REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
PopCap Games, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA), today
released Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare, a
best-in-class multiplayer shooter that combines the power of the
Frostbite™ 3 engine with the fresh humor, wild action and vibrant
landscapes of the incredibly popular Plants vs. Zombies series. Plants
vs. Zombies Garden Warfare lets players choose a side and wage
all-out war on their plant or zombie enemies in a variety of gameplay
modes and with a jaw-dropping arsenal of outrageous weapons.
“Creating a shooter based on the Plants vs. Zombies franchise was
something few people would have ever expected, but we think the real
surprise will come when fans get their hands-on the game,” said Brian
Lindley, Producer on Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare. “While
it’s a totally different genre for the series, Plants vs. Zombies
Garden Warfare is every bit as accessible as the original game and
offers the same level of depth, strategy and insane fun fans expect from
the Plants vs. Zombies universe.”
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare features adored favorites in
the series, such as the Peashooter and Sunflower, along with a new cast
of characters including Ice Cactus, Hot Rod Chomper and all the Zombies
players can get their hands on. Players can jump into three distinct
modes including two 12 vs. 12 competitive multiplayer modes called
“Garden & Graveyards” and “Team Vanquish,” or a four-player co-operative
mode called “Garden Ops.” An amazingly deep set of customization options
gives players an opportunity to personalize plants and zombies with fun
costumes, items, hats and more, some of which give all-new abilities to
each of the characters.
Two additional modes will be available exclusively on Xbox® One, the
all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The first
allows for local cooperative split screen so players can team up with a
friend on the couch, and the second is Boss Mode which allows for
a third friend to join via a SmartGlass device to support their teams
with a top-down view of the battlefield from where they can drop health,
artillery strikes and more. Boss mode is also available on Kinect for a
full screen experience.
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is now available for the Xbox
One and the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment systems in North
America. A digital version of the game can be downloaded for Xbox
One or Xbox
360. A PC version will be available at a later date. Join the Plants
