Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare split-screen co-op is exclusive to Xbox One

The class-based multiplayer shooter is locking off a common feature exclusively for the Xbox One version: split-screen co-op.

Boss Mode is already exclusive to the Xbox One version of Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare. But the class-based multiplayer shooter is also locking off a common feature exclusively for the Xbox One version: split-screen co-op.

Co-op is essentially horde mode, as it puts two players against increasingly difficult waves of zombies. Every few waves, players will have to deal with bosses, determined by a slot machine. "If you are lucky you may get a bonus, but it will usually be a variety of powerful zombies that will take everything you have to defend against," EA explained in their blog.

      EA continues to sell out and trip over themselves. Release completely buggy games, force always-online for single player centric games, and now this. And people continue to give them money by truckloads.

        You can't really put the full blame on EA for this. Microsoft has a lot to do with this move and the fact that Garden Warfare is exclusive to the Xbox brand at all.

          its ultimately EA's decision to take MS's money and make the game exclusive. its really no different than any other platform exclusive game.

            That's what I'm saying about how this is no different from any other platform exclusive. But you still cannot solely blame EA, a company, for wanting money if MS is going to offer them a lot for it.

            MS makes an offer too good to pass on and it's EA's fault? I thought you guys were all about making money from games here.

              This is typical entitled gamer rants...

              Wants everything cheap, doesn't care if the devs get revenue to continue making games. Cry when the devs do exclusive deals to get revenue to keep making games. Starts "boycott this EA game on steam", buys the game anyway.

      Wonder if all this lockdown will apply to the PC version.

      Yes, because only the awesome power of the Xbox One can handle split screen plants vs zombies. Or was it because Microsoft developed and created plants vs zombies? Either way, I'm sure there is a perfectly practical reason for this, other than paying money to restrict games in order to sell consoles.

        I think it's "Xbox" exclusive, which means 360 and PC as well...

          Has PC become simultaneously enough of a revenue source for EA that they want to include in their console exclusive deals while Microsoft sees Sony as their console competition and either ignores the PC or recognizes that there is no point competing with themselves? I find it super interesting that Xbox exclusive seems to include PC in all of Microsoft's and EA's deals.

            Microsoft doesn't seem to think the PC will steal console sales, I think... or it could be, you know, they make Windows...

      Is split screen Co-Op really a common feature for the PC? I know a few indie games have it but I've never seen it as a main feature of PC gaming the way it is for console. There is a good chance they were never including it in the PC version in the first place and the 360 might have trouble rendering split screen without lowering the resolution or hurting the frame rate too much and so they announced what is just an accident as a feature for the Xbox One instead of something that's lacking on the 360.

        As far as xbox360 being able to render split screen- it's plants vs zombies not Crysis.

      Not sure why people are getting so mad. How many games (not indie games) are split screen on PC?
