Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Keeps Getting Better

I think it’s safe to say that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare has been the most pleasant surprise of my next gen experience. I’ve played Killer Instinct, Battlefield 4, Titanfall and more, but PvZ: GW is the one that keeps bringing me back. EA and PopCap have showed an impressive amount of support for the game since its release in late February, and this week’s latest batch of DLC looks like it will be a blast as well.

The Western-themed “Zomboss Down” features eight new characters and a new map, and is the second free DLC pack for PvZ: GW. Last month, the “Garden Variety” DLC pack was released, which featured a slew of new abilities, a new map and a new game mode.

If you have an Xbox One and haven’t checked the game out yet, I highly recommend it. You can grab it for $40, and I thought it was worth the money before the two free DLC packs. And as I mentioned in a previous post, it’s one of the few shooters that’s appropriate for kids while still being a blast for adults to play. On the Xbox One, the game features a split-screen co-op mode as well.
