During the EA Press conference yesterday, John Vechey of PopCap Games took the stage to tell the crowd of gaming journalists that Garden Warfare was not a joke and very much a real product. The upcoming title combines the popular Plants v. Zombies formula with third-person action and some light tower defense elements.
Vechey demonstrated a four player co-op session highlighting the four known classes: the soldier-esque Pea Shooter, the medic/rapid-firing Sunflower, the long-ranged Cactus, and the brawling Chomper. As the level progressed, players were able to plant vegetation in flower pots to provide fire support or bonuses to nearby allies. Occasionally, power-ups dropped in the level, like flying garlic drones. The session on display to the crowd at the conference was from Garden Warfare's survival mode, which pitted players against waves of enemies culminating with a boss monster.
Garden Warfare will be coming first to Xbox One and Xbox 360 before making its way to PC and other platforms.
