Free Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare DLC launches Tuesday

Garden Variety Pack includes new map, mode and ability upgrades

EA and PopCap will launch free Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare DLC for Xbox 360 and Xbox One this Tuesday, March 18.

The Garden Variety Pack will include a fresh map called Chomp Town and a new eight versus eight game mode titled Gnome Bomb, in which teams battle to destroy each other's reinforced garden or graveyard.


The DLC will also introduce 24 new ability upgrades, three for each class including Sunflower's Solar Flare Beam, Chomper's Super Goop which cements zombies in place and the All-Star Zombie's Ultra Tackle.

Additionally, PopCap promises a band of fresh Pirate Zombies, such as the Map Pirate Zombie who shields himself with a treasure map, in Sharkbite Shores and Port Scallywag.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare has held a top ten place on the UK all formats chart since its release in late February.

In our Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare review, we said the game "will enrapture younger players with its characters and style, but other games manage to do this while catering for those interested in the actual game underneath the affable exterior".
