PC Version Of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Gets Dev Diary w/ Gameplay

Plants VS Zombies Garden Warfare Origin EA PC

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is a game that has taken many by storm on the Xbox ONE next-generation console, and up until recently, was exclusive to that system. EA Games and PopCap will now bring the title to PlayStation 4, PC, and eventually a number of other platforms.

As part of their campaign to raise awareness for those on other platforms who might not have heard about this fantastic new spin on multiplayer gaming yet – the following developer diary has been released and even features Gameplay Footage of the PC Version which will be made available on EA’s Origin marketplace / service for Windows PC on this coming Tuesday (June 24, 2014).

Since EA owns Origin, there will be some timed-exclusive content for the PC version of the game that can’t be found elsewhere as of next week including new features which haven’t been announced yet, new boss battles, exclusive class abilities, and a new map called Jewel Junction. Jewel Junction is featured in the video above released officially by EA Games and PopCap on the Plants Vs. Zombies channel and seen below. This title is available for pre-order and can be downloaded (pre-loaded) right now for those who buy on Origin.

The PlayStation version of the game will be released on August 19, 2014 for PS4 and PS3 and can be pre-ordered digitally through the PlayStation Network at this time. Special Hat Packs will be included in these versions of the game for those who pre-order with PlayStation brand themes including those in the following image seen below. The Boss Mode of the game which was made popular on the Xbox ONE version of the game will also be featured on the PS4 version.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Coming to PS3 and PS4 this Summer

Originally released for Xbox 360 and Xbox One earlier this year with a PC release next month, PvZ: Garden Warfare will soon be available on Sony’s PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 consoles on August 19th, 2014.

A spin-off of the Plants vs. Zombies series which are primarily tower defense games, Garden Warfare is a frantic and ridiculously fun third-person shooter that runs on EA’s popular Frostbite 3 engine. Players can choose to team up with 3 others and defend the garden against waves of zombies in the 4 player co-op mode Garden Ops or battle online competitively in the game’s addicting 24-player team-based multiplayer modes. The game features a plethora of unlockable content including new abilities, character classes, customization options and more.

For the past few days Popcap games had been teasing fans with images suggesting that popular shooter would in fact be making its way to Sony platforms. These images featured a Plants vs. Zombies take on popular PlayStation exclusive games such as Fat Princess, and the Rachet and Clank and Sly Cooper franchises.

Players will be able to play PvZ: GW for PS4 on the PS Vita via the popular Remote Play feature for some on the go action. Similar to the Xbox One’s version of the game, the PS4 version will also feature the exclusive Boss Mode. This mode allows players to provide air support on the battlefield, through the use of a flying drone which can call in airstrikes, heal teammates and more. Boss mode can only be played as a companion experience for mobile devices via the PlayStation App. PS4 owners will also have the option to play the game’s co-op mode via split-screen. Additionally Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will be playable at 60 frames per second and a native 1080p resolution.

The PS3 and PS4 versions will contain all of the current free DLC that has been released for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions. So players will not have to worry about downloading the Garden Variety Pack and the ZomBoss Down pack as everything will be on the disc. Any more DLC planned for release will most likely be free as well. EA allowed Bioware to release many free DLC packs for Mass Effect 3’s multiplayer and it seems this will be a running theme with Garden Warfare.

Our very own DJ Killzone Jones reviewed the Xbox One version rewarding it an 8/10 and calling it “a great 3rd person shooter that captures the essence of the original tower defense games but brings an entirely fresh and new experience.”

Having played the game on Xbox 360 extensively I can attest that statement despite missing out on the exclusive Boss mode and split-screen. So give it a read, if you are looking for new and fun multiplayer experience. Those who pre-order the game will receive exlcusive customization options inspired by the Sly Cooper, Rachet and Clank and Fat Princess games.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Getting Free DLC Content Tomorrow With Garden Variety Pack

Free-Plants-vs-Zombies-Garden-Warfare-Garden-Variety-DLC-Out-Tomorrow-March-18

If you’ve been pinning for a new mode, map or customization options in Plants vs. Zombies, then you are in luck. Tomorrow will see the release of a new update for the weird and insanely fun third-person shooter from developer Popcap Games HD. The ‘Garden Variety Pack’, which is free by the in case you missed it somehow, will bring a new map called 8v8 map called Chomp Town that is all about close-quarter combat that will sure to result in even more frantic action. All modes will be playable on Chomp Town.

In addition to this new map is the new Gnome Bomb mode; which sees both factions fight for possession of a little critter with a bomb strapped to him. Winning the match requires one team to successfully detonate the bomb at the enemy’s base. It’s similar to the Obliteration mode from Battlefield 4, which makes sense seeing as the game does take inspiration from the BF series.

That’s not all you are getting with this free update. What’s that you ask? More free content you say? Why yes, yes there is. Last but certainly not least, players will also receive a plethora of new customization options for their characters; ranging from new upgrades and abilities to new aesthetics.

That’s a lot of free stuff, reminds me of the free dlc support Mass Effect 3’s Multiplayer co-op mode received. Maybe we will see a similar situation with Garden Warfare, if not having this first pack for free is still a great deal.

Check out the trailer below featuring Xbox Live’s Larry Hyrb (Major Nelson) offering a preview of  the free DLC.

 

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is out now for Xbox One and Xbox 360. A PC release is on its way. Click here for our review of the X1 version.

Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare Xbox ONE Review

PVZGWlogo

Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is a 3rd Person Action Shooter for the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC from PopCap Games. The game is a spin-off of the original Plants Vs Zombies but gives the player full control of each and every Plant and/or Zombies then pits them in a battle for the backyard. Each plant and each zombie are controlled by the left thumb-stick and aim their weapons with the right stick, firing with the trigger and jumping with the A button.

Players who stick with one of the four different zombie/plants will upgrade their abilities that can be triggered with the other face buttons and bumpers. These abilities are timed sensitive and once you use them you will have to wait a few seconds to activate them again. The aim in the game is good but spotty at times but you can adjust it any the sensitivity to your liking even on the battlefield. The other controls in Garden Warfare are easy to learn but will take time to finesse to become good over time.

PVZGWpic1

If players are on Team Plants they will have access to the infamous Peashooter, the Sunflower, the Chomper as well as the Cactus for players to choose from. If the player lands on Team Zombies they can choose either Foot Soldier, the Scientist, the All Star or the Engineer when they head into battle. Each team has a boss mode which players control Crazy Dave or the King Zombie to drop health or revives to their team, drop sonar nodes to reveal enemy positions and airstrikes to even the odds during matches. If have the Xbox Second Screen app you can control the boss with your smart device. The Boss Mode class is exclusive available to the Xbox One and at the time of this review there are no plans to bring this feature to the Xbox 360 or PC.

PVZGWpic2

PVZGW is strictly a multi-player/Co-Op game which may turn off some gamers but with its plethora of game modes it has plenty of content for players to explore. Garden Ops acts the games horde mode where the plants must defend their garden from an onslaught of zombies that gets increasingly difficult as each wave passes. Every player in the squad will be equipped with plant cards that will allow them to place different plants in vacant flower pots to help fend off the zombies and heal their squad. If players make it to the final round they will have to charge to the pickup point where Craaazy Dave will extract them in his Winnebago. Team Vanquish serves as the games Deathmatch mode the first team that reach 50 vanquish wins. Garden Vs Graveyards is the games capture and hold mode where the Zombies fight to take over the plants gardens which ever team that holds the most areas at the end of the game wins.

PVZGWpic3

When every players vanquishes a foe, complete an side objective, and complete a match or wave they are award with Zcoins that can be used to purchase sticker packs that will upgrade their abilities and unlock new characters as they play the game. The more you play the more you earn and as of the time of this review neither EA or PopCap have plans to allow microtransactions for Zpoints which puts away worries of any notion of a “Pay to Win” option in the game for now. However the game does require skill and teamwork that even if a player was able to buy more packs for their character it wouldn’t matter. PopCap has perfectly balanced the game so even if you do have a heavy hitter you won’t automatically dominate because of it.

PVZGWpic4

The game offers Classic modes that do not allow players to use upgrades and the special characters as well as a Welcome Mat mode and mixed mode that throws all the game modes in a playlist. The only problem that PVZGW faces in its online Multi-player modes is the lack of matchmaking or clans and this hurts the game because it takes along time for players to add each other in the game. In the Xbox One version of the game their is an offline multi-player for the times when gamers are not connected to the internet and is also not slated to ever show up in the Xbox 360 or PC versions of the game. Players that want the definitive version of this game should purchase the Xbox One Version, even though it is $10 extra it is well worth it. Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare overall is a well-rounded shooter even with its flaws and it is a game that everyone can play and enjoy no matter what age they are.

Final Verdict:

Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare is a great 3rd person shooter that captures the essence of the original tower defense games but brings an entirely fresh and new experience. When players master the controls and can put up with the off beat matching making system they will be in for a game that is amazingly deep and enjoyable no matter how old they are.
