Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will not have microtransactions at launch

Posted on February 21, 2014 AT 08:09am

Popcap’s upcoming team-based third-person shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will not contain any microtransactions at launch, the developer has confirmed.

“So we’re not going to have any microtransactions at all at launch,” producer Brian Lindley recently told GameSpot. Instead, following the launch of the game, Popcap will look at in-game metrics and listen to player feedback to determine how best to implement them, if they choose to at all.

Gary Clay, senior franchise marketing manager for Plants vs. Zombies, recently told Polygon that all items in the game are unlockable through gameplay alone. ”Everything is unlockable through gameplay,” he said. ”In fact, some of the things are only unlockable through gameplay. This is pretty much identical to how the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer works.”

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is set to release February 25 in North America and February 27 in Europe for Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
