PopCap Games has done it again, releasing a second free DLC pack for Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. "Zomboss Down" will be available today for both Xbox One and Xbox 360 Garden Warfare players to download. Included in the DLC are eight playable characters (one for each class on each side), over 200 customizations, a level cap rise from 20 to 30 for each character and challenges to go along with each level, plus a map. Basically, if anyone thought they were done with Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare -- they were wrong.
While PopCap didn't provide a full, in-detail list of the items players will be able to pick up in-game, they do mention a few just to tease us:
- Gardens and Graveyards Map - In Zomboss Down the plants have blasted down Dr. Zomboss’s blimp and unleashed packs of zombies, who are now roaming the desert and battling their way through the wreckage to reach the local golf course. This golf course doubles as a super-secret facility housing a Cactus army on the unbelievable new Gardens and Graveyards Map, Cactus Canyon.
- Eight Classes - Including Archeologist Zombie, the Wrestling Star Zombie, the Law Pea and the Sun Pharaoh
- Over 200 Customizations - [W]eapon upgrades and skins for new characters, new accessories, tattoos and facial hair, and even more.
- Level Cap Raise from 20 to 30
- Additional Challenges for Each Level
It should be noted fot those that haven't played Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare before that this sort of DLC doesn't just become freely available to all players after its released. Each and every player has to earn in-game currency with which they can buy card packs, which are filled with a random assortment of items. Acquire a specific class or item may take days or even weeks of playing. It's really a lot like Team Fortress 2 in this regard.
While I enjoyed myself some Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, it's difficult to consider going back at this point. Sure, cool customization options are great, but I know that with all the additional classes it will be even harder to get the cards I need to unlock things I want. Sure, a lot of the fun is the randomness related to what each player acquires, but I tend to prefer getting stuff that's related to what I find fun to play. Eh, free DLC is free DLC!
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is currently available on both Xbox One and Xbox 360, with a PC release planned sometime in the future. The "Zomboss Down" DLC is free and should be available at some point today for download.
