Ever since its reveal, it was pretty obvious that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was a parody of sorts. The modern warfare genre of first-person shooters had reached a saturation point in 2013, and it was about time somebody made fun of it. Interestingly enough, Call of Duty and Battlefield aren’t the only games being made fun of though.
In a new trailer for Garden Warfare, the game’s producer – Brian Lindley – talks up the game’s reliance on humor. He’s quick to point out that humor has always been a core tenet of the franchise, and that Garden Warfare afforded them the opportunity to branch out in regards to humor. That humor manifested in the form of promotional posters that poked fun at most of EA’s major franchises, like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Medal of Honor and Dead Space.
The aforementioned posters are just that though – posters. Is there any chance we might see some DLC in the future that features nods to EA’s stable of franchises? Lindley just gave us a maybe but EA is never one to shy away from monetizing their game through DLC. So fret not, you may be able to play as the Grass Effect team just yet.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is out February 25 on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
