Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is an action game and online third-person shooter due out for PC in spring 2016.
The premise of PvZ GW 2 is captivating: the Zombies have finally conquered Suburbia, so now it is time for the Plants to strike back. The unthinkable has occurred: the Zombies have defeated the Plants and taken over the town of Suburbia – renaming it Zomburbia. This frames is the perfect excuse to add some new modes to the Plant on Zombie shooting action. These include Assault Herbal featuring 12 vs 12 action, and Graveyard Ops, a cooperative mode where four Zombies must defend their base enemy hordes.
Each faction has traveled back in time to enlist characters from the past, present, and future in a clear nod to Plants vs Zombies 2. For example, Plants have recruited Citron, the bounty hunting Orange from the future, while the Zombies have found Super Brains, the Zombie who thinks it is an 80’s superhero. Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 also has 12 new maps. This means you will find yourself fighting in a range of outlandish locations, including a futuristic theme park and the last frontier of the Wild West.
Not the most social person in the world? Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 also has you covered, featuring the option to fight alone against AI controlled enemies for the first time in the series. There is also a new split-screen mode to enjoy the game with a friend locally.
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare was great, and to us more of the same in a larger more bombastic game for Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 feels like a logical step.
