Everybody likes to win – it’s in our nature. Multiplayer-only games are very popular mostly due to the fact that it gives players that instant gratification of the win. Well, it should, unless you’re just really bad. To avoid that in the upcoming multiplayer shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, the producers are here with some tips and tricks for the aspiring garden defender.
In the latest video from EA, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare’s Creative Director Justin Wiebe and Game Designer Chris Fox give players some strategies to help them out of the gate when the game launches later this month. They note that the game features two 12v12 multiplayer modes that will require players to take on a variety of roles to win. As they say, variety is the spice of life, and for these common garden spices – variety is central to victory.
If you happen to be on the side of the zombies, you’re fortunately not at any disadvantage. In fact, the zombies were designed with abilities similar to that of the plants. In other words, knowing how to play as the sunflower means you’ll be able to instantly pick up its zombie equivalent. This ensures the game stays fair, but the zombies do have some peculiar quirks that players will have to learn if they want to take over gardens anytime soon.
If competitive multiplayer isn’t your thing, you’ll want to check out the cooperative mode that looks like a ton of fun.
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare launches February 18 for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
