PvZ: Garden Warfare video looks at 'Gardens & Graveyards' mode

A new video for PopCap's upcoming shooter Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare gives an overview of the game's "Gardens & Graveyards" mode.

Gardens & Graveyards is a territory-control map that the video's narrator likens to the classic Conquest game type in the Battlefield series, but the video itself makes it seem more like the Control Point mode in Team Fortress 2: The Zombies must push forward to capture the Plants' bases, taking them one by one as the fight moves around the map.

The video shows off both offense and defense, as the Zombies set up teleporters to move around the maps and launch airstrikes from drones at defenders, and the Plants use teamwork to devour their foes not-quite-alive.

From the video, it is unclear if the Plants are given opportunities to recapture lost bases or will have maps where they are on the offensive, or if Gardens & Graveyards will always feature the Zombies assaulting their horticultural foes.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare hits Xbox 360, Xbox One this February, with a Windows PC version to follow.

Correction: An earlier draft of this post incorrectly described Garden Warfare. The game is not a free-to-play title.
