Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare

PopCap Games' Plants vs. Zombies mobile gaming franchise has been an unstoppable juggernaut on mobile devices. The strategy/tower defense theme that this series is known for is getting ditched in favor of a different type of mechanic for the series' latest game - 3rd-person shooting. There's plenty of information surrounding this new multiplayer shooter, which is why we're here to provide you with all of it.

Here's everything you need to know about Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare.


1. The Game is Focused on Co-Op and Competitive Multiplayer 3rd-Person Shooting

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare changes up the formula by adopting a 3rd-person shooting mechanic that comes alive with co-op/competitive gameplay modes. This mutliplayer-only title will allow up to 24 players for online play and a 4 player co-op mode. Each player can control their own class of plants/zombies and engage in huge skirmishes across wide open locales. One mode lets players pick a plant class and deal with waves of zombies, which leads into even more zombie waves or a final boss encounter.


2. It's Being Developed With The Frostbite 3 Game Engine

This title is being published by Electronic Arts, a publishing gaming company that's known for its most recent video game development engine - Frostbite 3. This engine is most known for powering Battlefield 3. This engine is being utilized to develop these upcoming EA games:

- Dragon Age: Inquisition
- Star Wars: Battlefront
- Mass Effect (Sequel)
- Mirror's Edge (Prequel)


3. Three Game Modes Have Been Revealed

GameStop has revealed the three multiplayer game modes that have been unveiled for the game thus far (the video above features GARDENS & GRAVEYARDS gameplay):

- GARDENS & GRAVEYARDS: n this massive 24-player mode, plants must defend their garden bases from zombie invasions - and you get to play either side! To capture a base, the zombies must conquer the garden and raise their tombstone - the more zombies that are in the garden area, the faster the tombstone rises. Once a base is captured, the combat shifts to the next garden objective

- TEAM VANQUISH: In the second mighty 24-player competitive mode, players square off directly and try to send the other team to the compost pile. Pick your side, powerful plant or fun-loving zombie, and let the botanical battle begin

- GARDEN OPS: This four-player co-operative mode is ideal for gamers that want to team up with their friends. The objective is simple - the Plant team must defeat waves and waves of zombies and zombie bosses like Gargantuar who are on the attack. Like in all modes, teamwork is crucial if you want your brains to survive
