New Plants Vs. Zombies Shooter Announced For PS4 And Xbox One

The zombies are coming!


Just days after EA quietly announced Plants Vs. Zombies 3, the publisher has now begun whispering about what looks to be a new Garden Warfare. Over the weekend the company sent out invites to a playtest for a "new PvZ shooter" codenamed "Picnic."

"You are invited to participate in the new PvZ shooter (codename Picnic) playtest on Xbox One or PS4," said EA's email, which was sent to a GameSpot employee, among select other members of EA's playtesting program. "Made by the team that created PvZ: Garden Warfare, the Picnic closed alpha will give players a first glimpse into the new game."

Now Playing: Two New Plants Vs. Zombies Games Revealed - GS News Update

EA has previously listed a new Plants Vs. Zombies shooter for release this fall. Another mainline PvZ game was announced a few days ago, too: Plants Vs. Zombies 3 is currently in the pre-alpha testing phase, though a final release date has not been confirmed.

The first Garden Warfare spin-off launched for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC in 2014, five years after the original Plants Vs Zombies was first released. A sequel then followed in 2016.
