Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare

PopCap’s Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare still has 8 million players, almost two years after its 2014 release. The info comes via an adorable infographic that PopCap put together, detailing how many matches have been played and what the most popular characters are.

Gotta love those Heal Beams.

Our own Nicole Tanner was pretty disappointed that most players favor the Peashooters and Foot Soldiers, which are the most basic classes you can play as.

We taught our Tech-Less Mom, Meredith Bland, to give Zombies a chance when she played Garden Warfare with her kids. She doesn’t play a lot of shooters, so you can guess how that went. Garden Warfare was a great take on the Plants Vs. Zombies theme though, reimagining the mobile game as a third-person shooter where teams of plants face off against teams of zombies.

It can be played online, or with local co-op.

Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 was announced this year, and Nicole Tanner got to play it at PAX Prime. She says it looks just as good as the first game, and she liked the new Imp character class on the Zombie team. Garden Warfare 2 comes out on February 23, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Until then, 8 million players will have to content themselves with their billions of bean bombs in the original Garden Warfare.
