PopCap’s Plants vs Zombies spinoff, Garden Warfare, has a release date. The game will be hitting Xbox 360 and Xbox One on February 20. While a PC version is planned, it doesn’t have a release date yet. The game is up for pre-order at retailers and Origin. The PC version has a price tag of Rs 1,999, the Xbox 360 version will cost Rs 2,500 and the Xbox One version will cost Rs 3,560.
“Gamers across the world have fallen in love with the Plants vs Zombies characters and now they’ll get to see them in an entirely new light,” said Brian Lindley, Producer of Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare. “Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare give the series’ fans and shooter players a fun, new experience that they’ll both enjoy as they blast, chomp and laugh their way through co-op and head-to-head online action.”
An obvious parody of Call of Duty
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare is an FPS made using DICE’s Frostbite 3 engine, which impressed us in Battlefield 4. It will feature vibrant and colourful worlds, keeping with the Plants vs Zombies art style, and will have more than 10 maps and three game modes, two of which will feature 12vs12 competitive multiplayer. The competitive modes are named Garden and Graveyards and Team Vanquish. The third mode will have co-op gameplay, and is named Garden Ops.
The Xbox One version of the game features two extra game modes, including local split-screen co-op and Boss Mode. In split-screen co-op, players can team up with a friend on the couch to fight against an endless horde of zombies. In Boss Mode, players can use the Kinect or a SmartGlass device in any of the other gameplay modes to support their teams, much like Commander Mode in Battlefield 4. Players have a top-down view of the battlefield and can help out their teammates with intel, health drops, revive stations and explosive artillery strikes.
