Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 was announced during this year’s E3, but there wasn’t a set release date.
The game is a sequel to 2014’s Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, and if you pre-order Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, you get a Mass Effect-inspired mech suit called Grass Effect Z7-Mech. You also get access to “an emoji pack filled with 14 all-new emoji-style accessories to customize each character class with.”
Creative Director of Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 Justin Wiebe expressed his happiness to set a release date for the game, and that it’s earlier than people expected.
“At PopCap, we love to excite our fans, and couldn’t be more ready and thrilled to bring Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 into their hands earlier than expected, from the immersive worlds and the crazy characters, to the new ways to play such as Backyard Battleground, we’re incredibly proud of the game we’re building. This is a crazy shooter filled with fan-requested features as well as all-new experiences that will make this unlike any other game in the genre.”
PopCap and Electronic Arts revealed that Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 releases on February 23rd of 2016 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
