Earth Defense Force 5 has yet to get a definite release date, and the window for the western release has gone from summer 2018 to fall. Still, on a more positive note, both the standard and deluxe edition are now available for preorder on the PlayStation store! Buying an early copy can get you some intriguing incentives, like a potentially handy decoy. Not to mention, the deluxe edition will give you “full access to all future DLC content, exclusive missions, weapons, support arms, and more.”
Let’s watch an Earth Defense Force 5 trailer, to give you an idea of what you will be working with.
Preordering either version of Earth Defense Force 5 will give you the following at launch, as listed on the PlayStation Store:
• Pure Decoy Launcher 16 variations set – A special decoy which will dance and sing in the battlefield.
• Volcanic Cracker – You can get the Wing Diver weapon and start using it from the beginning and you may only receive this weapon by pre-ordering the game.
