PopCap Games Announces Peggle(TM) 2 for the Xbox 360, Videogame and Entertainment System

PopCap Games announced that Peggle(TM) 2 is coming for the Xbox 360, videogame and entertainment system on May 7 worldwide. Not only will the game include the lovable Peggle Masters that players have gotten a chance to work alongside, but the Xbox 360 version will have multiplayer Duel Mode so players can challenge their friends on the couch or online. Peggle 2 has become more magical with the first installment of downloadable content available for Xbox One, the all-in-one games entertainment system from Microsoft, which features the awesome multiplayer Duel Mode -- a profound new experience that's completely and utterly free. In a smart match, a private match or just relaxing on the couch, players can now compete against each other on the same board and take turns shooting pegs and demolishing bricks in an ultimate test of Peggle skill. Just as in the classic original, Peggle 2 combines elements of pinball, pachinko and billiards and adds liberal doses of whimsy, fun, excitement and challenge -- not to mention rainbows and a fifth of Beethoven. Peggle 2 will be available for Xbox 360 starting on May 7 in North America and in Europe.

PopCap Games Releases Plants Vs. Zombies(TM) Garden Warfare

PopCap Games released Plants vs. Zombies(TM) Garden Warfare, a best-in-class multiplayer shooter that combines the power of the Frostbite(TM) 3 engine with the fresh humor, wild action and vibrant landscapes of the incredibly popular Plants vs. Zombies series. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare lets players choose a side and wage all-out war on their plant or zombie enemies in a variety of gameplay modes and with a jaw-dropping arsenal of outrageous weapons. Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare features adored favorites in the series, such as the Peashooter and Sunflower, along with a new cast of characters including Ice Cactus, Hot Rod Chomper and all the Zombies players can get their hands on. Players can jump into three distinct modes including two 12 vs. 12 competitive multiplayer modes called 'Garden & Graveyards' and 'Team Vanquish,' or a four-player co-operative mode called 'Garden Ops.' An amazingly deep set of customization options gives players an opportunity to personalize plants and zombies with fun costumes, items, hats and more, some of which give all-new abilities to each of the characters. Two additional modes will be available exclusively on Xbox(R) One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. The first allows for local cooperative split screen so players can team up with a friend on the couch, and the second is Boss Mode which allows for a third friend to join via a SmartGlass device to support their teams with a top-down view of the battlefield from where they can drop health, artillery strikes and more. Boss mode is also available on Kinect for a full screen experience.
