Play Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare Your Way

It’s been two months since we launched Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare, and we are really pleased and humbled to see how much players are enjoying the game. Your support and feedback has made us realize how much you really love Plants vs. Zombies, and as the creators of the game, there’s nothing that makes us happier.

With the launch of Zomboss Down last week, we have continued to improve balance and fun within the game and provide more ways to earn coins during battle:

  • Gardens & Graveyards scoring has been overhauled to better balance scores between plants and zombies.
  • Gnome Bomb overall coin rewards have been increased.
  • We've increased coin rewards in Garden Ops based on difficulty played.
  • ‘Solo’ and ‘2-Player’ bonuses in Garden Ops have been introduced.
  • Numerous new coin rewards for support actions, assisted vanquishes and defending or attacking mode objectives, and using abilities in Boss Mode.

Also, with the Zomboss Down content update, we expanded the Garden Warfare experience even further with a bunch of great new content:

  • Cactus Canyon: a new Gardens & Graveyards map.
  • 8 new playable character variations.
  • Over 200 new customization items.
  • Zomboss Downsticker pack, featuring exclusive new character items and customizations.
  • New plant reinforcements: Bamboo Shoot, Fire Peashooter and Ice Peashooter.
  • Max character level increased from 20 to 30.
  • 10 new achievements.
  • Lots of fixes, improvements, tuning and balance changes.

 

And we’re not done…there is more free content and updates coming to Garden Warfare in the future.

Starting next week, players will be given the option to purchase coins from the Sticker Shop, which allows players the ability to access new packs and character content more quickly – all the same content that can be earned through regular gameplay. Now you have the choice to play your way; you can play to get new packs and content via earned coins in the game, or you can purchase coins to get more of the packs and content you want right away.

Again, thanks to all our Garden Warfare players for the support and feedback, and we’ll see you out on the Cactus Canyon golf course!

    Thanks for all of the hard work on Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare so far. i can't wait to see what lays ahead in the future for this game, especially when we eventually see it on PC down the road as well. I'm not upset at all with the introduction of buying coins, since in the end it's just a way where people who want to progress faster, can. If I spend a few hours a night, I can get the same packs that people have to pay for now, it's just a matter of how you want to support. Free DLC ftw!

    Can't say I'm thrilled to see microtransactions (buyable coins) coming to PvZGW. I'm enjoying the new content and I'm looking forward to as many new characters, maps, customizations, consumables, and modes as you can supply (free or not). (Some of the older maps got some welcome tweaks, too, no? I swear there are some new pathways in Gardens and Graveyards that are new.) Game Chat still doesn't work properly on Xbox One, but I play all the time nonetheless. (Party Chat works fine.)

    This is a fantastic game and so far you guys have done a brilliant job supporting it. As fightclubdoll mentioned, there are issues with game chat on the Xbox One that need to be addressed. It would also be nice if the game remembered which version of a class you last used instead of defaulting to the base class all the time. It would also be nice to be able to have private matches. I have to say that I'm not exactly thrilled by the micro-transactions stuff though. Be careful with that.

    Love this game! One thing I would like to see added is an automatic boot after a certain amount of inactivity on a player's part, say a minute. Every game it seems there are at least one or two players who have apparently put the controller down for whatever reason and are just standing there. I suppose this goes the same for both teams, so it evens out, but it's still mildly annoying. With an auto-boot at least we'd have a chance of getting someone with a pulse in there to fill the slot.

    PC-version? Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare. I guess that there was mention that it was not available yet. My purchase went through anyway! so I wasn't aware that it wasn't available until I researched the blogs. Availability in Spring of 2014 and it's April 28th . . isn't that spring time lol, my son is excited about the purchase and is eager to play it. I understand now why it is faded in the login panel. So in behalf of my sons impatience, I calmly , respectfully ask when this PC vers

      version will be released or maybe you could allow my access to the standard version to my account till the premium PC version is released unless the standard version for PC is also unavailable. For now, I check the login panel everyday for my son!
