The ongoing war between the undead and sentient fauna rages on, and both sides are bringing in reinforcements. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is even bigger and more awesome than its Xbox One launch game prequel. Check out why we’re loving this strategy game turned shooter.

Competitive and Co-op Play

Garden Warfare 2 features six competitive online multiplayer modes (supporting up to 24 players), and two four-player co-op modes. Whether you’re fighting for control over an expanding map in Turf Takeover, or teaming up with friends to defend your base in Garden Ops, Garden Warfare 2 has a variety of ways for you to enjoy it.

Tons of Insane Characters

The eight classes from the original Garden Warfare – like the Pea Shooter, Chomper, and Foot Soldier zombie – return, and they’ve brought six all-new classes with them. There’s a huge variety of play styles to try out, from the highly defensive Citron to the melee specialist Super Brainz. And each character can be customized with accessories and costume parts, too!

Robust Single-player Mode

In addition to the story mode, all of the other modes in Garden Warfare 2 can be played solo, with A.I. enemies and teammates. Additionally, playing against the A.I. allows you to set different rules and parameters for the game. Wanna give everyone infinite ammo and see how crazy it gets? Go for it!

Couch Co-op

Who said local multiplayer is dead? Garden Warfare 2 supports splitscreen play for up to four players. And with its wacky style and sense of humor, it makes for a pretty great party game.

Constant Rewards

Playing the modes in Garden Warfare 2 earns you in-game currency that can be used to purchase packs that award you costume accessories and new character variants. Getting new variations of your favorite characters – each sporting different special attacks – is awesome, and the game dishes out coins at the perfect pace to keep you playing.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is available now on Xbox One. Wanna brush up on your strategy before you jump in? We’ve got some tips to help you get stronger.
