SHOOTERS JUST GOT WEIRD – PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES GARDEN WARFARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR XBOX ONE AND XBOX 360

PopCap Games, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. today released Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare, a best-in-class multiplayer shooter that combines the power of the Frostbite™ 3 engine with the fresh humor, wild action and vibrant landscapes of the incredibly popular Plants vs. Zombies series. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare lets players choose a side and wage all-out war on their plant or zombie enemies in a variety of gameplay modes and with a jaw-dropping arsenal of outrageous weapons. 

“Creating a shooter based on the Plants vs. Zombies franchise was something few people would have ever expected, but we think the real surprise will come when fans get their hands-on the game,” said Brian Lindley, Producer on Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare. “While it’s a totally different genre for the series, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is every bit as accessible as the original game and offers the same level of depth, strategy and insane fun fans expect from the Plants vs. Zombies universe.”

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare features adored favorites in the series, such as the Peashooter and Sunflower, along with a new cast of characters including Ice Cactus, Hot Rod Chomper and all the Zombies players can get their hands on. Players can jump into three distinct modes including two 12 vs. 12 competitive multiplayer modes called “Garden & Graveyards” and “Team Vanquish,” or a four-player co-operative mode called “Garden Ops.” An amazingly deep set of customization options gives players an opportunity to personalize plants and zombies with fun costumes, items, hats and more, some of which give all-new abilities to each of the characters.

Two additional modes will be available exclusively on Xbox® One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The first allows for local cooperative split screen so players can team up with a friend on the couch, and the second is Boss Mode which allows for a third friend to join via a SmartGlass device to support their teams with a top-down view of the battlefield from where they can drop health, artillery strikes and more. Boss mode is also available on Kinect for a full screen experience.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is now available for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment systems in North America. A digital version of the game can be downloaded for Xbox One or Xbox 360. A PC version will be available at a later date.

Daylight Reveal – The Forest and Prison

So, we have some Daylight news including a final release date and a price.  Drumroll please…

Daylight will be available on April 8 for $14.99 (€14.99/£11.99) on PC and PS4. Pre-order details coming soon…

On to other awesome Daylight stuff:

daylightr35

RealD 3D: 
The PlayStation 4 and PC version of Daylight will be fully 3D compatible out of the box! 3D-enabled TVs and monitors will bring the scares, jumps and all other things that haunt the Mid Island area to life in a very tangible way. RealD is the same technology they use in movie theaters for 3D movies and excels at giving the game terrific depth-of-field. Catching an overhead light flicker down an incredibly long corridor is one of the more chilling 3D applications…until you come across a spirit, that is. If you have the means, we highly recommend giving this mode a try. Oh; and here’s a casual reminder that Daylight is also compatible with the Oculus VR, for those brave enough…

PS4 Multimedia Integration:
This is a very cool feature that we’re super stoked about. It’s no secret that Daylight is extremely friendly for the PS4’s “Share” button (ditto, PC streaming). The tinkerers at Zombie Studios found a way to use Twitch chat to cue in-game events. The example we’ve been tossing around (and is in no way final) is that someone watching a stream types the word “Meow” into the chat, which causes the game to make a corresponding sound of a cat. So yes, you can literally scare your friends now by watching them stream. There are two caveats to this:

  • Trigger words are on timers, so you can’t spam them
  • There is no list of trigger words so you’ll have to experiment to find out what works

The Prison:
The Prison area unlocks after players find their way out of Dr. Mercer’s office. The hospital doors are replaced with iron bars, nurses’ stations replaced with guard checkpoints, and the prison is punctuated with a lurking 3-story stack of prison cells. Remnants players will find in this area are notes from prisoners to each other, guard logs about various altercations, and even a few cover-ups of impropriety. The spirits players begin to encounter in the prison are the first ones in the game that start to get aggressive. Staying safe in the prisons will require being able to quickly and efficiently navigate the prison block, but the tight corridors and guard rooms will put players to the test.

daylightr33

The Forest:
One of the later levels in Daylight is the Forest. After players traverse through the Prison and the Sewers, they will find themselves outdoors in a big open area, lit only by the trusty mobile phone light and the faint glow of a sallow moon. Despite being a giant open area of scrub land and swamps, the Forest still has the same procedurally generated environments as the rest of Daylight. Several notable landmarks will be randomly generated in the open world. The random landmarks will also contain the location of the remnants to find, but only the bravest players will live long enough to see what kind of horrors the forest holds.

The PlayStation®3 system version will be available at participating retailers, and digitally through the PlayStation®Store, for a suggested retail price of $39.99.

Fans were also treated today to the first PlayStation®3 system screenshots from this next installment of the popular series, as well as a new trailer revisiting the Sundered Land, the setting of the popular 2012 release Ragnarok Odyssey and Ragnarok Odyssey ACE, showcasing the multitude of added features, levels, giant bosses and other new additions and enhancements.

Ragnarok Odyssey ACE will provide players with an opportunity to experience cross-platform play between the PlayStation 3 system and PS Vita versions for the first time in the series. In addition, Ragnarok Odyssey ACE features a host of all-new content, including the Tower of Yggdrasil, an enormous ever-changing dungeon that will challenge players with different layouts and enemies each time they enter. Further, players will utilize the new “ACE Skill” system, an arsenal of powerful new moves that can be unlocked when enemies drop the “Proof of Expertise” item.

Also new to Ragnarok Odyssey ACE are a dozen elite AI mercenaries. Solo players can recruit any two of these NPCs to fight at their side. AI mercenaries are available for hire in various classes and both genders, so players can pick and choose companions that offset or support their particular character.

Ragnarok Odyssey ACE delivers on rich, new – yet familiar – content to explore. The game features a plethora of new bosses, items and features that expand upon the original Ragnarok Odyssey experience. Players of the original Ragnarok Odyssey will be able to transfer their character’s basic physical features such as name, face and job class (but not clothing), as well as weapon cards and monster cards (cards equipped to clothing or acquired via NEAR will not transfer over). Any additional DLC acquired can also be transferred by re-downloading it from the PlayStation Store.

Ragnarok Odyssey ACE is developed by Game Arts, creators of the Grandia and Lunar series, together with GungHo Online Entertainment in Japan. XSEED Games will release Ragnarok Odyssey ACE in North America on April 1, 2014.
