Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare Blasts Its Way Onto Xbox One and Xbox 360 on February 18

Powered by Frostbite 3, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare Combines a Best-In-Class Multiplayer Shooter Experience with the Fresh Humor of the Plants vs. Zombies Hit Series


REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prepare your peashooters! PopCap Games, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA), today announced that Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare will be shipping for Xbox One all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system on February 18, 2014 in North America and February 20, 2014 in Europe. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is an action-packed third-person multiplayer shooter that puts players in the shoes—or roots—of their favorite characters from the popular Plants vs. Zombies franchise.

“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 on 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.”

Powered by the advanced Frostbite™ 3 engine, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare features stunning, three-dimensional worlds, blooming with vibrant colors and unique landscapes. The game has more than 10 maps and three distinct modes including two 12v12 competitive multiplayer modes called Garden & Graveyards and Team Vanquish, and a four-player co-operative mode called Garden Ops. In Garden & Graveyards, plants must defend their garden bases from zombies attempting to turn them into spooky graveyards. Players can also square off in Team Vanquish as they try to send the other team to the compost pile. For gamers that just want to have a fun time with their friends, they can work together in Garden Ops battling off waves of zombies on the attack.

On Xbox One, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare includes two extra modes including local cooperative split screen and Boss Mode. With split screen, players can team up with a friend on the couch to fight against an endless horde of zombies. In Boss Mode, gamers can utilize their Kinect or a SmartGlass device in any of the other gameplay modes to support their teams. 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.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is available for pre-order at major retailers nationwide and at http://www.origin.com for $39.99 for Xbox One and $29.99 for Xbox 360. A PC version will be available at a later date.

It's pretty clear that EA is putting their full backing behind this over Battlefield 4...

hmm looks ok but $39.99 :/ does not seem it would be worth that much

i am very interested in this ever since the epic reveal trailer lol

wait till its closer to completion...looks like only 8 characters for now. pvz tower defense has much more, I'm sure they'll throw more characters, show more maps other than the one here...and maybe it will then justify the price

Looks better than that game everyone was going to be the killer title for One, namely Ryse!

Looks better? As in visually? Or do you mean gameplay wise? Cause yeah then i can agree. Is this game not coming to PS3 and PS4 at all or something? I could swear it was only timed exclusive for MS?
Commented on 2013-11-22 01:06:32
I think this looks awesome tbh. Shame it ain't on PS4

Both games are no where near the amazing brilliance of DayZ though :D

what the hell are you talking about? troll.

if you've played the beloved pvz 1 & 2 you'll see how great the game is...but even if you haven't, there are a lot more plants & zombies then the 8 they showed here. Like at least a good 30 more characters (all unique) that can be added to THIS shooter.

I did some Googling and it really seems this indeed won't be coming to PS4, or no mention of a PS4 version so far. Weird that nobody mentions this one when talking about the X1 exclusives.

Is it really THAT weird? Ever since EA bought Popcap it's been expected for them to ruin it like BioWare.

Well, Ryse /looks/ miles better, but this'll probably be more fun. But there are other games on the One, and Ryse is one of the weaker links. And it's not even all that awful. Just a bit boring. I'd still rather take Killer Instinct or DR3 or Forza over this, but those are all full price games.

You don't know me, move along please :)

Anyway enough of my drunken, stupid comments. Will most definitely pick this up on PC when it hits as i love PvZ's :)

Guys this is purely a timed exclusive and was announced as this at E3. Even Microsoft say it is coming to Xbox first. I don't think EA will be doing deals like this with Microsoft in the future. This contract was agreed well before the Xbox worldwide backlash of May/June 2013.
