EA’s all new ‘Plants vs Zombies Heroes’ has been soft launched in the New Zealand App Store today, where it is now available as a free download. According to Touch Arcade, while the game takes many of the core principles of the Plants vs Zombies series featuring the same lane-based combat, it actually lets you play against real people, either as the plants or the zombies. Check out the launch trailer below:
Players can collect hundreds of characters, including new roster favorites from Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 like Super Brainz, Z-Mech, Citron, and Rose, and adventure through an all new PvZ Universe with a unique, comic-style narrative. You can also pick your favorite hero, assemble your team, and use your heroic skills to outwit your opponents in battle.
“Battle and adventure by yourself against AI in the single player campaign, or battle against other players in real-time multiplayer! Challenge your friends or test your powers and strategy against the rest of the world in casual or ranked multiplayer battles – all in real time. Complete Daily Quests to earn rewards to expand your roster of Heroes and sidekicks.
In adventure mode, lead your favorite plant and zombies on an epic missions to battle and take down all opposing Heroes across locations as zany and diverse as the Heroes who inhabit them”.
The game should be rolling out in the Canadian App Store pretty soon as well. Meanwhile, take a look at this gameplay video and tell us what you think.
