One day after teasing that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, PopCap's "weird" FPS, would be coming to PlayStation consoles, publisher Electronic Arts has now made it official. EA announced today that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will be available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on August 19. The company also added that the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions have together sold over 1 million copies.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare runs on the Frostbite 3 engine, the same technology that powers games like Battlefield 4 and Need for Speed: Rivals, and runs in 1080p at 60fps on PS4. It originally launched in February for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and it comes to PC next month.
Producer Brian Lindley said in a statement that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare players have so far already "vanquished" more than 400 million plants and zombies. "We can't wait for PlayStation gamers to add to this total," he said.
PlayStation gamers can preorder Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare today to receive two digital card packs and PlayStation-exclusive customization packs for characters in the form of Hat Packs based on Sony's franchises like Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper, and Fat Princess. The game also supports Remote Play, meaning you can start playing on PS3 or PS4 and then move to PlayStation Vita without interruption.
The PlayStation 4 version of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will also support split-screen multiplayer and Boss Mode, which was previously available exclusively on Xbox One. It also includes all previously released DLC, like the Garden Variety and Zomboss Down expansions.
EA added microtransactions to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare in April. For more on Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, be sure to read GameSpot's review.
