Go Split Screen in PvZ: Garden Warfare on Xbox One

By Marc Caccamise, 2 years ago
As we continue to slowly inch closer to the new, delayed release date for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, more details surrounding what to expect in the game are emerging. In this particular case, the newest video to be released takes a look at some gameplay that will be exclusive to the Xbox One.

Garden Warfare on Xbox One will feature a split-screen co-op mode, tasking the players with protecting a garden as they fight off endless waves of zombies. The video shows off different plant variants that you will be able to play as, such as the Ice Peashooter which shoots frozen peas to slow down enemies, and the Fire Cactus which applies fire damage to zombies over time. As players progress through the zombie waves, the Zomb-Boss Slot will pop up and determine the type of boss zombie that will be encountered every four or five waves. This slot machine will also produce other game variants, such as the tombstone that creates a zombie-spawner somewhere in the map that players will have to take out, and also coin bonuses for the players to use.

The other mode discussed is Boss Mode which can be played with either Xbox One's Kinect or with a Smartglass device. Assuming the role of either Crazy Dave with the plants, or Dr. Zomboss with the zombies, a player using this mode will be presented with a top-down view of the map in which they can then assist their team with several different types of drops, such as Spotting and Health stations, cherry-bomb airstrikes, and a Resurrection station to revive your teammates instantly.

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