For those of you who missed the news, Plants vs. Zombie’s second Garden Warfare game, Garden Warfare 2, has an open beta starting this weekend! From the 14th to the 18th, you and your friends, given you have a PS4 or XBone, can slaughter zombies or plants to your hearts desire.
If you overlooked the first release in this series I highly suggest giving this one a chance. Garden Warfare is one of those rare occurrences where a developer completely nails a kid oriented game, creating an accessible experience with depth and solid gameplay.
Each of the games numerous classes allows for wide range of gameplay from the Healing, Jet-pack wearing Mad Scientist on the zombie side, to a giant chomper plant, ala super mario, that can run around and literally devour the competition.
This game is funny, entertaining, and a surprisingly solid shooter all packaged in a way that you won’t feel guilty playing ours with your kids. The last installment even had a split-screen survival mode that was well made and addictive.
The best part about the beta, its super easy to get into. Here are the steps:
- Turn on your console. (PS4 or XBone)
- Navigate to the store.
- Search for Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.
- Download it.
- Launch it.
- Play it.
There ya go! You are just 1 day and 6 steps away from romping around suburbia. See you on the streets!
