It’s been a while, so let’s check in on Sandlot’s upcoming budget third-person shooter Earth Defense Force 2025. This latest trailer pulls out all the stops with the game’s Fencer unit, an unstoppable force in the world of giant ant slaughter.
Best described as a heavy-armor unit, the Fencer can dual wield massive weapons for twice the firepower. These metallic monsters equip weapons far too large for their normal infantry comrades. Hammers, spears, miniguns, this “Samurai of the 21st Century,” as the glorious new trailer dubs him, is simply “strong. Too strong.”
Be sure to watch the new trailer and revel in its greatness. Never has there been a bigger statement for teaching studios how to balance a reasonable budget to make a fun game. AAA studios could learn a lot from Sandlot. Earth Defense Force 2025 is the real deal, and I’ll glad follow the Fencer into battle any day of the week.
Earth Defense Force 2025 will be released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Feb. 4, 2014. E.D.F! E.D.F!
