PopCap is always full of surprises, and their latest title is no different. While it is set in the Plants vs. Zombies franchise, Garden Warfare for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC is an action game powered by the Frostbite 3 engine. It sounds delightfully absurd and is something I’m definitely looking forward to trying myself. The E3 trailer and additional details are below.

SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–PopCap Games, a worldwide leader in mobile and social games and a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA), today introduced Plants vs. Zombies™ Garden Warfare exclusively first on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is a stunning new game originated from the famed PvZ franchise that faithfully pays homage to the action genre while retaining the signature quirky humor, depth and accessibility fans expect from a PvZ game. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare will launch in spring 2014.
