Earth Defense Force 5 comes out in 2 weeks (Dec 7th) in Japan. Anyone getting it? There have been a good deal of changes to the game so far. Many for the better I think.

>Rangers can now sprint so you don't have to roll somewhere 24/7 and can collect boxes easily without a wing diver or fencer.

>Rangers now have access to summoning certain vehicles again like motorcycles. Mainly stuff that the air raider would never summon because he could call in something much better. Rangers can use mines and claymores as well.

>Air Raiders can now accurately plot the airstrike location with a sky view.

>Walking mechs are now much taller than the vegalta walkers of 2025.

>Wing divers can dodge in mid air like the fencer. Certain wing diver weapons now become stronger depending on how long you charge them.

From what I've seen and read, the fencer has changed much at all besides their look. They don't have any new, unique weapons or features. Besides that though, there's a system in place that gives each class a certain passive.


The dash cell for the fencer is one that's a nice feature. It allows them to constantly dash so no more javelin catapult to go fast. Or how Rangers can just sprint through objects with a certain passive.

For some reason, D3 is adding Dream C Club characters again. If you pre-order from their site, you can get DCC decoys like in 2025. No clue if they charge for shipping. If you plan to get this game and don't have a bunch of PSN money on your JP account, then amazon may be the best choice. Or you can wait a while and get it used so you don't have to pay an absurd amount of money buying a new JP game at full price.

Hey anons i'm gonna get a no-gaems station 4 in a few months (probably after christmas) and i'm thinkan of getting EDF 4.1 on that. Yes, i know there's a PC version i pirated it and solo'd it (and my god, does it run real smooth) but is the PS4 superior / inferior to the PC version? I'm considering this since i probably won't upgrade my rig anytime soon and i've been itching to play Bloodborne so i might as well grab a few games that i used to play.

Most people are pretty chill, so there's not much. Use the voice lines and coordinate, and try your hardest no to die, not for your teams sake but yours, because you'll be sitting there forever and it's incredibly boring. Items like plasma charges can be incredibly useful considering how powerful wing diver is, most laser+missile systems suck though. If you're playing air raider, call down a vehicle ASAP whenever it's ready, that way you won't waste credits and your allies can use them too. And always read the server message, some people just have farm lobbies and some do whole story runs, so don't go in one expecting the other. That's all I got.

>piecemeal dlc fuckery

which you are freely able to ignore since the base game itself is already packed to the brim with content

<inb4 Horse armor DLC

Well shit, if you want to pay for stupidly underpowered weapons / tanks that are literal promotion items then be my fucking guest. If you want to pay for extra extra hard missions that are impossible to beat without grinding armour for hours, then go ahead shithead, noone's stopping you. I mean who buys that shit? i certainly don't

What i'm trying to say is that, while the game is ridden with DLC bullshit, it doesn't ruin the game like other AAA titles since the DLC itself is entirely ignoreable (since they differ in almost no meaningful way from the base game content.) and does not boost your progress in any meaningful way

The only anon i've seen in all these years making a fuss about this is (You), since everyone avoids the DLC like those shitty candies that noone eats on Halloween.

Stop spouting nonsense about EDF…the base game was fucking massive and nobody in their right minds would even think about missing content. The following DLC releases were reasonable priced, uniquely different from vanilla and a welcome addition.

I think its extremely likely that they make a PC version given how well it sold on $team, I figure they'll use its announcement and release as a separate marketing boost after it comes out on PS4. Either that or they're retarded and don't want to print easy money.

Theres some sort of skill system in place.

So for example you can equip a skill on the Fencer that lets you jump even higher and boost jet twice or equip the Ranger with a skill that lets him sprint faster and destroy any prop in front of him while hes sprinting.

I just hope the new mechs have new gimmicks besides being Vegalta reskins, I liked the Velgata design better as well since the handling feels like a stompy mech and the OG design looks like one as well unlike this one that looks like it should handle faster.

I'm also going to miss the Hectors, they were part of the cheese and looked more menacing than Pepe and Ayy.

There are a bunch of afk methods, where you leave a tunnel exit alive and sit in it aiming up with a rapier or dual jackhammers. Play in 2p mode to farm two classes at the same time. There are also a few missions in the DLC that have a silver spider spawner that is about 4x faster.

The easiest way is to use cheat engine.

Rangers can call stuff like tanks, railgun tanks and helicopters. I hope that they can also call the armored ambulances because that would make them much more useful.

Air Raiders also get a passive reload on some equipment like the deployable turrets.

Wing Divers have a numeric readout of how how much energy they have left, this readout is not a percentage number since it goes up to 142. It might be an indicator that you can upgrade your energy generator.

I noticed that other classes also gained armor after the ranger completed a mission. I wonder if we finally have shared armor gain now?

>shared armor gain

oh please yes. Armor boxes are the absolute worst aspect of EDF.

e194a8 No.13912342


I checked it again, it is not shared armor gain.

Not exactly anyway. 1 pickup means +1 health now and it is semi-random who gets it, with the class that picks it up having a higher chance to get it.

Hopefully they have also implemented a higher gain rate of armor on higher difficulty.

Hardest and inferno also seems to be locked, I assume that you need to unlock them by finishing the difficulty before them.

There also looks like there is a more proper story now as they actually have some story sequences now.

I guess we will have to wait until the 7th for more info.

e5db68 No.13912501


>I assume that you need to unlock them by finishing the difficulty before them

I'm honestly okay with that. The temptation to just go in and get carried on inferno is too great, so everyone ends up with high level weapons and no fucking armor thinking they can do inferno.

e194a8 No.13914228


I don't mind either, so long as they have a proper progression system for the armor. I really don't like the fact that the best way to earn armor is to keep replaying the easy levels because the harder ones don't give you more armor.

This honestly one of the biggest things for me and I am hoping that the reason that the harder levels are locked is because the armor rewards in them are so high that you need to earn their unlock to avoid the game becoming imbalanced.

352960 No.13914236


But harder difficulties did give you more armor by having more enemies and more mutants

No it did not.

The mutants were paid DLC and only the silver spiders actually gave better drops.

Also if you play stage 2 on normal and then replay the stage on Inferno, you will notice that the armor drops are pretty much the same.

352960 No.13914349


Mutants were not paid DLC, you would still get silvers, golds, blues, and reds in the base missions, with higher difficulties replacing normal enemies with mutants, and those mutants dropped more boxes than normal. Inferno would also frequently add in more enemies. Did you even play the game?

Stage 96 on inferno.

If I have to play an endgame stage on Inferno to get increased drop rates then it is not helping at all as I would need to already have the armor to get the armor. Notice that the player had about 95000 armor, which means that he had to cheat to be able to play this stage.


Does that stage have silver spiders because those thing are pretty much the only mutant that has a noticeably better drop rate.

>Does that stage have silver spiders

You asked where the silver spiders were

>f I have to play an endgame stage on Inferno to get increased drop rates then it is not helping at all as I would need to already have the armor to get the armor

It's an online-only mission, which mean you can easily access to it on lobbies.

e194a8 No.13914721


That does not answer the issue of needing the armor to get the armor unless you are suggesting that I get carried by players that have cheated.

If I need to do that to get better armor drop rates then my point about the armor drop rates being bad are correct.

I wonder if this new mech reskin will have any gimmicks that make it stand out from 4.1s Velgata.

352960 No.13914797


Just because you aren't gud doesn't change the fact that harder missions give more drops by having more enemies and mutants, which aren't DLC exclusive. If silvers are the only ones with a noticeably better drop rate then you really don't notice much. Most mutants have noticeably better drop rates, silvers just have exceptionally better drop rates, are fairly common, and less asses to fight than things like red drones and vehicles.

Also, you don't need that much armor to play that mission. That guy was just bad and using his high health to mindlessly brute force it. If you play through the missions normally and make sure to pick up most of the armor then you should have enough to get through this mission by the time you reach it, provided you have the right weapons, a decent team, and a good plan.

I don't get how you can only play a handful of inferno missions and then sit here talking shit like you are a veteran or something when you clearly don't know what you are talking about at all.

Lastly, this is all pretty moot as we are ignoring the fact that the absolute best way to get armor isn't to play missions as intended, but to sit on a spawner for an hour or two before cashing in and repeating. If you absolutely need more armor then either do that or cheat, otherwise just play through the game and let it happen, you'll have more armor than you know what to do with and you won't know where it all came from.

You complain about my point, but then you admit that the best way to grind armor is to sit on a spawner. It is like you have no self awareness.

Nobody sensible wants to play through 300 levels for each class to be able to play inferno.

I can't believe that you are not noticing how ridiculous the grind is.

Since you keep telling me that the armor drop rates increase on higher difficultys then maybe you can tell me how much they increase by, because a tiny increase is not worth mentioning.

Also I still don't get how you don't know that most people complain about the armor grind.

inferno is a difficulty not a new mission, its just the same content except the enemies hit harder and have more hp. You are complaining you can't join a game with peoples with autistic motivation to grind and clear inferno. You are not missing out on anything, there is very little differences clearing easy mode or inferno mode, you did the content already.

all of it because of frame drops, get the newer EDF 4.1. The original title is EDF 2025, if you asking about the one that is "not" EDF, its the spin-off EDF:Insect Armageddon. I wouldn't called it bad, it just different, it doesn't have armor box, the classes are different, you level up by experience point and buy weapon instead of collecting on the field. So peoples that complaint armor box might like it

I don't see how telling you that you could do something counts as being ignorant or supportive of grind. I said you don't need to cheat to play inferno which is entirely true, there are people better than you or I doing 200 armor inferno runs. you could grind your ass off for years if you want, attempt running through with 200 armor, or use cheats for infinite armor, its your game and your choice, do what you want. I started with hard and played through hardest and inferno with a bunch of replaying on the side cause I enjoy the game, and I never farmed for armor cause that's some boring-ass bullshit, it's how I wanted to play and it's what I did. If that's how you want to play then go for it, if not then don't. A game is not a job, play by your own rules, have fun, stop whenever you choose.

I hope you can still easily jump on top of them to have nice places to attach turrets and barriers. Attaching a few turrets to a tank or velgata really helped. I hope they fix the problem of them sliding off too.


Avoid the PS3 version of 2025 though. The loading times are horrible unlike the PS3 version. Also they give you less NPCs making some of the later missions hell. They even changed some missions in 4.1 because they were just absurd in 2025. Like the location for Monster Party originally was in a low building area which is plain suicide.

The game is out now. The menus are pretty easy to navigate so far. The only concern is weapon descriptions which will just take some trial and error to figure out how to use them or learn what they do. The load times are surprisingly fast too.

It looks like Fencers can't dash cancel any attack animations if you just dashed. So you need that dash constantly chip to go fast. The startup for the jump boost is near instant now instead of slightly delayed like in 4.1. However, the cool down is definitely longer. About 1.5x longer I believe. Another thing is that the white ring appears around you when you boost dash/jump. This ring pick up any box it touches so you'll pick up items much easier. The ranger gets this ring when he sprints as well.

Same anon you replied to. I've only beaten the first 2 missions which is a tutorial. Once I get home I'll take screenshots. I ordered it from JP psn. If you don't want to lose a limb buying expensive psn points for yen, you can just order the game from amazon.co.jp. Not counting shipping, I believe it's somewhere around 62 USD.


I'll see if I can make a loose translation of the menus when I get the chance. Don't know moon, but I know what some of the menus do.

After checking some videos I have noticed that if you finish normal difficulty then easy is also considered finished.

Also raising WD health is going to be a lot easier now that we are getting 1:1 on armor pickups. I also saw that different people playing WD have a different amount of max energy so that is now confirmed upgradeable. This is further confirmed by the fact that WD weapons now list energy required instead of energy% required.

You can like the aesthetic if you want, but gameplay wise they do suck.

The artillery ones are fine, but the rapid-fire ones are just a matter of outrangeing them and if you get within their range then they just stunlock you and kill you. Overall a shitty experience either way.

These new ones are way better because you can't outrange them and getting close to them and using a close range weapon is actually a valid tactic.

Every other class either doesn't get stunlocked or avoids their fire entirely.

5f3ce7 No.13932755


The wing diver has short-range weapons with enough physics impact to prevent them from training their guns on you, and enough damage to destroy them in a reasonable time. The fencer should too.

The ranger is fucked though, yes. I guess some of the slug/shotguns have decent knockback, but they all have long reload times and low ammo so they suck.

e194a8 No.13932849


>or avoids their fire entirely

I have already said that outranging them this is shitty gameplay and definitely no fun.

Well maybe they can be fun sometimes if you have the right class and loadout, but they are still very badly balanced and I am glad that they have been replaced by something more balanced.

I can see why people like dealing with them in multiplayer though. Since you can easily destroy them with longrange fire, it allows you feel like you are contributing with a minimal challenge.


That is only if someone else is distracting them so that you can get close enough to shoot them with a rapier. Otherwise they will stunlock and kill you if you try to get close.

Facing Hectors with the Ranger, get the Acid gun and hug their feet. No Hector can survive that for more than seconds, not even on Inferno. Even the blue ones. For a good close range option, you have some shotguns that can cause thousands of points of damage, and they also penetrate armor, so you can get more than one enemy in one shot. Other have a huge ROF and can stunlock them too.

Hell, even the plasma lasers with limited ammo can be quite damn useful in certain levels because of the huge destructive power summed to the stunlock. Just try more options.


>Wing Diver can sing

The game now only needs an options for dual language to became a craziest fest.

Now, I would like to see they adding a new female class. Since the game do have huge maps, I think it would be amazing to see a female class focused on speed, like, imagining playing EDF with girls on full armor with a game play that could be a mix of Vanquish, MGR and Cloudbuilt, high high speeds and wall rides, precise shooting and some melee! Oh, and sexy full armors too.

I would like that. Hell, they could even give them the Super Run attack, like Metroid have. Who knows, maybe one day. But, with one of the new EDF being made with Unreal, It might be possible.

The only class that can get close enough to actually avoid their fire on inferno is the fencer boost dashing with the javelin. Everyone can only get close if he's reloading and only the diver and fencer can chase down a Hector. Once you have a weapon that can constantly lock them down then they can't fire back. Howver, said weapons are usually shotguns for Ranger and their machine guns lack the power to make them bend so far back they can't shoot you. So the safest way to fight them with Rangers is to outrange them. By endgame though, a lysander or stringer solves the Hector problem.

These frogs have better tactics than most people I've dealt with in online games. Also, I can confirm the shit other anons have been saying about shared loot and armor and weapons upgrading when you get the same weapon over and over. It's true, and it makes switching classes much less frustrating when you already have proper gear from playing as another class. The best change has to be the increased item pick up radius when you use your class' dash move. It's not a big radius, but it makes a massive difference in how fast you can clean up the drops when you don't have to be pixel perfectly on top of it.

Mission packs are mandatory as they add ~50 more missions that are all more unique, interesting, and difficult than the base ~100 missions. But if you don't plan on playing too much, hate the concept of 'git gud', are afraid of challenge, or your profession is 'games journalist', then don't bother. There are still plenty of missions in the base game to keep you occupied until the next steam sale.

Pure Decoys are highly suggested as they live significantly longer than normal decoys, can be used on any difficulty, and add functionality to the ranger since he otherwise cannot place decoys.

Volatile napalm is also a good thing to get just for a decent light source in tunnel missions, though it is also good at crowd control.

Seriously don't know why people don't just import. Once you understand what weapon stats do, you can play like it's in english. Only air raider gear needs some trial and error.


There's an ability for the ranger to increase his white ring radius. This also makes it so it's always out there too making collecting boxes in large fights easier. There were a few times I was launched into a medkit too. Speaking of ranger. The motorcycle is actually practical and fun. It's machine guns are very powerful and the bike phases through body parts and enemies making it very deadly. Turning too sharp will make you fall down and ragdoll if going at high speeds.

Besides this game, all I mainly have it for is fighting games and even then those are constantly getting ported to PC. I can completely understand why you don't have one and won't get one. All the "weeb" games are on the Vita and PC anyway. For the longest the PS4 was a machine that just got ports from the Vita and only a year ago did it start really forming a library. Yet I'm still avoiding most of the exclusives.

>Shit framerate

That just comes with EDF. Unless you've only played the PC version, this is to be expected.

>No mouselook

The enemies are so big that I don't see how this is even a complaint outside of just preference. You barely even have to aim in this game. Especially when there are passive abilities to make aiming with heavy fencer weapons easier.

>Paying for online

Kike tier bullshit and I don't blame you for avoiding it. Only got online again just for this game and Gundam Versus when it first came out. Next time I'll get it is probably around when Virtua ON comes out in February.

>Japanese text only so I can't even set up my shit properly

Honestly a non-issue. I've gotten mostly everything figured out and just like 4.1, I have to test weapons out anyway to see how practical they are in combat. Something may sound good stats wise but the way the weapon works can be impractical. Many wing diver weapons are like this. I'm on mission 44 and just finished a stage with an Air Raider.

You forgot to mention PSN cards as well. It comes to the point where ordering from Amazon.co.jp is actually cheaper.

You don't need it, but it doesn't hurt to learn, and Katakana is extremely easy to learn since it is just phonetic English.

I got my PS4 as a gift from someone. He got me it used but I didn't mind. It was because I got him a Vita for his birthday. Either way, the PS4 doesn't compare to the PS3's library. One thing that does upset me though is the stuff stuck on last gen consoles like Hard Corps Uprising. I would love that game to be on PC. Same with Guardian Heroes and Trouble Witches NEO! However I heard that game may get patched so who knows.

Either way, don't waste your money if you don't at least have several games to play. The only reason to get a new console is to soft mod it in the future so you buy it and never touch it. I may do that with the Switch but I only see Xenoblade 2 as the only game worth playing besides Bomberman.


I didn't have many problems controlling them. What did you find bizarre about them? I can test some out if you need to know.


>Is any of the DLC any good?

Just gold shit and Dream C Club decoys. I see no reason to get them. I should learn moon to play those games some day. Mio looks like best girl.

>Do I get anything if I buy the season pack right now?

Nothing really important. Shit's expensive so I say avoid it. Saying that, I say never get season passes as you don't actually know what you're paying for.

They could do Helicopter controls a lot better (I've only played 4.1).

Space: Ascend

Shift: Descend

W/S: Fly forward/backward

A/D: Strafe left/right

Mouse: Orient Helicopter (Rotate up/down/left/right)

Also I wish AI would get into vehicles with you.

Just had my first encounter with the ayys on stage 46. They're some serious business. They hate you getting close to them and will constantly roll away to either their allies or behind buildings which makes it hard to burn their ass or hit them with my hammer. They have a ton of armor and health too. They won't start really flinching until you remove their armor, unlike frogs. They can also regen their limbs too. They carry very fast automatic guns as well so there's that to be wary of. I might have to use my Air Raider for these guys.


No problem.


I wish there was a way to get them to join you in machines. If there is a way, I would like to know too.

Pure Decoys are the single best tool in the game though. There is no reason not to get them.

The new weapons are pretty good, feels like they are giving you a lot more options now.

The rework on wing diver puts more focus on energy management, feels more fun than before.

Actually, it makes her feel a shitton slower. The charge time added to the thunder bows, lances, and other weapons of that nature makes it incredibly hard for wing divers to fight in close quarters with them because by the time you're charged, you've got 6 pepes and 10 ayys raping you with rapid fire shotgun blasts and plasma bombs. Seeing as how close quarters combat is what those weapons are specifically designed for, it kind of makes no sense to do that. The result has been that I'm at mission 50ish right now and still relying on the initial rapier against large groups of weak enemies because anything else is suicide. On the plus side, the mirage weapons are now actually useful beyond easy level and rapid mirage does a decent job of filling a similar role that assault rifles fill for ranger. And speaking of rangers…

I have not seen any so far, but I am only at mission 15.


I kill the pepes by sneaking up on them and hitting them with the dragon lance, then using the buildings to catch them as they turn the corner.

Also the charge time for the power lance is less than 1 sec while the plasma lance from 4.1 had a firing rate of 1 per second. So this one actually fires faster.

With the thunder bows and other charge weapons you just have to come in prepped. She requires a lot more planning now, but it pays off.

Not that I've ever seen and you can just use a blank account if you're worried about it.

However you could also use SmartSteamEmu's built-in networking to play online without using Steam's networking at all.

Mirage weapons were always useful though. decent at flinch-locking swarms of insects, great at anti-air by knocking lots of things around when hit, and absolutely amazing against dragons since they fall to the ground when hit and cant shit fire anymore.

These frogs are really fun to fight. They come in large waves and they drop a lot of goodies.

On mission 29 you get several groups of them coming at you at a time and each group has six of them in it. Sniping them is really fun because you can easily shoot their limbs off which is also a really useful tactic

I am glad that they rebalanced the Wing Diver so that she is more viable at long range. I don't have to worry too much now about running out of energy if I just stand there and snipe.

None as of yet. However many of the trailers were translated. I have a good feeling we'll get the game around spring or summer next year. A PC version on release however is beyond me. I'm sure they noticed the PC sales but they could release it later in hopes people will double dip.

Not new enemies. It's just a clusterfuck on a scale that I've rarely seen in a game, and every time you think you're finally over the crest, the situation gets exponentially worse. Trying it as air raider, I could constantly call in air strikes and vehicles due to how much shit was going on. Still got slaughtered toward the end of the mission, but thankfully, you get to keep a certain percent of armor and weapon pick ups even when you fail (percent is dependent on difficulty level with it dropping 25% each tier until 0% at inferno).

I wonder if it can top Star Eater in 4.1. That mission was pure insanity without satellite beam abuse.


Just encountered the giant pillbugs. This is the silliest and most annoying enemy I've faced so far. They're not as bad as armored grayys but they can constantly hit you on the ground for a quick defeat.

>You get to keep a percentage of the pickups even if you fail

Kinda makes it more casual

But aleviates the grind and gives you an edge and a reason to not get compleyely burned out, especially if you get new weapons, so this is leaning towards the more positive aspect

Going by >>13975280 you don't get shit if you fail on Inferno and (and you barely get anything if you fail on Hardest) that's pretty much where you're gonna fail the most so the effects aren't as big as you think.

Whats the best place to import it from?

Playasia was selling it for $69.99 is there a cheaper place?

EDF5 is awesome, personally I think it is way better than EDF4.1.

I downloaded it and got the season pass.

Also the season pass also gives you all the DLC so don't bother buying that separately.

b716af No.13978863


How much DLC is there?

12, nothing worth getting so far.

They are going to release mission packages eventually, at least I hope so.

It's definitely a better game than EDF 4.1, which was already good to begin with. The main thing is that it fixes some of the annoying stuff from the previous titles, especially when it comes to grinding and completing missions based on difficulties. Trophies no longer require you to kill a certain amount of each enemy type or get all weapons, and if you complete a mission on a high difficulty, such as Hard, the lower difficulties are considered completed too.

Air Raider is more fun to play than just the vehicles. Ranger can sprint, and he can either summon light vehicles or get a passive that either increase the dash speed, give a bigger AoE to grab items, etc. Balam is better as the devs increased its attack speed and gave new melee combos. Fencer NPCs with melee weapons are a lot more useful as they can cancel dash and are more aggressive. Giant frogs and ayy lmaos are quite smart enemies compared to the mindless giant insects and drones. I also liked the missions where you fight enemies in a town covered by the mist, or in a industrial complex at night. Well a lot of improvements and more variety around.

You're still about to experience framerates issues on PS4, but I only recall them when I was against the giant machine walker, a very high amount of spiders throwing their webs at once, or when there are more than 3-4 deroys being present on screen and attacking (though I also experienced the latter on PC in 4.1 but that's due of having a Pentium dual-core CPU)

Oh yeah I ended up buying digitally because I live in Europoor and importing a PS4 game is more likely to get through the customs, if not bought on sale.

e194a8 No.13986831


I mainly bought it for any future mission packs. I was assuming that the other DLC was something that you have to buy separately. That is something that is pretty common season passes.
