D3 Publisher began streaming an English-subtitled second promotional video on Friday for its upcoming Earth Defense Force 5 PlayStation 4 game. The video introduces the Ranger, Wing Diver, and Fencer EDF fighters. The English-subtitled version of the video states that the game arrives this year, but the video's Japanese version states that the game arrives this summer.
In the game, the Earth is at peace when suddenly an alien life form called "immigrants" attack, and the EDF must again take up arms against the invaders. D3 Publisher describes the game:
Now, in 2017, prepare yourself for a whole new fight in EARTH DEFENSE FORCES 5, an all-new tale of invasion by unknown alien forces and humanity's confrontation against them.
The 5th installment in the series brings with it the shocking arrival of a humanoid enemy! Is humanity destined for destruction in the face of this unprecedented threat?
Humanity, rise up and overcome your despair! Oppose your fate!
