Forget Titanfall, Garden Warfare Is Getting Free DLC Tomorrow

You’re really pretty, Titanfall, and you know I’ll be coming back to you eventually. It’s just I’ve got this date with a free new map and game mode for a game where I don’t feel like a complete arse for getting a low kill count.

I’m still playing Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare weeks after my positive review, but damn if those three online multiplayer game modes aren’t getting stale. Tomorrow’s free “Garden Variety” DLC pack is exactly what I needed.

There’s a new Gnome Bomb game mode, in which the Plants and Zombies take turns trying to destroy the other side’s fortified gardens or graveyards — yes, the Zombies finally go on the defence. Each of the game’s eight characters gets three new abilities, further mixing up the playing field with different load-out options. And there’s a new map — Chomp Town — which sounds like a horrible place to be a Zombie.

And I won’t quit playing Titanfall — in fact I find the two games complement each other nicely. When my titan explodes for the umpteenth time in a row and the frustration begins to set in, I switch over to the cartoon combat of PVZ and the tension just fades away. I’ve not been so shooter-centric since the original Unreal Tournament came out.

So yes, free DLC tomorrow, and be sure to add F4hey to your list of people to shoot at.


    • +1 this. The boys in the house are devo that its not coming to Ps4. Its at times like this that i feel I made the wrong decision on console choice.

  • I like Garden Warfare but i’m slightly disappointed my wife and I can’t both earn coins/xp/achievements while playing splitscreen. We have to trade off.

    Haven’t played it online yet, but I look forward to it when I need a Titanfall break.

    • Ooo you haven’t played online?! Gardens and Graveyards is great fun and the maps are a joy. Good point about split screen though. My gf actually got in to this game with me for a bit (before Titanfall took over) and it was a shame she couldn’t earn things as well. It’s only the 2nd game she’s actually ever been willing to try (1st was Peggle which she loves.)

  • don’t feel bad for getting low kill counts Mike, that’s what the griefers want.

    armour yourself in enjoyment, and you shall forever walk as tall as the titans.

  • A PC release date would be much more exciting news to me…but still, this DLC sounds pretty cool. Three news skills for each character will add quite a lot more strategy and mayhem.
