D3 Publisher has new information and screenshots for Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain introducing the Raidship, Storm Ants, Queen Ant, and more.
Get the details below.
A gigantic flying object over 200 meters in length.
What appear to be the bow and aft sides are symmetric in appearance, but the center area has a different design on the left and right sides: giant creatures are released from the circular side, and ravagers from the triangular side.
For this reason, this is believed to be the enemies’ transport ship, but because it releases Aggressors heavier than the Raidship itself, it is believed that rather than being “physically transported,” the enemies are being teleported in from somewhere else.
The Raidship itself also has the ability to teleport, suddenly appearing in the sky over a country, but disappearing just as soon, foiling any attempts by the EDF to deliver coordinated attacks or ambushes. The EDF must always resort to being on the defensive when one appears.
Raidships have an extremely durable exterior, and cannot be destroyed by attacks from personal-use weapons.
The Raidships are equipped with weapons of their own, so it is dangerous to remain stationary while attacking them.
What is being experimented in the underground facility of the Rebellion?
In the research facility of the Kindred Rebellion which uses the cavity of a city underground, there exist gigantic ants which do not attack human beings!?
These huge creatures were actually bred there. Gems were collected from these huge creatures that were bred. Also, there exist some kind of PA Gear that controlled the gigantic ants!
The Rebellion was breeding gigantic creatures there. They also gathered Gems from the huge creatures that were bred by them. More surprisingly, a human figure that was actually on these huge creatures was also confirmed. Did the Rebellion obtained some kind of forbidden power to take control over the biological weapons of the enemy Aggressors? And what is this unknown PA Gear which handled the huge creatures?
Storm Ants that are controlled by the PA Gear which the Kindred Rebellion developed by themselves. They are being remote-controlled by burying a control device giving off special pheromone and an electric pulse in the brains of the Storm Ants. Also, their physical abilities are improved by activating their cranial nerve system. They are painted differently so they can be recognized by other enemy Storm Ants.
In addition, the technology to operate huge creatures is highly classified and only few executives in the Kindred Rebellion know about this fact. There are rumors which state that Rebellion’s chief Gideon made contact and learned from an underground organization which studies the technology of the Aggressors.
The Ants of the Rebellion are as strong as the native Storm Ants of the Aggressors. Not only they pour strong acid to their enemies, but they also use and hit their gigantic chins to their opponents. Furthermore, because their cranial nerve systems are stimulated and their physical abilities are improved, more attention would be required when facing them.
Beyond the underground facility of the Rebellion, a cave which is lead to further basement has been discovered…!?
The Blast Unit encounters many huge creatures while going further inside the cave. What have they seen at the final stage?
–Discovered a gigantic egg?
Blast Unit goes ahead through the cavity under the ground to the depths. Because of the considerable depth, the electric wave died and so as the communication with the strategy commander headquarters. As the military unit kept going deeper underground, they discovered a huge egg shaped object.
The Rebellion was breeding gigantic creatures. An egg was found in the depths of the secret base. There must be some kind of a relation between these two facts.
—Discovered a huge pit, and…
The military unit discovers a huge pit considered to go to the most deep part in the cave. If going even further, there’s only bad feelings to that….
Closer starts to come very close to the huge pit down below. An especially gigantic figure can be seen from the very bottom of the pit!?
The queen of the gigantic creatures appears at last.
The queen of the huge creatures which produces Storm Ants.
Her full length is more than 50 meters, which means she has the largest size in an insect type huge creatures.
The queen of the huge creatures which produces Storm Ants. Her full length is more than 50 meters, which means she has the largest size in an insect type huge creatures. Since she usually hides herself deep in the ground, she seems to be harmless unless she comes out from her nest. However, since she lays from several hundreds to several thousands eggs per day, she cannot be left unattended. She must be targeted for top priority extermination.
Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain is due out for PlayStation 4 in 2019.
