Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 cultivates a new plot of land

, | News

When a new map comes out for a shooter, I’m usually all, yeah, whatever, wake me when you’ve got some single-player content. So you’d think Electronic Arts releasing a new map for Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 wouldn’t be of any interest to me. But remember there’s nothing in Garden Warfare 2 that isn’t both single-player and multiplayer, offline against bots or splitscreen with my friend, all going into the same character progression, loot grind, and quest system. Garden Warfare 2 won’t judge, limit, or segregate how I play. It’s all good. So when EA boast a big new city map, it’s not just a new place for online matches. It’s a new place for pretty much everything Garden Warfare 2 does.

The map is part of today’s free update, which includes a balance overhaul leaving no plant or zombie untouched (read the specifics here) and 1200 (!) new customization items. Because everyone’s plants and zombies weren’t already gaudy enough.
