Grass Effect N7 Mech revealed for Garden Warfare 2

PopCap Games Took the Stage at Gamescom to reveal an all new trailer & info for Plants vs. Zombies Garden warfare 2

EA’s blistering day at Gamescom has finally wrapped after they unleashed a treasure trove of information about several of their upcoming games. A big part of their showcase was PopCap Games upcoming Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2. Excitement about the sequel to their breakout hit has been growing ever since it was announced. Last month at E3 we saw a huge amount of gameplay and great new details, but PopCap wasn’t finished yet.

They brought plenty of ammunition to Gamescom to keep the hype train rolling. First by revealing an all-new gameplay trailer called Moon Base Z. The almost two-minute long trailer shows that Garden Warfare 2 won’t be sticking players in nothing but suburban warzones. The plants will also be making an assault on the zombies moon base. Thwarting a dastardly plan involving a giant magnet.

Moon Base Z, as the area is called, will be filled with space to give players a chance to plan their assault from any angle. Moon Base Z is the perfect playground for the insane non-stop action that Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare is so famous for. Hopefully, Moon Base Z is an example of how open to strategy Garden Warfare 2’s other 11 other maps will be like. Either way PopCap wasn’t finished showing off just yet.

They took the opportunity at Gamescom to introduce the first of what we can expect to be many pre-order exclusive items. They announced a partnership with legendary RPG maker Bioware to create unique content for Garden warfare 2. Gamers who pre-order the game will have access to the Grass Effect Z7-Mech (playing off Shepard’s N7 rank in Mass Effect).

The Grass Effect Z7-Mech was constructed by Dr. Zomboss to protect Zomburia’s galactic future. The mech will be sporting a Zomni-tool on top of “interlocking ceramic plate armor with kinetic padding.” It’s designed to augment the damage of other abilities like biotic and tech. The Grass Effect Z7 almost feels like EA and PopCap took the Mass Effect joke too far but it still looks like it will be a fantastic toy for players.

What do you think of the Grass Effect N7-Mech and the newly revealed Moon Base Z map? Do you plan to pre-order Garden Warfare 2 to get a hold of all the goodies its sure to offer? Sound off in the comments below.

It’s intriguing to note that the launch of the long-awaited piracy simulator Skull and Bones has led to a notable increase in players returning to Ubisoft’s previous game, the pirate-themed Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.

PCGamesN gathered data from SteamDB and observed that on February 15, 2024, the day before Skull and Bones launched, approximately 971 players were simultaneously playing Black Flag. By the 16th, the figure had nearly doubled, hitting 1,662. By the 17th, the number had increased to 2600, and by the 18th, it reached 3,226. After a week of continuous gameplay, a new peak was achieved on the 26th, with 3,594 players online simultaneously. With the game’s peak hitting 16K a decade ago, it’s a fascinating illustration of how success can benefit everyone involved, pun intended.

One can’t help but sympathize with developer Ubisoft Singapore in this situation. We thoroughly appreciated Skull and Bones after overcoming the initial comparison to Black Flag, which was a point of contention in our review. Ubisoft’s latest release faces a major challenge due to players’ existing expectations and a lack of clear direction for several years.

As an Epic Store exclusive, it’s challenging to gauge the performance of Skull and Bones, especially since console numbers have not been disclosed. Insider Gaming cites sources within the company who claim that 850,000 people have downloaded the game, with the eight-hour free trial that Ubisoft is offering contributing to this figure. It’s worth noting that the developers described the game as top-tier quality and were adamant about pricing it at $70.
Are you feeling inspired to revisit Black Flag after trying out Skull and Bones? What are your thoughts on Skull and Bones if you’ve had the opportunity to try it out? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

It’s astonishing that two years have passed since a standout Elden Ring player emerged victorious, solidifying their claim to the Elden Lord throne by engaging in repetitive ritual battles. The character known as Let Me Solo Her valiantly defeated the game’s toughest boss on behalf of players, earning legendary status in the gaming community.

Currently, LMSH is engaged in a battle against Malenia but is eagerly anticipating Shadow of the Erdtree as a potential opportunity to end the conflict. After the DLC was announced, IGN interviewed a player with extensive experience in Elden Ring, boasting over 1,200 hours of gameplay. They claim to have defeated Malenia thousands of times and even completed the game using a unique mod.

LMSH is eagerly anticipating Shadow of the Erdtree, expressing confidence in director Hidetaka Miyazaki’s ability to deliver another outstanding masterpiece for players to enjoy. The terrifying Messmer, who Miyazaki confirmed to be a significant character in the DLC and on par with other potent figures in the game, is the new enemy in LMSH, as depicted above. Could this be a new adversary for LMSH?

The upcoming DLC for Elden Ring, Shadow of the Erdtree, is highly anticipated and is set to release on June 21st for PS5 and PS4. Do you think LMSH will be able to progress? Or do you think they are destined to dance with Malenia forever? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
