The battle for suburbia grows to crazy new heights in Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare 2! In this hilarious, action-packed shooter, zombie leader Dr. Zomboss has strengthened his horde and rebuilt suburbia as a zombie utopia. But hope remains, because for the first time the plants are taking the offensive in an all-out attack to reclaim their turf. Play as both the plants and zombies in new 24 player multiplayer and 4-player co-op modes, or go at it solo or in split-screen against the AI across all game modes. Garden Warfare 2 also introduces the Backyard Battleground, your very own interactive hub where you and up to 3 friends can take on daily quests, challenges, and interact with your favorite PvZ characters.
Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 currently has two discontinued achievements as they're tied to an in-game event that isn't available yet. However, there will be a Cats vs Dinos event beginning on March 26th and running until April 1st, meaning that the following achievements will become available in that period:

The upgrade grants immediate access to the Torchwood and Hover Goat-3000 characters, as well as four door keys to open all of the Trials of Gnomus. That makes the following achievement far easier:
