Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 23 in North America and February 25 in Europe, Electronic Arts and PopCap Games announced.

Consumers who pre-order the game will get immediate access to the new “Grass Effect Z7-Mech” at the start of the game, as well as 14 all-new emoji-style accessories to customize each character class with. The Z7-Mech is loaded with the melee Zomni-tool, kinetic padding, and interlocking ceramic plate armor. It was inspired by Mass Effect and created in partnership with BioWare.

Here’s an outline of the game, via EA:

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 goes above and beyond to deliver the funniest, craziest most over-the-top shooter yet. Players can go on the offensive as the plants in all-new modes including the 24-player Herbal Assault mode, or rally the zombies together and defend against the plants in the 4-player co-op mode, Graveyard Ops. From the Great White North to Moon Base Z, all the hilarious action takes place across 12 fresh maps that are bursting with life and humor. Join the fight for Suburbia with six new character classes and over one hundred unique characters to collect. Experience even more ways to play, including the Backyard Battleground; players will have the freedom to explore this interactive environment by themselves or with friends. The Backyard Battleground is a wild playground with dynamic events and tons to discover, and is unlike anything that has been in a Plants vs. Zombies game before.
