Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare Wont Have Microtransactions


Good news for those who despise the premise of paying for things inside a game after purchasing the game, PopCap Games has announced that Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare will launch without microtransactions.

This was confirmed by studio producer Brian Lindley while speaking with Gamespot.

Lindley, however, wouldn’t confirm that microtransactions wouldn’t be a part of the game’s future. He simply stated that the studio will look at the in-game metrics and feedback from players to determine how best to move forward with the game.

In terms of the game’s resolution, Lindley told Gamespot the game will run at 1080p.

“On next-gen consoles, players can experience all EA games at 1080p,” he said. “Some are rendered natively, others are up-scaled by the next-gen hardware systems. Either way, the visuals are stunning and the gameplay is impeccable, regardless of platform.”

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare launches on February 25 for Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. It will cost users $40 on  Xbox One, and $30 for the other two platforms.

There are no plans in place to bring the game to PlayStation consoles.
