PopCap revealed Wednesday post-launch content for "Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare," the tower defense third-person shooter for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.

Picked up by MP1ST, the game's official Twitter account teased the "AMAZINGLY HILARIOUS" add-on contents. Additionally, the game's level cap will be raised to 80 when the first content drops. PopCap’s senior franchise marketing manager Gary Clay clarified on Twitter that DLC for "Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare" will be free.

Clay also stated there are no current plans for microtransactions for the game. PopCap producer Brian Lindley said in February there will be no microtransactions for "Garden Warfare" at launch, but the company would look at "in-game metrics and player feedback" to see where they go next. Considering the backlash "Plants vs Zombies 2" received for injecting microtransactions in its tutorials and the praise "Garden Warfare" received for getting rid of them, PopCap will hopefully stay free from in-game purchases.
