Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 releases Feb. 23

We've seen the game in numerous videos, and it will take the franchise to new heights, or so the story goes. Still, Plants vs. Zombies fans couldn't get too excited, as they've still been waiting for information about when the latest installment in the series will be released. That changed today, with the launch date being officially announced. Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 will be arriving for gamers on multiple consoles on February 23, 2016.

The release date is in line with what we expected, as Electronic Arts had announced this past summer that the title would be released some time in early 2016. The company wants people to be excited, and as such it has been releasing regular videos showing off pre-alpha gameplay and new characters.

Keeping up with its video trend, the company posted yet another video about the game, but this one had that extra-special piece of information: the February 23 launch date. In that video, we also get a look at the Grass Effect Z7-Mech during gameplay with some narrative to go alongside it. The designer behind the mech machine talked briefly about the creation, among others.

The video's only 1:30 minutes long, so give it a watch if you have a moment to spare. You can also check out more gameplay footage and the new characters coming with the new installment here. Hit up the SlashGear Gaming Hub for more video game news!

Garden Warfare 2 pre-orders are now available; the game will arrive on PlayStation 4, Windows and Xbox One.
