Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare combines a best-in-class multiplayer shooter experience with the fresh humor of the Plants vs. Zombies hit series; and we have release info, a few screenshots, and a gameplay walk-through with PopCap Executive Producer Brian Lindley to share.
From the Press Release:
Prepare your peashooters! PopCap Games, a division of Electronic Arts Inc., announced that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will be shipping for Xbox One all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system on February 18, 2014, in North America and February 20, 2014, in Europe.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is an action-packed third-person multiplayer shooter that puts players in the shoes—or roots—of their favorite characters from the popular Plants vs. Zombies franchise.
“Gamers across the world have fallen in love with the Plants vs. Zombies characters, and now they’ll get to see them in an entirely new light,” said Brian Lindley, Producer on Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. “Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare gives the series’ fans and shooter players a fun, new experience that they’ll both enjoy as they blast, chomp, and laugh their way through co-op and head-to-head online action.”
Powered by the advanced Frostbite 3 engine, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare features stunning, three-dimensional worlds, blooming with vibrant colors and unique landscapes. The game has more than 10 maps and three distinct modes, including two 12v12 competitive multiplayer modes called Garden & Graveyards and Team Vanquish, and a four-player co-operative mode called Garden Ops. In Garden & Graveyards, plants must defend their garden bases from zombies attempting to turn them into spooky graveyards. Players can also square off in Team Vanquish as they try to send the other team to the compost pile. For gamers that just want to have a fun time with their friends, they can work together in Garden Ops battling off waves of zombies on the attack.
On Xbox One, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare includes two extra modes, including local cooperative split screen and Boss Mode. With split screen, players can team up with a friend on the couch to fight against an endless horde of zombies. In Boss Mode, gamers can utilize their Kinect or a SmartGlass device in any of the other gameplay modes to support their teams. Players have a top-down view of the battlefield and can help out their teammates with intel, health drops, revive stations, and explosive artillery strikes.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is available for pre-order at major retailers nationwide and at Origin.com for $39.99 for Xbox One and $29.99 for Xbox 360. A PC version will be available at a later date.
