Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare channels Battlefield with ‘Gardens & Graveyards’ mode

PopCap Games has released a new gameplay video offering an in-depth look at Gardens & Graveyards, a new game mode for the upcoming Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare shooter.

The new mode, which supports up to 24 players, is described as a "mix between Battlefield's Rush and Conquest modes, intertwined with some tower defense elements similar to the original PvZ." Zombies have a limited amount of time to try to capture the garden bases and turn them into graveyards. These garden bases are guarded by the plant team, but if the zombies capture a base, they can use the newly captured graveyard as their new base.

"The maps in G&G are quite large in scale, and as the battle progresses through the different base objectives, the scenery and action gets crazier and crazier," explaines Garden Warfare producer Briand Lindley. "If the zombies manage to battle their way to the end of the map, they are challenged to overcome the last stand of the plant team and some interesting gameplay twists at the end."

The gameplay walkthrough can be seen below, but head over to Major Nelson's blog for a full interview interview with producer Brian Lindley. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is set to release this February 18 on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
