February 18, 2016 — today is the day for gamers to turn their gardens into war zones because Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is now up for Early Access.

This time it’s bigger and perhaps… better!

A new all out war between the plants and the zombies has finally arrived and it’s got some new stuff for gamers to enjoy. Different and unique game modes can be played in Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2, including Herbal Assault, a game mode which makes zombies defend themselves against the plants. Not only that, Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 also contains progressive features for in-game characters and the players themselves. Characters gain experience points so they can be customized and upgraded, and can be promoted with new titles as they level up.


Leveling characters can be as quick as reciting the A, B, C’s because a Quest Board has been added to reward players with an experience multiplier. Quests can be found in any area, and there are those that are specifically designed for multiplayer modes as well.

in addition to this, each time characters level up, players will increase their rank, and much like the promotion feature for characters, players gain unique titles for themselves. Popcap is definitely giving their fans some bragging rights!

New maps have also been added in the game, including an ancient Egypt themed area called the Sandy Sands. Also, a new interactive environment called Backyard Battleground has been added, allowing players to access and connect to every map and mode from the start of the game. This environment let’s players join others with a push of a button.


With a new game you’d expect new exciting characters as well. Lucky us! New plant classes with their own unique abilities have been added, including classes Citron, Rose and Kernel Corn. But it’s not just the plants who have new recruits, the zombies have also received Deadbeard, Super Brainz, and Imp and Z-Mech in their roster. Plants and zombies from the previous game have also returned to Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2, and this time.

The official launch in North America for Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is set for February 23, 2016 and will launch on PC, Xbox One and PS4. Early Access is available for those who are members on Origin Access and EA Access for a limited time only.
