first_img EA ruining Peggle with new pay-to-play pricing structurePlants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare quick review Stay on target Plants vs Zombies was a cute mobile game that has since become as giant as a redwood tree. The tower defense-like title has not only gotten a sequel but even a spin-off series in Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare. Crossing over into the third person shooter genre wasn’t enough for this franchise, however, as it is now getting a collectible card battle game similar in style to Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Behold — Plants vs Zombies Heroes.Players will take on the role of a Plant or Zombie hero and use hundreds of cards based on characters from the franchise. The game features a campaign mode with 80 adventures and 400 levels. Those who want to compete against real opponents can face off against friends (or random strangers) online in ranked or unranked multiplayer matches.According to the game’s senior producer, Brian Lindley, Plants vs Zombies Heroes started off as a prototype card game that he and his team created to play during their spare time. Over time, it became a more fleshed out collectible card game full of secrets, depth, and strategy. Since the team was having such a blast playing it, they decided to create a full-blown game that everyone could enjoy.To celebrate the launch of Heroes, Plants vs Zombies 2 and Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 will have their own “Lawn of Doom” events. These will have Halloween-inspired levels, costumes, items, and bosses.The Plants vs Zombies franchise has proved that it can succeed by having games in vastly different genres so there is no reason to believe that Heroes won’t be another winner. The fact that collectible card games are a big thing these days should also be a big help. Don’t be surprised if this game becomes as popular as Hearthstone was when it first released.Plants vs Zombies Heroes is available now on iOS and Android.last_img read more
