Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 players should get ready for the Trials of Gnomus update that will introduce new game modes, unique weekly events with new loot, a mysterious gnome merchant with an inventory of rare goods, a new gnome underworld to explore, and more.
“Trials of Gnomus introduces the Mystery Portal, a magical gateway built by gnomes to test the skills of the plants and zombies,” the developer explains. “Players can travel through the Mystery Portal to play three all-new limited-time game modes and earn Rainbow Stars to unlock Rainbow Chests and the Gnome Underworld.
“In this all-new area, players can engage in the Trials of Eternity, a series of challenging gnome trials that will test their speed, puzzle-solving, shooting, and memory skills. By discovering and completing the Trials of Eternity, players can unlock new rewards from legendary customization items, to original Garden Warfare favorites, and eventually redeem prizes that will change their PvZGW2 universe forever.”
Three game modes will be made available for a limited time: Cats vs. Dinos, Boss Hunt, and Super Mix Mode. Details of each can be found below:
- Cats vs. Dinos – faceoff in a Jurassic battle of felines versus dinosaurs in this fast, competitive game mode fought in a new extra-large Gnomiverse multiplayer map.
- Boss Hunt – team up with friends and take on the ultimate PvZ challenge as you battle epic bosses. Battle on higher difficulties to earn even bigger rewards.
- Super Mix Mode – a new, crazier mix of Crazy Settings featuring different combinations of characters squaring off against each other.
The update also includes a number of bug fixes and tuning updates for maps and classes.
