PopCap Games took to Major Nelson’s blog to detail a new Battlefield 4-like Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare mode called “Gardens and Graveyards”.

Producer Brian Lindley says the new 24-player mode is a “bit of a mix between […] Battlefield‘s Rush and Conquest modes,” with a bit of the franchise’s traditional tower defence gameplay thrown in for good measure.

In the mode, the zombie faction will try to capture garden bases and turn them into graveyards, with plants defending. If the zombies are successfull, the action moves down the map. Sounds like “Rush” to us.

Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare will be available from 18 February, first on Xbox One.
