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.
