Electronic Arts and Popcap have announced the release date for Garden Warfare, the first expansion for the Plants Vs. Zombies franchise. The Xbox One and Xbox 360 version have their date set on February 18th in North America while Europe will have it on February 21st. The PC version date has not yet been announced, but rest assure as it will be released, however at a later date.
The Frostbite powered third person shooter themed around the Plants Vs. Zombies franchise is going to be offered at the budget price of $39.99 (US) / €39.99 (EU)/ £39.99 (UK) on the Xbox One and $29.99 / €29.99 / £29.99 on the Xbox 360. For the extra $10 / €10 / £10 Xbox One players will get two additional modes including a split screen local co-op and boss mode in which players can use Kinect or a Microsoft SmartGlass compatible device to support their teammates using a Battlefield 4 like commander mode.
A lot of changes have been made in Garden Warfare, taking a slightly different approach from the traditional Plants Vs. Zombies games, but it just might be fun enough to become pretty popular. From the limited amount we have seen of the game, it does seem to look like a lot of fun.
