Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 has had its released date moved forward to February 23rd 2016, filling the the gap recently vacated by Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst. DICE’s parkour romp was delayed to give it a little bit more fine tuning, opening the door for PvZ: Garden Warfare 2.
I didn’t think I could possibly get interested in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3’s Zombies mode, until the sods at Treyarch released a trailer and it was everything I want. They had me at Jeff Goldblum and Ron Perlman, and once the doo-wop jazz music kicked in and I knew I’d found a new home.
By now it would probably more surprising if it was announced that a new Call of Duty wouldn’t be containing a Zombies mode, but it’s now at least been confirmed that the Activision-published Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 will feature the returning undead when it launches later this year.
The barrage of season pass content for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare continues unabated, with Activision unveiling the second of four map packs for Sledgehammer Games’ sci-fi shooter. Alongside the four maps, which have already been detailed in a previous video, the latest trailer for Call of duty: Advanced Warfare’s Ascendance DLC pack focuses on the Exo Zombies Infection campaign.
For all of its zombie hordes shambling around, if you’re careful then survival in Dying Light can be a breeze. Some of the zombies might be a bit of a problem, but your parkour skills are generally enough to lose even the hardiest of foes.
In a slightly unusual turn of events Sledgehammer Games looks to actually be attempting to weave some sort of narrative into the upcoming Havoc DLC pack hitting Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. The all-star cast includes John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and Jon Bernthal, who must team up to lay the smacketh down on the legions of drooling zombies that the Atlas Corporation has somewhat unwisely kitted out with highly versatile Exo Suits.
A survey has been sent out to a number of Far Cry 4 players enquiring as to what direction they would like to see the series take next, with some surprising options. Jurassic Park anyone?
Just as Call of Duty’s warfare has advanced, so have the undead in the traditional Treyarch Zombies mode, which will return in the upcoming Havoc DLC for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Modes besetting players with zombies have featured in three previous CoD entries (World at War, Black Ops and Black Ops 2) and if you thought you could hide in Advanced Warfare, you were dead wrong.
Quelle surprise, Activision has announced the Exo Zombies survival co-op mode, which is coming to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare early next year as part of its Havoc DLC pack. It’s become somewhat of a tradition for Treyarch’s Call of Duty outings at least to incorporate some form of shambling undead, but now Advanced Warfare dev Sledgehammer’s getting in on the action too.
Xbox gamers have been busy hogging Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare over the last few months, but it's finally the humble PC's turn to get on the receiving end of some botanical mayhem. The online-only third-person shooter pits two teams of 12 against each other in frantic battles across huge battlegrounds. Using the same Frostbite 3 engine that powered Battlefield 4, you can lay waste to your surroundings as you make your opponents eat dirt.
It shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone, but after Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare producer Brian Lindley promised that it wouldn’t feature micro-transactions at launch, his choice of wording all but guaranteed they would be following soon after.
