After months as an Xbox One and Xbox 360 exclusive, both a Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare PS4 and PS3 version are on the horizon. EA has announced that the Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare PS4 and PS3 release date is Aug. 19. PVZ: Garden Warfare originally released on Xbox One Feb. 25.
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare will hit Windows PC on June 23. So while the Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare PS4 and PS3 versions will release last — and almost six months after than their Xbox kin — the delay comes with a few benefits.
Players who pre-order Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare PS4 or PS3 versions can get two digital card packs and PlayStation-exclusive customization for both their plants and zombies characters. The customization will include Hat Packs from Sony-stalwart franchises Ratchet & Clank, Sly Cooper and Fat Princess.
With that said, the Fat Princess Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare PS4 and PS3 content is only available through digital pre-order. The other content is available through traditional pre-order channels. All the content will be available immediately upon the Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare PS4 and PS3 release date.
PVZ Garden Warfare lets players choose a side and wage an all-out war on their plant or zombie enemies in a variety of gameplay modes and with an arsenal of outrageous weapons. Those weapons include fan-favorites such as the Peashooter and Sunflower, while the characters include new folks such as Ice Cactus, Hot Rod Chomper and a horde of Zombies.
Players can jump into three distinct competitive multiplayer modes including two 12 vs. 12 modes called “Garden & Graveyards” and “Team Vanquish,” or a four-player co-operative mode called “Garden Ops.” Split-screen gameplay and Boss Mode will also be available on PlayStation 4.
There’s also a rather large set of customization options that let players personalize their plants and zombies with costumes, items, hats and other items, some of which give all-new abilities to each of the characters. That’s where those Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare PS4 and PS3 exclusive Hat Packs come into play.
