New mode, new map, and new ability upgrades on the way.
'Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare' continues its onslaught of fun on the Xbox platforms, and players now have one more reason to love the game, free new content. Tomorrow, the Garden Variety pack will drop, and it includes a new 8v8 'Gnome Bomb' gameplay mode, new Chomp Town map, and 24 new ability upgrades.
From EA, "The Garden Variety Pack features 24 new ability upgrades, three for each class including Sunflower’s Solar Flare Beam, Chomper’s Super Goop which cements zombies in place and the All-Star Zombie’s Ultra Tackle. These upgrades give players even more load out options for battle in the fun-dead field. The Garden Variety Pack also introduces the explosive Gnome Bomb mode that challenges plants and zombies to work together to destroy each other’s reinforced garden or graveyard. Players can explore a new funtastic map, and encounter a band of fresh Pirate Zombies, such as the Map Pirate Zombie who shields himself with a treasure map, in Sharkbite Shores and Port Scallywag."
From the High-Def Digest review of 'Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare:'
"'Garden Warfare' is beautiful, sounds great and it plays pretty well too. PopCap doesn't push any boundaries from a gameplay standpoint. That's understandable; this first installment is more evolutionary than revolutionary. The fact that it all works so well is impressive enough."
