Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 open beta begins Jan. 14 for Xbox One

It will soon be time to go back to the garden for some weird multiplayer action. Electronic Arts will offer Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners a chance to play the open beta test for Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 starting on January 14.

Here's a quick look at what players can expect in the open beta test:

  • Enjoy the Backyard Battleground (we're saving tons of great content and plenty of surprises for launch!), and play our King of the Hill-inspired mode, Flag of Power, where you can jump into the action right away and experience an immersive and escalating battle.
  • You'll also get to try out six new PvZ character classes, as well as a returning roster of your favorite characters from the original Garden Warfare.
  • Jump into our 24 person multiplayer modes – the new Herbal Assault and Gardens & Graveyards
  • You'll be able to play across four distinct maps – Moon Base Z, Frosty Creek, Z-Tech Factory, and Seeds of Time.

The open beta will end on January 18. The full version of Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 is due for release on Feb. 23.
