Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, the Frostbite 3-powered, multiplayer-only, ‘budget’ third-person shooter from PopCap games, has been announced by publisher EA to hit the Xbox One and Xbox 360 this February 18.
“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 give 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.”
Due to the lack of any sort of single player content, PvZ Garden Warfare will be priced at a very modest $39.99 USD on the Xbox One or $29.99 USD on the Xbox 360. The PC version will be available at a later date. But at that price, and based on the quirky, fun-filled gameplay shown off in the game’s debut trailer, we won’t be surprised if we find ourselves recommending this title to all shooter fans come February.
The game will boast more than 10 maps and three multiplayer modes including 12v12 competitive modes called Garden & Graveyards and Team Vanquish, as well as a four-player co-op mode called Garden Ops.
On Xbox One, PvZGarden Warfare will not only feature two extra game modes including local cooperative split screen and Boss Mode, but players will also be able to utilize the Kinect or their SmartGlass device to support their teams.
Check out nearly 10 minutes of Plants vs. Zombies 24-player Team Vanquish multiplayer gameplay with commentary from PopCap Executive Producer Brian Lindley.
