E3 2015: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2016

EA has announced Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 will feature new characters, maps, and game modes including a unique single-player experience.


The sequel to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was teased by EA last week by way of a short trailer that had no visuals, only sounds. The audio cues we heard sounded exactly what we’ve experienced in the original third-person shooter, and considering EA already revealed a new Plants vs. Zombies game was expected this holiday season, today’s announcement of a new Garden Warfare game doesn’t come as a big surprise to many.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 marks the first time in the Plants vs. Zombies franchise where the plants are on the offensive as the zombies were successful in their takeover of Suburbia. Both plants and zombies have enlisted new characters from the past, present, and future to join their fight. Players will experience a number of new modes, discover unique gameplay features, and battle through all-new maps.

Some of the new game modes includes a 24-player Herbal Assault mode, which allows players to go on the offensive as the plants and a 4-player co-op mode called Graveyard Ops that has zombies coming together to defend against plants. Players will be able to play multiplayer games with or against friends or play Garden Warfare 2’s unique solo experience by fighting against AI opponents and allies, or bring a friend along in local split-screen co-op.

Garden Warfare 2 will introduce a total of six new character classes and will offer a total of 100 playable character variants. Those who played Garden Warfare will be able to transfer almost every one of their unlocked characters into Garden Warfare 2.

A total of 12 new maps will be available in Garden Warfare 2 that spans from a number of iconic locations within the Plants vs. Zombies universe, including a Time Travel Theme Park to the final frontiet.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 will launch in spring 2016 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
