When you think of Plants vs. Zombies, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Do you think of multiplayer third-person shooters? No? Well, that’s what EA thought of. During their press conference, EA announced a new entry in the Plants vs. Zombies franchise. Titled Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, this game will be a co-operative third-person shooter which appears to include waves of zombies (naturally) and a boss fight at the end. You do have the ability to set various plants up in certain locations, giving it that tower-defense kind of feel. But who wants to play Plants vs. Zombies for tower defense these days? Shooters are where it’s totally at!
Plants vs. Zombies was a PC game made by Popcap back in 2009 for the PC. It has since been ported to just about everything with a screen and became one of Popcap’s more successful franchises. Popcap was eventually bought out by EA back in July 2011. Then, on May 6th earlier this year, Popcap announced that the official sequel to their hit game would be released on July 18th of this year under the name Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time as a free-to-play title on iOS. This new game will be available on the Xbox One and Xbox 360, though its release date is unknown at this time.
