EA Games Fall 2015 Preview: Star Wars: Battlefront, Plants vs. Zombies GW2 & More
Electronic Arts' Games hosted a preview for their Fall 2015 games and of course we had to be there. During the preview we got in some time with upcoming games families will enjoy including Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2, Star Wars: Battlefront, Need for Speed No Limits and Unravel (sorta)
Hands down my son's favorite game of the night was Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 and to be honest it was a fun game play with cool new features. Even if I'm not a fan of Zombies!
Title: Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2
Platforms: Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC
Developer: PopCap Games
Release Date: Spring 2016
ESRB Rating: RP
For the first time in franchise history, zombies have taken over Suburbia and plants are on the attack. Each faction has enlisted new characters to join the fight, including Rose, an all-powerful sorceress from the past that can turn zombies into playable goats and Captain Deadbeard, a crusty pirate that has been adrift for hundreds of years.
All the over-the-top fun takes place across 12 new immersive maps that are bursting with personality and humor, spanning everything from a Time Travel Theme Park to Moon Base Z.
Gamers will be able to kick start their Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2 experience with Backyard Battleground, an all-new dynamic hub and interactive environment that connects players to every map and mode, and brings to life all new ways to experience the PvZ universe through solo and social play.
For Star Wars fans, this is a great game that puts you into the action. Since there's lots of first person type of shooting, it's better for older teens and adults.
Title: Star Wars: Battlefront
Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC
Release Date: November 17, 2015
ESRB Rating: T for Teen

Title: Need for Speed No Limits
Release Date: September 29, 2015
Developed by EA’s Firemonkeys studio in Melbourne, in Need for Speed No Limits players everywhere will be encouraged to be reckless and respected through participating in electrifying race events, customizing their rides and building a fleet of real-world cars including the Ford Mustang GT, Toyota 86, BMW M4, Lamborghini Aventador, and Nissan GT-R (R35).
Need for Speed No Limits introduces a world that will continue to grow, and includes more than 900 race events, 100 player levels, more than 10 game modes, 38 stunning race courses and 30 different licensed cars at launch.
I wish we had more time with this game. We had to leave so didn't do any game play in. But from what I saw from the trailer and demo, it's an amazing game for those looking for something different. I'm leaning towards this game being my favorite pick of the night.
