Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare ‘Gardens & Graveyards’ Mode Detailed

Posted on December 17, 2013 AT 08:18am

Popcap has unveiled a new mode for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare titled Gardens & Graveyards, which is described as a mixture of “Battlefield’s Rush and Conquest modes, intertwined with some tower defense elements.”

The Zombies team will have a limited amount of time to capture garden bases and turn them into graveyards. The Plants team can defend and fortify these bases, but once captured the map moves up and the graveyard becomes the Zombies new base. If the Zombies manage to get all the way to the end of the map they must take on the Plants in a last stand, which has “some interesting gameplay twists,” according to producer Brian Lindley.

Lindley also discussed some of the powers available to the Zombies team: “Aside from being controlled by smarter human players, the zombies have also been armed with a wide variety of Zomboss™ technology at their disposal to assist them in their never-ending quest for brainz and plant domination. This technology comes in the form of crazy weapons like ZPGs, Football Cannons, Jackhammers, Teleporters, Dolphin Guns and much much more.”

Gardens & Graveyards will support up to 24 players in a session, Lindley revealed. You can check out some gameplay of the newly revealed mode below, which also offers a look at the Driftwood Shores map, a large map with grasslands, castles, towns, and pirate ships.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is set to release February 18, 2014 for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
