It's almost time once again to protect our planet from those dastardly alien bugs. Earth Defense Force 6 has been out in Japan since August 2022, but its localised Western release was confirmed for 2024. Now, we finally have a firm release date — the game arrives on PS5 and PS4 on 14th March, 2024.

This is another co-op shooter in the famously schlocky series, where low-quality character models, technical hiccups, and OTT skirmishes are the order of the day. EDF 6 looks like it'll be another lovably janky ride.

This is apparently the biggest EDF yet, containing the most weapons and missions of any game in the series. While co-op (online or offline) is the ideal way to play, you can also play solo.
