Now begins the ultimate battle between huge aliens and Earth Defense Force. Humanity, fight against fate, the world existence is staked on this war.

Year 2022.
A case was taking place in the base 228 of EDF.
Deep underground, the huge facility was invaded, and people were attacked by unknown monsters.
At the same time, a gigantic mothership flew around the world and began attacking without discrimination.

So it is that you, the player of this game, will become one of the private citizens who was accidentially inside base 228.

You will bravely take up arms during this crisis, joining the intense fight against the aliens without realizing that you will become the soldier who will eventually control the fate of Earth...

Become one of the soldiers of EDF and exterminate the invading aliens. Protect peace on Earth.

What are the unprecedented and intellectual alien beings from another planet called the "Primer"? A series-first enemy alien finally appears. The battle with this intelligent enemy produces unprecedented deep despair, while leading the player to the most fun yet as EDF must confront them with courage and wisdom.
