Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare celebrates 8 million players with free PvZ coins

Over 8 million Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare players have been served and EA and PopCap are celebrating by giving everyone free coins.


While Electronic Arts and PopCap are hard at work on next year's Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, players are still plowing away at the original Garden Warfare. In fact, this morning, EA and PopCap have announced that over 8 million players have jumped into the original botanical undead shooter.

To celebrate this milestone, Garden Warfare players are getting a special reward. All accounts have been awarded with 80,000 PvZ coins, offering players a chance to play around with some in-game currency. As a reminder, most Garden Warfare characters can be transferred to the upcoming Garden Warfare 2, so use those coins wisely.

EA has also added in a few other stats, for fans of numbers. Over 1.4 billion games have been played, with plants having destroyed over 7 billion zombies. The war is set to continue next year when Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 arrives on February 23.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Is this game popular on PC at all? Or mostly a console game?

        It does okay on PC, but quite often you can't find a server for the less popular game modes. It uses matchmaking only.

        It is a really solid game but the cartoon plants make it less popular among the hardcore crowd.

          Yep, it's a great game, more depth than meets the eye for sure, but only two game modes really have a significant player base. And that was months ago, don't know how it is now.

      Nice, I can not wait for #2 it sounds like it will be amazing. So cool they are doing so much/content gameplay for the Solo players in 2(you don't even have to play with anyone and it will own).

      Very cool, its a nice IP.
