Fans of PopCap games “Plants Vs Zombies” franchise waiting for the upcoming release of Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare will have to wait just a little longer. A recent release from Electronic Arts (PopCap’s parent company) moved the release back a week, placing it at February 25th in North America and February 27th in Europe.
The game, which will be released on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 platforms, is billed by its developers as a 3rd person shooter like no other. It is the only game where you shoot peas from your face, invade the skies as a garlic drone and… get to play as a zombie with a dolphin gun! Crazy Dave also wants you to know that plants will have all-new reinforcements – Ice Pea, Hot Rod Chomper, Future Cactus and Mystic Sunflower – characters outfitted with special abilities, new gameplay mechanics and cool costumes.
A brand new gameplay developer diary launched last week 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 the heroes. Players who can successfully defend the garden through the 11 zombie waves will earn huge rewards.
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.
