Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 an Xbox Exclusive?

EA releases a teaser trailer for Plants VS. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 promising details at the Xbox E3 conference

Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare was one of the biggest success stories EA has had in recent memory, spinning the Plants Vs. Zombies gameplay style on its head. Taking the tower defense style game and firing it into the world of team-based shooters. Creating a game an insane gameplay experience that is tough to match. The game was such a huge success that a sequel was only natural, but gamers believed that was a long ways off. Today EA and PopCap Games surprised everyone with a teaser trailer announcing Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.

The teaser doesn’t tell us much about the upcoming sequel other than gamers should “get ready to soil their plant” showing the games comedy style hasn’t changed. Despite the lack of details the trailer offers its still exciting for gamers to know that a sequel to Garden Warfare is on its way. The strange thing about the announcement is that at the end it states that gamers will learn about the game at the Xbox E3 conference on June 15. Kicking off rumors that Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 will be an Xbox One exclusive.

Earlier this year Xbox Boss Phil Spencer did state that Xbox would be putting a bigger focus on exclusive third-party titles this year. They’ve made good on that promise so far, landing Rise of the Tomb Raider as an Xbox One exclusive, adding weight to the idea of Garden Warfare 2 exclusive deal. Building on that is a post from NeoGAF user Nirolak that shows EA’s projected launch dates that places Garden Warfare 2 in the fourth quarter for console and PC.

Since the game is being displayed by Microsoft instead of EA itself there is a good chance it will only becoming to the Xbox One, leaving PS4 and Wii U owners behind. Of course none of this is certain and could turn out to be nothing more than pre-E3 rumors, gamers will have to wait for the Xbox E3 conference on June 15 to be sure.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
