It seems that the zany weapons and madcap characters allow for a younger point of entry to the world of shooter games and actually seems like a clever way to grab a whole new audience who may be less inclined to the RTS style of playing. Popcap have a well known background in terms of producing accessible titles, but with deeper, addictive gameplay. Add to that the trademark humour Popcap are famed for and we could see a refreshing combination of fun and great visuals that could be a tonic for all Titanfall junkies.
With game features that are taking full advantage of the Frostbite 3 engine you will be able play 24 player multiplayer matches, take on the zombie horde with three online friends and, just for extra kicks, take to the Kinect, SmartGlass or even your controller in the all new Boss Mode. Customisation tools help you personalise your plants and zombies, and allow for you to add your own wacky slant to in-game characters.
All in all Garden Warfare could have the potential to go up against the big boys in the race to dominate the Xbox One titles.
