Mass Effect Mech, Backyard Battleground Announced for Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2

PopCap Game announced the debut of Backyard Battleground and the “Grass” Effect Z7-Mech at Gamescom today.

Backyard Battleground is an all new dynamic hub in Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2. This interactive environment connects players to every map and mode, brings to life new ways to experience the Plants vs. Zombies universe through solo and social play. As soon as the game starts, players will be immersed in a wild playground with dynamic events and plenty to discover and do. They can invite up to three friends into their Backyard Battleground to do almost anything they want – take on daily quests, complete missions for Crazy Dave and Dr. Zomboss, interact with some of their favorite Plants vs. Zombies characters, ignite an all-out war by crossing over enemy lines and much more. The Backyard Battleground is an immersive hub unlike anything that has been in a Plants vs. Zombies game before.

Better yet, Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is partnering with BioWare on an intergalactic pre-order bonus. Fans who pre-order the game will get access to a new Grass Effect Z7-Mech when they start Garden Warfare 2. Crafted by Dr. Zomboss, and inspired by one of the development team’s most favorite videogame franchises, this mech will help ensure Zomburbia’s galactic future. Gamers will have a blast playing with what was built to be the best-looking bane of plants everywhere. The Z7-Mech comes strapped with tools like the melee Zomni-tool, as well as interlocking ceramic plate armor with kinetic padding. This character is designed to augment tech, biotic, and weapons damage.
