When I reviewed Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, it was my first experience of the first person side of PopCap’s classic take on the defence title. It’s great fun and EA and PopCap have released a new free update for the game.
Titled Trouble in Zombopolis Part One, this huge new content adds a giant new map, two crazy characters and over 1,200 new character customisation items. This really is a huge update, weighing in at a hefty 5.3GB. This will add Breakfast Brainz and Toxic Citron, pictured above.
Dive into Zombopolis, the biggest zombie map ever created. Here, Dr. Zomboss and the zombies are plotting to build a Mega Zombot that may put the fate of plant-kind in grave danger.
In addition to the new massive map, new characters and new items, Trouble in Zombopolis will also offer gameplay balancing.
Zombopolis will open up to players as the most massive zombie city ever. This new Herbal Assault map gives the player sewers, streets, buildings and more to battle it out in. Take control of the toaster helmeted Breakfast Brainz who can fire waffles from his fists to ward off the invading plants. Alternatively, handle Toxic Citron, sporting some new abilities over regular Citron.
Part of the balancing improvements include increasing Sunflower’s damage output and reducing Electro Brainz damage. The developer have improved the Boat Blast Mini-Game in the docks in the Backyard Battleground. Compete with friends in a new leaderboard for this part of the game.
There is also a whole ream of bug fixes for characters, quests and general in-game goodness. These can be found on the official PvZGW2 blog here.
So, fire up Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 and expect to be introduced to Trouble in Zombopolis part one and all the content and fixes that it contains.
Here’s the launch trailer, it’s available now.
