For those who can’t wait anymore, the beta to the upcoming Plants vs Zombies title will be releasing later this month. The beta will become available on both the XBOX One and Playstation 4 beginning January 14th and will run until the 18th. While this might not be much up front, information has been released detailing what players can expect during the beta.
The “Backyard Battleground is an interactive environment that connects you to every map and mode, and brings to life more ways to experience the Plants vs. Zombies universe.” This Battleground will include a king of the hill inspired mode called Flag of Power, a stats room where the player can access their stats and achievements, and a Quest board which will have constantly updated challenges for the player to pursue.
The beta will also include two maps for 24-player matches to take place on. Moon Base Z puts the plants on the offensive for the first time, while the Seeds of Time map retains the classic 12v12 matches. In addition to the maps, there will be four new modes and two new maps included on a daily rotation. Finally, six new characters will be joining the original cast of the first title: Kernel Corn, Rose and Citron for the plants. Imp & Z-Mech, Super Brainz and Captain Headboard.
While Plants vs Zombie: GW2 will be releasing on February 23, you can access details and join the beta here!
