The solo gameplay is back for Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2, as expected, only this time it looks like some great tweaks have happened to give us all a deeper and over-the-top experience as we play. Well at least in the ways that PopCap Games thinks we all want to. In this instance it has to do with having more heroes in your Plants Vs Zombies team and then adding in a whole lot of new and "crazy" options to further screw with everything. As if Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 wasn't going to be wacky enough right?
One the bigger changes for solo play here in Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 will be the fact that you can now select up to four different characters to go into battle with. Three of them of course will be AI controlled but you can hot-swap between all of them at any time during the match. Of course you'll want to do this often if you want to level any of them as each character only gains XP while you are currently playing them and not when the AI is in control. Let's just hope that Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 has upgraded their AI to be helpful and not a burden.
If you tire of the same old grind in Plants Vs Zombies here though, PopCap Games has also added in what are called Crazy Settings to mix up the fun. These are alterations to the solo play you will be experiencing in the game and not the multiplayer, obviously, and add in the usual suspects of Unlimited Ammo, Low Gravity, and Super Speed. You can see the currently list of Crazy Settings for Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2's solo play just below as well as the trailer showing them all off.
Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 — Solo Play
I wasn't able to tell from the above video but if you are able to collect XP for these characters while using the Crazy Settings in Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 I can see things getting abused. Like turning on Low Gravity, Unlimited Ammo, Speed, and Low Health. That combo seems to point to a quick grind for XP here as I see it for even the most novice of players in the Plants Vs Zombies universe. This could just be me though…
How do you feel about the new Crazy Settings in Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 that we have now?
