Those of you with an eye on the Playstation Twitter account will no doubt have seen the various teaser images that hinted at Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare might be coming to Playstation platforms. Well today Sony and developers PopCap Games have confirmed the release for both PS3 and PS4 and have given a release date of the 22nd of August.
The release announcement is accompanied by a new trailer where PopCap describe some of the development process and decisions that led to a Playstation release.
Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare took the idea of the popular tower defense game that launched on PC, tablets, Xbox Live and PSN and turned it into a third person multiplayer shooter. What could well have failed as a cheap spin off of the original game managed to become hugely popular thanks to its quirky characters, vibrant, colourful graphics and hilarious and addictive team based action. Garden Warfare launched for the Xbox One and Xbox 360, with a PC release confirmed for June 27th through EA’s Origin service.
Playstation players however have also been crying out for a release, most notably of course for the PS4 and PopCap have listened to the feedback and decided to go ahead with the release. PS4 players can also look forward to a full 1080p, 60fps experience. Whats more, since the release comes a while after the original Xbox launches, both Playstation versions will have all current DLC packs included in the release. Split-screen co-op will be available, it will support Remote Play via the PS Vita and the Boss Mode feature will also be available through the Playstation Companion App on mobile devices.
