Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 Going Into Beta Next Week

Garden Warfare 2

The open beta for Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 kicks off next week for the console players and it will give us all a nice look at Garden Warfare 2's new Heroes and much more

If February 23rd is too far off for you to play Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 then you can try to get in on the ground floor of the game as PopCap Games is bringing us all a multiplayer beta next week. In fact it will be running from the 14th to the 18th of next week as long as you are looking to play Garden Warfare 2 on your PS4 and/or Xbox One. All of you PC players will have to wait it out longer but at least you won't have to experience all of the bugs that may still be in Garden Warfare 2 on the software side or the server side. Tradeoffs…

If you are looking to take part in the Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 beta next week here's what you need to do. On January 14th download the multiplayer beta via your system's video game store and then spin it up. No need for any convoluted or random access. All you need to do is download Garden Warfare 2, has some extra time, and put the rest of your video games on the back burner for the time being. Not too shabby.

Of course this beta won't give you all the bells and whistles that will be coming to Garden Warfare 2 at full launch but it will give you access to try out the six new heroes that are coming to the game. Also you will be able to check out a few of the new modes and maps that PopCap Games have put together to make Plants Vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 a bigger and badder title than the last. You can see some of these in the following trailer as well as a nice description of what will be accessible in the Garden Warfare 2 beta once it finally kicks off next Thursday.
