If you have a Steam account, you might be interested in a new game that has been released this week on the PC gaming platform. Earth Defense Force 5 is now available on Steam and released to the platform on July 11. The console release of this game was about 18-months ago, and it’s now been ported over to Steam in a great move. Continue reading below to learn more details about this arcade shooter game that’s a hit on consoles.
Earth Defense Force 5 Finally Comes to Steam
The newest game to hit Steam is Earth Defense Force 5, which is a PC port of the console version of the game. This game is an arcade shooter where you have to face-off with enemies that are giants. You play as the human and you must defeat the huge enemies to win the battles. There are humanoid types of enemies in the game too, but most of the time you will face giant bugs and creatures. In Earth Defense Force 5, you will find gargantuan ants and many other giant creatures.
The Steam Store page for the game talks about facing the enemies with courage and wisdom, which is definitely needed for this particular game where the enemies are huge! The main premise of the game is that you are trying to stop an alien invasion.
To do this you will need to kill all of the enemies you come across in the game to save the humans. There are four different Earth Defense Force classes that you can choose from to build your team. Beyond that, you have the option to play with another friend in a localized split-screen or you can team up with three people in the online co-op mode.
Earth Defense Force 5 Hits Steam & It’s a Ton of Fun
It’s a fairly simple game but it’s also a lot of fun with the whole game being focused on killing big monsters with various weapons. This game has features such as battle damage, which means you can easily tear apart the monsters using your guns and other weapons. There’s guns in the game and many different alien creatures and monsters, so it’s not a game that has a lot of strategy or needs a lot of skill to play.
Sandlot is the developer for this game and D3 Publisher was involved in the publication of this game on Steam. So between those two things alone, you know this is going to be a good game filled with intense fighting scenes and a really interesting out-of-the-world plot.
You can check out the reviews of the console version of the game to see just how popular it is. On the PlayStation Store, it has managed to get 5-stars with over 504 ratings. That should really tell you something about just how fun and cool this game really is. The Steam version of the game should be just as fun as the console version since it’s just a port.
