First unveiled at E3 2015, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 will release on February 23, 2016 in North America and February 25, 2016 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, EA announced today.

In the new gameplay trailer from PopCap Vancouver, we get a look at the Grass Effect Z7-Mech, which is included with all pre-orders. They add, “Inspired by one of the development team’s favorite video game franchises, PopCap Vancouver worked in close partnership with BioWare to create this one-of-a-kind mech that comes loaded with the melee Zomni-tool, kinetic padding, and a biotic ability ‘Pull’ to quickly close the gap between you and the plant menace.”

Along with the Grass Effect Z7-Mech, Garden Warfare 2 pre-orders also coming with an emoji pack that includes 14 all-new emoji-style accessories to customize each character class with.

Here’s the description for Garden Warfare 2:

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 goes above and beyond to deliver the funniest, craziest most over-the-top shooter yet. Players can go on the offensive as the plants in all-new modes including the 24-player Herbal Assault mode, or rally the zombies together and defend against the plants in the 4-player co-op mode, Graveyard Ops. From the Great White North to Moon Base Z, all the hilarious action takes place across 12 fresh maps that are bursting with life and humor. Join the fight for Suburbia with six new character classes and over one hundred unique characters to collect.

Experience even more ways to play, including the Backyard Battleground; players will have the freedom to explore this interactive environment by themselves or with friends. The Backyard Battleground is a wild playground with dynamic events and tons to discover, and is unlike anything that has been in a Plants vs. Zombies game before.

Creative Director Justin Wiebe said PopCap is “thrilled” to bring out Garden Warfare 2 earlier than the expected spring 2016 launch. “This is a crazy shooter filled with fan-requested features as well as all-new experiences that will make this unlike any other game in the genre,” he adds.
