Today on Twitter and Facebook, Electronic Arts teased a new project called "Grass Effect."

Based on an image posted to the social channels, this project will be a mash-up of the company's Mass Effect and Plants vs. Zombies franchises.

On Facebook, the image is captioned: "Plants vs. … Reapers?" with a hashtag suggesting the game will be discussed in greater detail at next month's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

EA's E3 2013 briefing takes place Monday, June 10, at 1 p.m. PDT. The company plans to use the event to show off its suite of next-generation games like Battlefield 4, Need for Speed: Rivals, and EA Sports titles.

EA will also give a "first look" at its plans for new Star Wars games during the presentation. The company previously suggested that it may be working on an all-new Star Wars Battlefront game.

Sounds like a waste of development time... just like ME3 MP was to ME3. Instead of all that repetitive online play, they could have worked on making the single player game better/longer and improve the original ending.

Why didn't they announce Plants vs Zombies 2?  What is this bullcrap?

Dead Face?  What a stupid title for a video game.  Sounds like something Crytek would come up with..

Nazara: "We are eternal. The pinnacle of evolution and existence. Before us, you are nothing. Your extinction is inevitable. We are the end of everything." " Starchild: "LOL! I Created them". 

Nazara: "WE created the mass relays and the citadel." Starchild:"I am part of the citadel (which also a mass relay) and I created the reapers.

Nazara:" We are each a nation - independent, free of all weakness." Starchild:"LOL!!! I control them

It's as if they're trying real hard to come up with something fresh and funny but failing terribly with just the worst choices...

PLEASE EA, don't screw up PvZ.  It's one of the few good casual games that doesn't involve flinging birds around.

ending 1: you die and can destroy all zombies but the neighbor hood will be trashed and most of your neighbors will die

ending 2:you die and you can control all the zombies but u become undead yourself, u lose ur soul but u keep ur memories and live forever as a corpse

ending 3: you die and you merge all life with the zombies and everyone becomes half dead half alive and no one will die anymore even if they want to, so you force immortality and zombiness on everyone

I really hope this is a joke but then again I would not put it past EA after some of their methods . Way to ruin the Mass Effect name even more and drag it through the mud not that it hasn't been already. Nice moves EA.

The awesome writers of the first 2 left so therefore the game sucked balls.

What do you mean by "ruin the Mass Effect name even more and drag it through the mud"?  I'm just not sure what EA is doing wrong in this particular situation...

@FollowY0urBliss@SpartanSA89Not including the microtransactions that will no doubt in the game, play the first two games and what about all the choices we made it came down to a choice of 3 colours yes im aware we had the extended  cut dlc but if the writing wasn't so lazy there would not have been any need for the extended dlc in the first place. Bad work on Bioware and EA's half
