D3 Publisher has delayed Earth Defense Force 6 from the spring to summer 2024 release window.
Taking place several years after the events of Earth Defense Force 5, the sequel reveals mankind defeating its invaders and winning the war on Earth. However, the war came with a heavy toll, as only 10 percent of humans were left on the brink of extinction.
Humans now look to the future and hope to continue to defend the Earth from invaders as alien colonists once again appear.
In our previous review of Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain, we said that the series offers “mindless fun, and sometimes video games like this are beautiful in their way. Of course, that doesn’t excuse the difficulty spikes, inconsistent difficulty or forgettable narrative. Then again, we’re blasting away at massive insects invading Earth. Iron Rain is a solid spin-off title that restructures itself enough to work. If you’re curious about this game, I recommend checking it out.”
