Say what you will about Electronic Arts, but their first Plants vs. Zombies console game is pound for pound one of the best values around. Case in point: the PvZ Garden Warfare Tactical Taco Party Pack DLC is now free for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
The PvZ Garden Warfare Tactical Taco Party Pack DLC is just the latest round of free downloadable content EA has released for the multiplayer game. And as you can see in the video below, it looks hilarious.
This PvZ Garden Warfare Tactical Taco Party Pack DLC may be hitting in time for America’s Independence Day, but it’s got a distinct south-of-the-border vibe. The DLC adds a new map, new mode and a new multiplayer playlist.
The new map, Jewel Junction, is on full display in the video below, as is the new game mode, called Vanquish Confirmed. The DLC also adds a new 8v8 mixed mode playlist that spans all competitive game modes, including Gardens & Graveyards.
In the PvZ Garden Warfare Tactical Taco Party Pack DLC, Dr. Zomboss has been mining gems from the Jewel Junction mines in order to help finance his war efforts. The Plants have discovered this facility and are trying to hit him in his pocket book. If successful players can strike a major victory against Dr. Zomboss and his Zombie army, the fiesta will commence. Just watch out for the train!
In addition to the map, mode and playlist additions, the DLC pack also includes several other upgrades such as character variants and new co-op challenges.
The two new custom character variants, complete with new appearances and abilities, are brought to them by Aquafina FlavorSplash. The first, Berry Shooter, is a blue, berry-boosted beauty who deals extra splash damage with a slower rate of fire – perfect for vanquishing that elusive, overly ambitious opponent. The Citrus Cactus, meanwhile, slings orange wedges with a 3-round burst. This prickly fellow vanquishes foes with precision shooting and perfectly timed one-liners.
In Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare, players choose a side and square off in riotous combat against their plant or zombie opponents, utilizing an arsenal of outrageous weaponry. Beloved character favorites from the franchise, including the Sunflower and Chomper, reprise their roles, and the game tops it off with a new cast of zany characters such as Ice Cactus and the Marine Biologist.
PvZ Garden Warfare now features five distinct gameplay modes including 12 vs. 12 competitive multiplayer called “Gardens & Graveyards” and “Team Vanquish,” 8v8 “Gnome Bomb” and “Vanquish Confirmed,” and the cooperative “Gardens & Graveyards.”
