By   /   11 months ago

With the build up to the release of Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 PopCap games and EA have been celebrating the success of the first game. Providing some statistics about the game, it is surprising just how popular Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare actually was.

Today PopCap revealed that the game has in fact been played by 8 million people. As a token of appreciation for this fact they are sending out 80,000 PvZ coins to people’s game accounts to celebrate the big number.


Since its February 2014 release Garden Warfare has also been host to 1.4 billion games, which average over 1,600 matches in a minute. This has led to the vanquishing of over 7 billion zombies in the game. That’s a lot of undead killed by killer plants.

Looking at some other details that have been revealed in the stats, it was revealed that the number 1 plant class was the Peashooter, with the zombies preferring Foot Soldier as their warrior of choice. In weaponry while the plants used their Heal Beam to great effect (used 4.9 billion times), the zombies made use of the ZPG 810 million times.

Taking these numbers into account this shows that the zombies are way more destructive, while the plants prefer to use a tactic of preservation to win the battles. It would appear that the zombies have come out the worst in the games if these number are to believed. It’ll be interesting to see if they can get the edge over the plants when the second game arrives.
