The Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 multiplayer open beta will go live January 14 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The open beta will run until January 18 and will showcase the exciting new modes, hilarious new characters and Backyard Battleground, an all-new dynamic environment that connects players to every map and mode, helping bring to life more ways to experience the Plants vs. Zombies universe.
The multiplayer beta will be open to all PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players and you’ll be able to download the game when the beta opens next week. There will be six new character classes in addition to the returning roster from the original Garden Warfare and players will be able to jump into 24-player sessions in the new Herbal Assault and Gardens & Graveyards modes.
In total, the beta will have four distinct maps available: Moon Base Z, Frosty Creek, Z-Tech Factory and Seeds of Time. Players can also check out the game’s King of the Hill-inspired mode called Flag of Power.
