Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair, which is an update to the original Earth Defense Force 4 (also known as Earth Defense Force 2025) will add a new vehicle called the Depth Crawler, a four legged tank that can jump and crawl on walls.
The vehicle will feature huge headlights, which is probably its most useful tool. Tunnels in Earth Defense Force 4.1 are dark, so players will need to illuminate areas with either a light on their gun or the Depth Crawler. Considering Earth Defense Force 4 had lights inside the tunnels, this is definitely a change.. While the Depth Crawler was designed for underground combat, the vehicle can be found in other levels too. If you’re in a city stage, the Depth Crawler can hook to buildings as well.
Earth Defense Force 4.1: The Shadow of New Despair will be releasing on April 2 for PlayStation 4 in Japan. Check out the screenshots below:
