EA Access’ Latest Is Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare

It’s been a bit since EA Access has been rummaging through news sites, so it’s time for the subscription service to release something new. It did just that by adding Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare to its playable roster, called The Vault.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare hereby will join Xbox One titles like Battlefield 4, FIFA 14 or Peggle 2. Games like EA Sports UFC and Dragon Age: Inquisition will be added later as well.

This rendition of the comical title by developer PopCap Games takes the icons from its franchise and puts them in a quirky team-based shooter. Zombies and plants of varying kinds shoot each other with the different abilities they respectively hold.

There are a variety of game modes available in the base game, which offers the usual wave-based plays, zone control points or deathmatch possibilities. A fair few of these modes take a jab at established game modes from larger shooter franchises.

EA Access subscribers will also be able to pit from the game’s free downloadable content (DLC), such as the Legends of the Lawn pack that adds more customization options and a new game mode.

EA Access offers a way for users to grab from a selection of ever-available titles for a monthly fee. Additionally, some titles will be granted early to subscribers.

A subscription to EA Access costs $4.99 or €3.99 a month. If anything, getting access to a lot of yearly releases without having to pick up a copy should be a blessing to the gamer who just wants to kick back and play a few rounds from time.
