PopCap's upcoming PvZ-themed shooter will hit retail shelves in February.
Plants vs. Zombies might not be a franchise that naturally comes to mind when you're debating the strength of Microsoft's next-gen lineup, but EA certainly thinks that it'll be a big deal. The fact that Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare was the very first title that EA showed off during its E3 press conference speaks to the publisher's confidence.
But E3 was months ago, and, until today, EA had gone silent about Garden Warfare, which has undoubtedly caused a spiral of deep depression among hardcore PvZ players (those exist, right?). Luckily, Electronic Arts has finally broken its silence with an announcement about Garden Warfare's February 18 launch on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
"Gamers across the world have fallen in love with the Plants vs. Zombies characters and now they'll get to see them in an entirely new light," said Brian Lindley, a Producer on Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare. "Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare give the series' fans and shooter players a fun, new experience that they'll both enjoy as they blast, chomp and laugh their way through co-op and head-to-head online action."
Xbox One and Xbox 360 owners should be able to pick up a copy of Garden Warfare on February 18th in North America and February 20th in Europe. EA hasn't discussed when the title will migrate to other platforms, but it's probably safe to assume that those details will be revealed within the next few months.
In the mean time, PopCap, the developer behind Garden Warfare, has released a ten-minute gameplay video, and I have attached it to this article because I care about you. You're welcome.
