Ever since the game was shown at E3 2013 I have been enamored with Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare. Not only is the team at PopCap taking the series in a new direction by making it a shooter of sorts, they are allowing you to bring your friends along for the ride. The title will be releasing for Xbox 360 and Xbox One on February 18 in North America and February 20 in Europe, a PC release date has not yet been announced. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare was developed in the Frostbite 3 engine and will offer ten maps and three main game modes. 12 on 12 competitive multiplayer and four-player co-op mode and 12 on 12 Garden & Graveyards in which plants will have to defend their garden bases from zombies who are trying to turn them into graveyards. If you are playing the game on the Xbox One you will have access to two exclusive modes. One will be local split-screen co-op and also Boss Mode, which will allow you to utilize Kinect or a Smart Glass device to play a support role for friends playing in one of the other modes. You will be able to provide intel, health drops, revive stations and explosive artillery strikes from a top-down vantage point.
Brian Lindley, Producer on Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare recently stated:
