Popcap Vancouver and EA have revealed that Playstation 4 and Xbox One users will be able to take part in an open multiplayer beta for Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 starting from January 14th. A brand new trailer has been released to celebrate this – check it out below:

The beta will run from January 14th until January 18th and will give players the chance to check out the insane, undead/garden savagery that is Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2. The first game was a blast, so I can’t wait to try this out.

“Downloading the multiplayer beta will get you:

– Limited access to Backyard Battleground, an all-new dynamic environment that connects you to every map and mode, and brings to life more ways to experience the Plants vs. Zombies universe. As soon as the game starts, players will be immersed in a wild playground full of dynamic events. Take your time exploring, or jump into the action right away with the King of the Hill-inspired mode, Flag of Power. Raise the Flag of Power and do everything you can to prevent the enemy from lowering it; igniting an all-out war where you’ll fight off wave after wave of enemies in a frantic, escalating battle.

– Six new playable character classes are available including Rose, Citron, and Kernel Corn on the side of the plants, and Imp, Super Brainz and Captain Deadbeard on the side of the zombies. There will also be select variants including the Grass Effect Z7-Mech for a limited time.

– Classic and brand new game modes with 24-player multiplayer battles, including Garden and Graveyards, and the new Herbal Assault featuring plants on the offensive.

– Four new immersive and dynamic maps, including the low gravity Moon Base Z, and the snowy Frosty Creek.”

You can download the open beta for Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 on January 14 – the game officially launches on February 23rd and will be available on Playstation 4 , Xbox One and PC.
