Time to get your hands dirty: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is hitting both Xbox One and Xbox 360 in February, confirms EA. In case you missed it, this is the third person shooter interpretation of the fan-favourite franchise, coming with a focus on online play.
Last we heard from the shooter was back in September, when it was revealed to be multiplayer only, and we were promised a nebulous “2014” release.
Looks like it’s headed our way sooner rather than later, promising a four-person co-op mode alongside two 12v12 online competitive modes – Garden & Graveyards, where you must stop zombies from turning your backyard into a cemetery; and Team Vanquish, a classic team deathmatch. There’s also a smartglass-enabled offline co-op mode, and if you’ve got Kinect plugged in, you’ll be able to jump around to augment the boss battles.
While we don’t know when the game will hit PC (“later” is the most specific we’ve heard), we do know the cost. EA and Microsoft are releasing Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare at a lower price point than most games on the market, at just US$30 for Xbox 360 and US$40 for Xbox One and PC. International gamers, sorry, that price probably will not reflect how much it’ll set you back locally, but we’re all crossing our fingers.
