Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 launches its open multiplayer beta beginning today and running until 18 January. The beta is open to all Xbox One players (requires Xbox Live Gold to go online and play multiplayer). Check out the beta trailer and summary of what the beta offers.
-Enjoy the Backyard Battleground and play Flag of Power, Garden Warfare 2’s King of the Hill-inspired mode, where you can jump into the action right away and experience an immersive and escalating battle (don’t worry – EA and PopCap are saving tons of great content and plenty of surprises for launch).
-You’ll also get to try out six new PvZ character classes, as well as a returning roster of your favorite characters from the original Garden Warfare.
-Jump into the 24 person multiplayer modes – the new Herbal Assault and Gardens & Graveyards.
-You’ll be able to play across four distinct maps – Moon Base Z, Frosty Creek, Z-Tech Factory, and Seeds of Time.
I had the opportunity to tour the PopCap studios and sit down with Gary Clay to get some hands-on time with Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 and the new Imp Mech variants. Check it out below:
