First PvZ: Garden Warfare Balance Update Now Live, Patch Notes Released

It appears that the folks at PopCap HD had a few tricks up their sleeve when they were having server maintenance last night for Plant vs Zombies: Garden Warfare.

There was a rather sneaky balance patch being implemented server side during maintenance. The update balances Gardens And Graveyards by reducing the capture time throughout each map. Also, the All-Star class received a much needed buff along with the coin boost, which we touched on earlier.

Check out the patch notes below, courtesy of lead gameplay designer C-JO:

Balance Patch Notes

  • More Coins! Yes more coins are now awarded in both Team Vanquish Mode and Gardens & Graveyards.
