PQube confirm UK release date of ‘EDF 4.1: Shadow of New Despair’

by Phil Wheat

PQube have announced that the latest installment in one of my all-time favourite video game franchises, Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, is coming to Europe on February 12th, exclusively on Playstation 4. As if that wasn’t enough, PQube are also bringing Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders From Planet Space to Playstation Vita in Europe on the same day!

Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair is the latest entry on the popular Earth Defense Force franchise. EDF reaches new heights in its gigantic military vs kaiju gameplay on PlayStation 4. Huge monsters clash with giant robots as tanks and flying troops equipped with laser rifles shoot it out with alien bug armies in the streets. The action has never been bigger or more explosive!

Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair features:

  • Take on almost 100 levels – solo, couch co-op, or online with up to three friends!
  • Use tanks, helicopters, jetpacks, bikes, armoured rail guns, and giant robots to take on the invading alien force!
  • Huge, open levels with fully destructible environments.
  • Hundreds of weapons and gadgets from grenades, rifles, and airstrikes, to giant mecha!
  • Four different classes for unique play experiences. Soar over the battlefield as a Wing Diver, call the shots as an Air Raider, wade into the thick of it as a heavily armoured Fencer, or do it the old-fashioned way as a Ranger!



Earth Defense Force 2 brings giant monster carnage to the small screen in a big way – remastering one of the most loved instalments in the EDF series!

Earth Defense Force 2: Invaders from Planet Space features:

  • All the explosive free-roaming action of Earth Defense Force in the palm of your hand!
  • Three character classes to chose from – the agile Pale Wing, the hard-hitting Infantryman, and the tactically gifted Air Raider.
  • Increase your firepower with a range of heavily armed vehicles and protect (or lay waste to) the fully destructible cities.
  • Join up to three friends, either in local multiplayer or online, for co-op or versus mode!



All pre-orders (of both games) from Rice Digital will receive a limited edition, Earth Defense Force T Shirt baring the battle worn emblem of the Earth Defense Force. Check the store out here: http://www.ricedigital.co.uk/store/series/earth-defense-force
