Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare PS4

We may still be nursing our Gamescom 2014 hangover with a packet of paracetamol, but the release calendar is not going to give us time to dawdle on the job. This is a surprisingly stacked week for all three PlayStation platforms, with no less than 11 new titles due out on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita. The highlights undoubtedly include Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition and Tales of Xillia 2, though it’s Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare that we’ve taken a particular lichen to – moss-ly because it’s just so pun-tastic. Alright, we’ll stop.

Pick of the Week: Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare sowed its seeds on various Xbox platforms earlier this year, attracting more buzz than an in-bloom blossom tree. Unlike other entries in the series, this takes the brand’s botanical battlefield to the next level, swapping tower defence for more traditional third-person gunplay. Featuring both co-operative and competitive game types, this has proved a real grower on competing games consoles.

Seriously, though, if you can’t cedar wood for the trees, then the PlayStation 4 version really does sound like the best of the bunch. In addition to running at a native 1080p resolution, it also includes split-screen co-op and a ton of content based on some of Sony’s most popular properties, including Sly Cooper, Ratchet & Clank, and Fat Princess. Will you be garden your patch in this game? We really will stop this time.
