Load up your Peashooters and grab your Dolphin Guns in the ultimate battle for brainz as Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare launches today.
Choose a side and wage all-out war on plant or zombie enemies in a variety of gameplay modes and with a jaw-dropping arsenal of outrageous weapons.
"Creating a shooter based on the Plants vs. Zombies franchise was something few people would have ever expected, but we think the real surprise will come when fans get their hands-on the game," said Brian Lindley, Producer on Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare. "While it’s a totally different genre for the series, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is every bit as accessible as the original game and offers the same level of depth, strategy and insane fun fans expect from the Plants vs. Zombies universe."
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare features adored favourites in the series, such as the Peashooter and Sunflower, along with a new cast of characters including Ice Cactus, Hot Rod Chomper and all the Zombies players can get their hands on. Players can jump into three distinct modes including two 12 vs. 12 competitive multiplayer modes called "Garden & Graveyards" and "Team Vanquish," or a four-player co-operative mode called "Garden Ops." An amazingly deep set of customisation options gives players an opportunity to personalise plants and zombies with fun costumes, items, hats and more, some of which give all-new abilities to each of the characters.
Two additional modes will be available exclusively on Xbox® One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The first allows for local cooperative split screen so players can team up with a friend on the couch, and the second is Boss Mode which allows for a third friend to join via a SmartGlass device to support their teams with a top-down view of the battlefield from where they can drop health, artillery strikes and more. Boss mode is also available on Kinect for a full screen experience.
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, a best-in-class multiplayer shooter that combines the power of the Frostbite™ 3 engine with the fresh humour, wild action and vibrant landscapes of the incredibly popular Plants vs. Zombies series.
Zombie Choir Music
Alongside the launch of Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare we’re giving you access to the game’s soundtrack which brings together the crazy, fun and unpredictable atmosphere of the game that mixes classic PvZ themes with 80’s inspired synth pop and a sprinkling of military action.
The music for the game was composed by veteran composer Peter McConnell who has composed award-winning scores in entertainment for over two decade. But this marks the first time in his long career from EA titles like The Sims and Brutal Legend where he tackles an entirely new genre: zombie choir music.
We hope you have as much fun listening as the PopCap team did in making the game!
