Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Gets Split-Screen Co-Op On Xbox OneBy: Zach Walton - January 31, 2014
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was confirmed to be getting a co-op mode earlier this month. The mode has four friends battling to defend their base from waves of increasingly difficult zombies. At the time, the mode seemed to be online only, but Xbox One players will have one more option.
EA confirmed this week that the Xbox One version of Garden Warfare will get a couch co-op mode. This mode is exclusive to the next-gen console and will allow up to two players to play co-op on the same screen. It’s a rarity to see couch co-op in this day and age, but it’s a little unfortunate that they couldn’t work a four player couch co-op mode into the game.
Another mode that’s exclusive to the Xbox One is called Boss Mode. This allows a player to use Kinect or SmartGlass to take on the role of Crazy Dave in his flying RV above the battlefield. From here, players can offer support to those on the ground by collecting sun and dropping powerups. You can think of it as a scaled down Commander mode from Battlefield 4.
Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is out February 25 for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. A PC version is on the way, but it won’t be available for at least a few more months as it’s a timed exclusive on Microsoft’s platforms.
