‘PvZ: Garden Warfare’ would rather make you smile than wow with big set pieces

Multiplayer console games have become rather serious affairs as players compete to win in increasingly realistic environments and large set piece events. Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 will largely eschew trying to impress with skyscrapers falling by going for laughs instead.

When asked if gamers take games too seriously, PopCap Games Producer Brian Lindley told Examiner: “Yes I absolutely would [like to see more light-hearted games release]. For us as a team, it’s actually been really liberating to focus on making a game that’s really just about making you smile versus kind of wowing you with big set piece moments.”

“I absolutely think the more we can inject humor into these experiences, the better. At the end of the day, it’s about having fun and enjoying yourself, and yeah, you get that when you have serious, competitive, immersive experiences, but it’s also fun just to sit back and have some silliness and zaniness injecting itself into the experience from time to time.”

Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is due out Feb. 18 for the Xbox One and Xbox 360.
