The Co-Op Experience

Play locally in split screen with a friend or online with four players in co-op. Players can join any mission and play as 1 of 4 classes. Offline and online progress are saved separately.


The wild sci-fi action of the "EDF" series comes to the PlayStation4 for the first time in this complete reimagining of Earth Defense Force 2025, now with silky smooth framerates, beefed up graphics, and over 50% new content. After selecting from one of four unique playable classes and customizing their weapons, players will lead NPC troops into city-wide battles against hordes of seemingly endless giant bugs, robots, and other colossal enemies. Two players can enjoy local co-op and versus modes, while online co-op supports up to four players to increase the odds against a massive swarm of enemies.
