Who saw this coming?! Well, besides all of the people that
read the leaks and rumors over the past few months. Plants vz. Zombies: Garden
Warfare is a third-person action title by Popcap that will land on the Xbox One
and Xbox 360 exclusively (though the next-gen version will come first).
A demo was shown off from the plant perspective, with the player taking control of a Peashooter running around in third-person and firing at hordes of oncoming zombies. His teammates (a healing sunflower, sniping cactus, and another plant ally) helped him fight waves of enemies.
While it's definitely more run-and-gun than previous PVZ games, it still has a level of strategy--you'll be able to plant different seeds to grow support plants. It's essentially Gears of War's horde mode, except with PVZ's charm. It looks absolutely magnificent.
