Garden Warfare 3, is that you?
Last month EA started sending out invites to a closed alpha test for a new unannounced Plants vs. Zombies shooter game codenamed “Picnic”. Seems like the game’s official title has now been confirmed through the trademark. And also the game is being worked on by the Garden Warfare team. Anyone else smells GW 3 yet? [Source – Gematsu]
The title was also previously noticed in a leaked image from source code for GW 2.
And if we take the reward redemption date to be true, the game is set to launch by the end of this year. Though it could just be a placeholder for the moment, so take it with a grain of salt.
The game’s page also mistakenly appeared on the official site for a while, before being removed. But we managed to grab a screenshot of the description.
According to the leak, the game will have 20 character classes, a social region and three free-roam regions, and nine PvP modes including a 4v4 battle arena.
Also, EA previously said in its financial report that a new Plants vs. Zombies game will be arriving to PC this year. And as PvZ 3 is mobile-only, I think we can safely assume that Battle for Neighborville is arriving soon.
