Steam Version of 'Earth Defense Force: World Brothers' Ditches Region-Locking

When we reviewed Earth Defense Force: World Brothers, the recent EDF spin-off from Yuke's and D3 Publisher, we mostly had a great online co-op experience. The Steam version of the game, however, inexplicably suffered from region-locked lobbies. (The PlayStation and Switch versions weren't affected.) Workarounds will no longer be necessary when playing with folks from other places, thankfully, because the region locking has now been fixed!

Earth Defense Force: World Brothers Co-Op Review

Earth Defense Force games have traditionally been M-rated affairs, if only because the giant insect and frog enemies spray lots of goopy blood when shot. Earth Defense Force: World Brothers, the new spin-off game from Yuke’s and D3 Publisher, is a more family-friendly entry that trades in low-budget but realistic visuals for colorful and bloc...

Looks can be deceiving

Earth Defense Force: World Brothers Eyes on Preview

There's been almost 10 Earth Defense Force games released since Earth Defense Force 2017 came out on the Xbox 360, but one thing has remained constant in the series - the sense of scale. That was the answer given by series creator and producer on Earth Defense Force: World Brothers, Nobuyuki Okajima. With the new game in the series departing from the more realistic look we saw in Earth Defense Force 5 it's good to know the soul is still in tact.

Earth Defense Force: World Brothers Mixes Voxels with Giant Bugs

The next game in the Earth Defense Force series is going to be a little different. Called Earth Defense Force: World Brothers the game makes uses of voxels instead of polygons to convey its destructive nature. While the game was always over the top, the new style gives it a slightly more kid friendly feel but still B-Movie all the same. The game isn't a change in direction for the series, it's merely a spin-off.

Earth Defense Force 5 Now Saving the Planet on Steam

When Earth Defense Force 5 launched on PlayStation 4 last year, PC gamers immediately began to ask when the game would be coming to Steam. The previous two EDF games, Earth Defense Force 4.1 and Wing Diver the Shooter, both arrived on PC after first launching on Sony’s console, after all. Now those PC prayers have been answered, because EDF 5 is finally available on Steam.

Earth Defense Force is a cult favorite series traditionally developed by Japanese indie developer Sandlot and published by D3 Publisher. D3 Publisher has never been shy about allowing spin-off games to come from different developers, including the disappointing American-developed entry EDF: Insect Armageddon.

Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain Defends the PlayStation 4 this Spring

A new Earth Defense Force is on the way for the PlayStation 4, and it appears to be the series most ambitious title yet. In a series that started as a budget game with a B movie feel, EDF has grown to a full fledged AAA release. Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain is going to bring many firsts for the series, including full fledge character customization. You know what that means? Hats and emotes!
