'Earth Defense Force 6' Needs More Polishing, Delayed Until Summer 2024

by Rainier on Feb. 12, 2024 @ 9:32 a.m. PST

Earth Defense Force 6 picks up three years after the events of Earth Defense Force 5 in the year 2027, delivering an adrenaline-pumping experience for veteran players and new fans alike looking to save the world.

In the year 2025, humanity won the war against the unknown invaders known as “Primers”, and peace returned to the planet. As a result of the conflict, 90 percent of Earth’s population was destroyed, and civilization was on the brink of collapse. 

Earth Defense Force 6 picks up three years after the events of Earth Defense Force 5 in the year 2027. The survivors continue their efforts to rebuild but threats to the world’s safety remain persistent. The Primers left behind many alien colonists and the two species have become increasingly hostile toward one another. The number of invasive organisms nesting in the depths of the earth and its ruins continues to increase.

The Earth Defense Force (EDF) is once again called upon to protect the planet from the aggressive extraterrestrial invaders and determine the true purpose of the giant ring-shaped object that has recently appeared in the sky.

Will the EDF be able to pull humanity from the edge of defeat, or will this be the species’ last stand?
