Posted

Today, PopCap Vancouver announced the first ever public access multiplayer beta for Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare 2. The multiplayer open beta will be available for download this afternoon, and continues until January 18 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One giving fans a chance to experience immersive worlds, crazy new characters, and new game modes; including 24-player multiplayer battles. All of that before Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 hits stores February 23 in North America.

To play the public access multiplayer beta this afternoon, simply download it from the Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network Store*.

The Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 open-multiplayer beta will include:

  • Limited access to the all-new Backyard Battleground, a massive, interactive environment that brings to life more ways to experience the Plants vs. Zombies universe. Take your time discovering what Backyard Battleground has to offer, or jump into an escalating battle right away with the King of the Hill-inspired mode, Flag of Power.
  • Six new playable character classes including Rose, Citron, and Kernel Corn for the plants, and Imp, Super Brainz and Captain Deadbeard for the zombies. There’s also a returning roster of characters from the original Garden Warfare, and select variants including the Grass Effect Z7-Mech.
  • Dive into six different game modes, including 24-person multiplayer modes – like all-new Herbal Assault with plants on the offensive, or the classic Gardens and Graveyards.
  • Four distinct maps, including low gravity Moon Base Z, and snowy Frosty Creek.
