In a new video for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, producer Brian Lindley breaks down the Xbox One’s exclusive splitscreen co-op and Boss modes.
The two-player split-screen co-op sees players defending their garden against endless waves of zombies, and every few waves there’s a “Zomboss Slots” that randomly selects either three bosses or bonuses to spawn the next round.
Boss Mode, meanwhile, is a top-down map mode accessed through either SmartGlass or controlled through Kinect that is, functionally, the same as Battlefield 4’s Commander Mode. Players presiding over the game as the Boss can help their teammates by dropping spotting stations to reveal enemy locations, healing stations to provide assistance, resurrecting fallen players, and unleashing cherry bomb airstrikes.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare launches on Xbox 360 and Xbox One February 25 in North America, February 20 in Europe. Listings on the Korean and Brazilian (the Brazilian listings for PS4 and PS3 have since been taken down) ratings boards indicate a A Windows PC, PS4, and PS3 release might be down the line.
