Insect Armageddon continues to follow the rich history of casual fun and addictive gameplay that made the franchise a cult classic.

The Campaign mode that lets up to three players team up online to battle the insects and aliens across a completely destroyable city.

In addition, the game also features a six-player Survival mode that pits a human squad against a nonstop onslaught of the largest enemies the aliens have to offer. New Detroit’s giant bug problem is unavoidable, and mankind’s last hope lies with the Earth Defense Force to defend the world from the insect swarm, even if it means blowing up the entire city as part of the extermination process.
