The hotly anticipated shooter based in the cartoony PvZ world is on the way to Microsoft’s console family in February.
More Brainzzzzz… A brand new gameplay developer diary launched today that showcases four-player co-op gameplay mode Garden Ops where the Yeti and Giga-Gargantuar bosses make their debut in Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare! In Garden Ops, you play in squads of four working together to defend a garden base until Crazy Dave arrives to extract our heroes. Successfully defend the garden through the 11 zombie waves and earn huge rewards.
One of the most anticipated games of 2014, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare features three distinct modes – two 12v12 competitive multiplayer modes called Garden & Graveyards and Team Vanquish, and the four-player co-operative mode 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.
Honestly, I didn’t think that Plants vs Zombies made a heck of a lot of sense as a shooter. Tower defense is great and all- but as a third-person shooter? Not so much. But from the extended b-roll footage we just saw, it’s actually looking a whole lot of fun.
PvZ kind of automatically gets off on the right foot, which is a big plus for Garden Warfare, as it has built-in attraction with it’s light cartoon looks and silly themes. Pretty much everybody who knows gaming in any form and on any platform knows the title pretty well too, so there’s an audience there before the third-person shooter version even sees release. I do have to add though, that it doesn’t look like developer Popcap really rested on any of those laurels from the amount of work that is obviously going into Garden Warfare.
You’ll find all your favorite plants and zombies included in Garden Warfare in some way as well as some new additions like Ice Pea, Hot Rod Chomper, Future Cactus and Mystic Sunflower. You’ll also find a zombie with a dolphin gun stuck in there somewhere… yes a dolphin gun. Whatever that means.
And whatever it might be, you won’t have to wait all that much longer to find out as Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare sneaks onto the Xbox One and 360 on February 25th from EA and Popcap Games.
