In a recent entry on Major Nelson's blog, Plants vs.Zombies Garden Warfare producer Brian Lindley dropped by to show off a "first look" video of the new "Gardens and Graveyards" mode. He also stuck around to answer a bunch of questions for Xbox's Jeff Rubenstein.
Lets' just let Brian give you the details on the mode that will be coming to the game.
The mode we're showing off in this video is called Gardens & Graveyards. G&G is a bit of a mix between of Battlefield's Rush and Conquest modes, intertwined with some tower defense elements similar to the original PvZ, supporting up to 24 players per session. The setup is pretty simple - Zombies have a limited amount of time to try to capture the garden bases and turn them into graveyards. These garden bases will be defended and fortified by the plant team, but if the zombies manage to capture a base, they can use the newly captured graveyard as their base and the battle shifts to a new objective at a different location in the map. The maps in G&G are quite large in scale, and as the battle progresses through the different base objectives, the scenery and action gets crazier and crazier. If the zombies manage to battle their way to the end of the map, they are challenged to overcome the last stand of the plant team and some interesting gameplay twists at the end
