EA's Plants vs Zombies series is branching out into a third genre.
Plants vs. Zombies: Heroes follows the template laid down by other card battlers by allowing players to amass a team of heroes and fending off against rival decks. Old characters will also be joined by a new cast.
It will be the first time any PvZ mobile game has had real-time multiplayer, although a single-player campaign is also included, as are daily quests.
For the first time ever on mobile, play as either plants or zombies and unlock their lawn-inspiring super powers,” the blurb explained. Collect hundreds of characters, including new roster favourites from Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 like Super Brainz, Z-Mech, Citron, and Rose, and adventure through an all new PvZ Universe with a unique, comic-style narrative.”
The series started out as a tower defence outing before branching out into the action realm with PvZ: Garden Warfare.
Plants vs. Zombies: Heroes is due out on mobile this year. Here's a trailer:
