D3 Publisher Inc. just announced that Earth Defense Force 5 will be hitting western markets on the PS4 this fall.

The game follows its initial launch in Japan. In Earth Defense Force 5, players fight against hordes of aliens in order to save Earth. These hostile and invading insects will put each player’s courage and wisdom to the test as well. Players must use their weapons and allies to not only fight these invaders in an all-out war, but also new humanoid aliens from a mysterious planet Primer.
