Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is partnering with BioWare™
on an intergalactic pre-order*. Fans who pre-order the game will get
access to a new Grass Effect Z7-Mech when they start Garden Warfare 2.
Crafted by Dr. Zomboss, and inspired by one of the development team’s
most favorite videogame franchises, this mech will help ensure
Zomburbia’s galactic future. Gamers will have a blast playing with what
was built to be the best-looking bane of plants everywhere. The Z7-Mech
comes strapped with tools like the melee Zomni-tool, as well as
interlocking ceramic plate armor with kinetic padding. This character is
designed to augment tech, biotic, and weapons damage.
The battle for Suburbia reaches crazy new heights in Plants vs.
Zombies Garden Warfare 2. For the first time in franchise history,
zombies have taken over Suburbia and plants are on the attack. Each
faction has enlisted new characters to join the fight, including Rose,
an all-powerful sorceress from the past that can turn zombies into
playable goats and Captain Deadbeard, a crusty pirate that has been
adrift for hundreds of years. All the over-the-top fun takes place
across 12 new immersive maps that are bursting with personality and
humor, spanning everything from a Time Travel Theme Park to Moon Base Z. Plants
vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 taps into the heart of what fans loved
about the original and goes above and beyond to deliver the funniest,
craziest, most over-the-top shooter.
