Electronic Arts has revealed a rather mysterious image late last night teasing what could possibly be Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare for Sony's PlayStation systems.

With a homage to the iconic Sly Cooper raccoon thief, the image seems to speak for itself with the words "Fly Shooter; Shooters Just Got Weird" and an accompanying picture of a pea shooter dressed as Sly himself.

Garden Warfare launched earlier this year on Xbox 360 and Xbox One with a PC version also in the works. Despite the teasing image, EA has yet to make any official PlayStation announcements regarding the plant shooter. We predict any official announcement to be made during Sony or EA's E3 2014 conferences, which is only a few weeks away.

After successfully launching across the Xbox brand earlier this year, developer PopCap Games has today announced that their multiplayer shooter Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare will be arriving on PC come June 24th.
“We’ve had an amazing response from players since launching the Xbox platforms, and can’t wait for PC players to join the party this summer,” said Brian Lindley, Producer on Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare. “The PC version has all the great content that we have put out since launch like Garden Variety and Zomboss Down for players to enjoy from the start.”
PC players will be able to gain access to the full game's four distinct gameplay modes including 12 vs. 12 competitive multiplayer called “Gardens & Graveyards” and “Team Vanquish,” as well as 8v8 Gnome Bomb. The four-player co-operative game mode "Garden Ops" will also be available to play, plus PC users will gain access to all the content from the Garden Variety Pack & Zomboss Down DLC.

Those keen to throw their money down ahead of the launch can find pre-orders through Origin, with a Digital Deluxe Edition available that includes two Booster Packs, in-game coins and an exclusive character customisation pack.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare's latest expansion, Zomboss Down, is now available on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, developer PopCap Games announced.

Zomboss Down is the second free expansion for Garden Warfare, following March's Garden Variety add-on. The western-themed DLC includes eight new characters, such as the Law Pea and Sun Pharaoh, as well as a new multiplayer map for the Gardens and Graveyards mode called Cactus Canyon. The expansion also bumps up the level cap from 20 to 30.

You can check out a trailer for Zomboss Down below, and find the full patch notes through the developer's Facebook page. Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is currently available only on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, though a PC port is planned sometime soon.

Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare will receive its first free DLC pack tomorrow, in the form of the Garden Variety DLC. The pack features a new map, game mode, and 24 new abilities for all classes.
The Garden Variety Pack features 24 new ability upgrades, three for each class including Sunflower’s Solar Flare Beam, Chomper’s Super Goop which cements zombies in place and the All-Star Zombie’s Ultra Tackle. These upgrades give players even more load out options for battle in the fun-dead field. The Garden Variety Pack also introduces the explosive Gnome Bomb mode that challenges plants and zombies to work together to destroy each other’s reinforced garden or graveyard. Players can explore a new funtastic map, and encounter a band of fresh Pirate Zombies, such as the Map Pirate Zombie who shields himself with a treasure map, in Sharkbite Shores and Port Scallywag.
The Garden Variety DLC will be the first of many DLC packs currently in-development, though PopCap's senior franchise marketing manager Gary Clay has previously stated that all DLC will be free, a nice change from their usual mobile-centred business plans.

The DLC is scheduled to hit Xbox One and Xbox 360 sometime later this afternoon, and will be completely free to download.

You might consider the tower defense foundation of Plants vs Zombies, removed and replaced with third-person shooter mechanics, a slight against the IP and the genre. And you'd be right to also just assume the whole thing, as is represented in Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, microtransactions included, one giant cash-in.

But it never means that a game can't still be fun, even if you can buy stuff to help you in-game, as long as it's not required in order to enjoy the experience. This is what Jickle discovered in his review of the game, which he now finds himself heavily drawn back to, even after finishing his in-depth analysis.

PopCap Games has today announced that their action-packed third-person multiplayer shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will be making its leafy way to Xbox One and Xbox 360 come January 2014.
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.
For those looking to grab it on the newly released Xbox One, you'll find 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.

“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.”

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will be available for Xbox One and Xbox 360 on February 20th, with a PC version coming sometime later.

PopCap Games has revealed in a recent interview with ShackNews that their upcoming third-person shooter Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare will not be including any single-player campaigns.

Instead, players will find that PopCap has included up to four player support in the co-operative mode and up to 24 players in competitive modes. Garden Warfare will also be priced as a "budget" title, with PopCap outlining a USD$39.99 tag on Xbox One and a USD$29.99 on Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

Justin Wiebe, the game's creative director, has also outlined that PopCap are aiming to develop additional content outside of the initial launch, though it is unclear if this will be paid or free DLC.

"We definitely want to build on the game once it's launched," Wiebe told ShackNews. "We're definitely taking a cue from Plants vs Zombies 2. Using DLC and new content updates, we want to keep players engaged in the long haul."

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is expected to be released in 2014 on Xbox One, PC and Xbox 360, with other platform releases soon after.

PopCap Games has kicked off EA's press conference with the announcement of Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, a third-person co-op multiplayer title coming exclusively to Xbox One and Xbox 360.

Reminiscent of previous FPS games like Battlefield and Call of Duty, Plants vs Zombies allows you to choose between a variety of iconic characters, but also includes the ability to "plant" NPCs just like in the previous arcade titles.

The title includes the usual humour of the series, especially the "boss battles" which featured a disco zombie complete with retro introduction (and disco ball). Players will be able to work together to defeat the zombie waves through various roles.
