The PlayStation Blog reported earlier that Earth Defense Force 2025 will be available for pre-order in the morning. For those of you who pre-order the game through GameStop, you’ll be receiving the Air Raider Weapons Pack, which includes:
- Pure Decoy Launcher (Setsu)—a weapon that distracts the enemy by discharging a large balloon that takes the shape of an attractive female, but the enemies will meet their fate when the balloon unexpectedly self destructs, destroying everything in its vicinity.
- The BMO3 Vegalta Gold—a limited edition, gold-coated model that will reflect radar waves and has a combat burner to throw flames. Players will also be able to take flight for short periods of time with it equipped.
There will also be additional weapon packs via pre-order or DLC that you can pick up at a later date. No news as of their release date or anything, but luckily I have the information of what those additional weapons packs are.
The Fencer Weapons Pack
- Ifrit—a cannon that launches rockets that will separate and disperse over the sea. Each rocket is equipped with multiple incendiary bombs that will ignite upon contact, causing massive damage.
- Blood Storm—a powerful cannon that will separate midair and rain down on the enemy’s head and inflict damage on an entire area.
The Wing Diver Weapons Pack
- Reflection Laser—a special laser that fires in two directions and can even shoot through narrow passageways. It’s an effective weapon with giant insects, as it can maximize range without obstruction.
- Gleipnir—this super weapon silently discharges balls of energy with the ability to launch continuous attacks. Only Wing Divers can use this weapon, as it requires the Psionic Link
The Ranger Weapons Pack
- Volatile Napalm—a military-grade discharge device that sets everything ablaze and damages the target and surrounding area.
- Pure Decoy Launcher (Mian)—a weapon that distracts the enemy by discharging a large balloon that takes the shape of an attractive female, but the enemies will meet their fate when the balloon unexpectedly self-destructs, destroying everything in its vicinity.
Earth Defense Force 2025 will be releasing onto PlayStation 3 in February 2014. Featuring more that 700 weapons, more missions, 4-player online multiplayer, vehicles, upgrades and more.
