The criminally slept on Garden Warfare is getting a sequel!
There is a very comprehensive list of all the features over at neogaf, so all thanks to ElzarTheBam as I'm copy pasta-ing his post from there to here:
Price: $60 as opposed to the original being $40 (Although the original at launch had far less content).
Comes out at the same time on XB/PS4/PC
Out in the spring 2016 timeframe
All DLC content to be made avaible free
Can play any mode in split screen (as opposed to one in the original game)
Can play any mode solo against AI bots
12 new Maps
Over 100 variant characters (40 being new)
Can transfer unlocked PvZ1 characters ( not all, but most, I assume licencing issues with Cheetos and Aquafresh being the ones that can't transfer)
New 24 player Herbal Assault mode
Garden Ops as Zombies this time,named graveyards ops, but garden ops also returns
Sticker packs returns
Will be available in a standard and delux edition (delux edition gives you 3 characters, one being random and some coins to get started)
Zomboss Factory, this level features warps that take you to a different areas in the level.
Time Travel Park, this level also features warps, but instead they take you to different time periods instead!
Also teased were a snow themed level, and a level set on the moon featuring zero gravity.
Generally, maps in the sequel are going to be larger with more areas to explore.
The game will have 40 new characters/variants, and with the ability to bring in most GW1 characters, over a 100 is promised.
14 Classes overall (6 being new).
All modes can be played solo against AI, in split screen, or online.
Graveyards ops, Garden ops from the first game but in reverse, with plants attacking. Seems very similar and instead of plant pots you enable different type of turrets around the levels.
24 player herbal assault, unsure what this is right now, person really hoping for Rush.
Gardens and Graveyards returns.
Garden Ops returns.
