Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare features Battlefield-inspired mode

Let's just hope this garden warfare isn't riddled with a bug infestation.

by

Third-person shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will feature a multiplayer mode called Gardens and Graveyards that's been based off Battlefield's Rush and Conquest modes, Popcap Games has announced.

The 24-player multiplayer mode will also include a hint of the series' traditional tower defence gameplay. Gardens and Graveyards will feature the zombie team attempt to capture bases on the map, with the plants team trying to put a stop to the undead advance. If a base is captured by the zombies, the area will turn into a graveyard and the plants team will have to retreat to the next location.

Popcap is making the game in the Frostbite 3 engine, and the class-based shooter will also feature a four-player co-op alongside its competitive multiplayer.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will be released for Xbox One and Xbox 360 on February 18, 2014.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare features Battlefield-inspired mode (that will be broken at launch and patched later)

Inspired Battlefield modes eh? Does that included system crashes, sound drops, and save file deletion? Are those "functions" included as a pre-order bonus?

Didn't think it was possible to turn a game like Plants vs Zombies into a CoD clone.

They're already making a CoDdlefield clone... They didn't even bother to come up with clever names or abilities for the zombie classes!

I hope that EA has no input on how this game is , if they do they will mess it up. Because EA is associated with this game, I'm going to wait a few months to see how it  is before buying. Look at the crap that has went on with BF4.

This game reminds me of the games from years ago where there is no story, they are just fun to play with friends and laugh.

Please make it a real game and not some FTP piece of microtransaction crap.

Can Xbox One play with 360 peeps?

This game is getting more and more interesting...and it comes out three weeks before Titanfall. Might have to get it to tide me over

@obsequies Somebody on Gamespot played it and there is a 9 minute video  of the gameplay with them explaining it. Looks like a lot of fun. Some basic concept as battlefield, but much slower and comedic.

@Smokin105 I thought it was pretty funny. And if I didn't find it funny there's no need to let such a little detail ruin my experience.

@Smokin105 Meh. Some people are into that. 

Also, it's funny and fits the style of the zombies perfectly.

I don't really care. The game looks fun.

@spartanx169x @obsequies yeah I'm not going to jump on the ea hatecart for this. I'll get it on pc if its good and not a bad kind of childish
