, the EDF series has earned a reputation for its relentless third-person wave shooter gameplay with tons of enemies on-screen, its wide array of unique classes, weapons, loadout combinations, and its charming B-movie dialogue and settings with cities under siege by giant, out of the world creatures.

This focus on delivering an overwhelming scale of enemies and a sense of exhilaration continues with EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 5, featuring the most detailed enemy models featured in the series to-date with breakable limbs and body parts and more advanced AI behavior.

Packed with tons of content and high replay value, EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 5 delivers over 100 missions with five levels of difficulties to choose from for each mission. Including more than 1,000 weapons and armaments to unlock, it also offers players four unique classes to master, allowing players to approach mission goals and objectives in a variety of ways. Classes include the Ranger, a well-rounded infantry soldier, the Wing Diver, a highly mobile air unit, the Fencer, a heavy weapons unit with thick armor, and the Air Raider, a support focused class with the ability to call in various air support types like vehicles, orbital air strikes, and missile barrages. With multiple options for multiplayer, EARTH DEFENSE FORCE 5 also offers up to four-player online co-op as well as offline couch co-op, supporting up to two players via split-screen.
