Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a co-op multiplayer Arcade Shooter that gives the player the ability to destroy thousands of giant bugs and turn an entire city to rubble in an unforgettable gaming experience built for replay.

Taking place in the fictional city of New Detroit, Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a completely new game that takes on the concept of Earth Defense Force 2017. Insect Armageddon continues to follow the rich history of casual fun and addictive gameplay that made the franchise a cult classic.  Insect Armageddon also adds a new aspect to the Earth Defense Force series that was born in Japan, with additional elements for all EDF soldiers to experience. 

The Campaign mode that lets up to three players team up online to battle the insects and aliens across a completely destroyable city.  Every EDF soldier is armed with over 150 weapons and four upgradeable armor sets and engages in nonstop arcade action that is the fastest and deadliest in the series. 

In addition, the game also features a six-player Survival mode that pits a human squad against a nonstop onslaught of the largest enemies the aliens have to offer. 

New Detroit’s giant bug problem is unavoidable, and mankind’s last hope lies with the Earth Defense Force to defend the world from the insect swarm, even if it means blowing up the entire city as part of the extermination process.

Available exclusively at GameStop, Pounds of Pain! The EDF Battle Armor Weapons Pack features a total of 15 exclusive brutal weapons designed to send those bugs 6 feet under!  The pack will equip EDF’s customizable Battle Armor with eight new weapons including the C9 Turnburl x Shotgun and Brux Fab Chowbrow Grenade Launcher that promises to obliterate insects upon impact.  In addition, the Trooper and Tactical Armors receive immediate exclusive upgrades of their own including the RLF -17 Floorboard Rocket Launcher and the VanSnaster SpreadBurst Assault Rifle.


Available exclusively at Best Buy, Death From Above! The EDF Jet Armor Weapons Pack includes 15 of the EDF’s most powerful weaons in one supply drop.  The Weapons Kit will equip EDF’s flying Jet Armor set with eight exclusive weapons including the Plantain Ind. Torchee Sniper Rifle and Brewbreaux 08b-m Missile Launcher.  In addition, Trooper and Tactical Armors also receive an exclusive set of upgrades including the El Gigante Rocket Launcher and the Wallagis 1776 L Missile Launcher.

The bonus codes will be provided by these retailers as downloadable content (DLC) at no extra charge with a reservation or pre-order of the full Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon video game.
