Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 – Open Beta

The open Beta is set to release on January 14th. PopCap boasts that the original Garden Warfare has had about 8 million players that have participated in a collective 1.4 billion games.  Those are impressive numbers and I for one will be adding a plus 1 to the PS4 version on the 14th. The new trailer for the game is about as goofy as the game itself. In saying that it is still a shit ton of fun to pay and highly addictive. Something that the developer is doing that is still quite unheard of is that you are able to transfer almost all of your unlocked character from GW1 to GW2, which means you won’t be starting from scratch when the game hits!
