The console beta for Popcap’s Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is live this weekend, giving players a tiny taste of the new maps and modes in next month’s shooter sequel. My favorite part so far? The free-roaming playground that’s replaced the first game’s menus.
The original Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is pretty great. Popcap spent more than a year supplying the budget-priced game with free new content, and its (generally younger) fanbase really seem to dig it. I liked it so much I glued the case to my ceiling over a spider that may or may not be completely dead.
