Get a taste before the game releases

If you've been craving for more plant on zombie action, and simply can't wait to get your hands on the upcoming Garden Warfare 2, then this news should excite you.

On January 14, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players will be able to download the Garden Warfare 2 Multiplayer Beta, which will be open entirely to the public. Everyone can download the beta either from Xbox Live Marketplace or the PlayStation Network. The event will run through January 18.

The beta will allow EA to stress test the servers, as well as showcase some of the upcoming new features, such as the Backyard Battleground mode and new classes. Here is the breakdown everything available in the Multiplayer Beta.

  • Limited access to Backyard Battleground, an all-new dynamic environment that connects you to every map and mode, and brings to life more ways to experience the Plants vs. Zombies universe. As soon as the game starts, players will be immersed in a wild playground full of dynamic events. Take your time exploring, or jump into the action right away with the King of the Hill-inspired mode, Flag of Power. Raise the Flag of Power and do everything you can to prevent the enemy from lowering it; igniting an all-out war where you’ll fight off wave after wave of enemies in a frantic, escalating battle.

  • Six new playable character classes are available including Rose, Citron, and Kernel Corn on the side of the plants, and Imp, Super Brainz and Captain Deadbeard on the side of the zombies. There will also be select variants including the Grass Effect Z7-Mech for a limited time.

  • Classic and brand new game modes with 24-player multiplayer battles, including Garden and Graveyards, and the new Herbal Assault featuring plants on the offensive.

  • Four new immersive and dynamic maps, including the low gravity Moon Base Z, and the snowy Frosty Creek.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 will officially launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC on February 23. EA Access members on Xbox One can also get a 10% discount on the game when purchasing.
