After a surprise announcement this morning, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has now received a suitably zany gameplay trailer. Revealed in EA's E3 press conference, the clip shows off a series of new playable characters, including a particularly exciting pirate who can hide in an exploding barrel.

What's more, the company confirmed that the title will launch with a single player feature which will allow you to play all of the its multiplayer modes against AI opponents. Oh, and if you want to do some co-op horticulture, this mode also lets you play with a friend.

What do you make of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2? Will you be indulging in its gratuitous garden-based violence? Ready your watering cans in the comments section below.
