This past weekend, EA quietly began rolling out invites for their upcoming Plants vs. Zombies shooter, codename ‘Picnic’. The game remains unannounced, but fans have speculated that it is most likely Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 3, especially since the game is being developed by the same team that created the first Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.
Codename Picnic Closed Alpha Playtest
Invitations to the Picnic Closed Alpha playtest went out over the weekend. Although information regarding the playtest is marked as confidential, news of the PvZ playtest spread to the PvZ Garden Warfare subreddit like wildfire. The Picnic Closed Alpha playtest is available exclusively for console players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. There’s no word on whether the playtest will come to PC.
According to screenshots of the invitation, players who are interested in participating the Picnic Closed Alpha can sign up on the EA Community Playtesting website. The playtest is invite-only and is exclusively for those who have previously enrolled in the EA Community Playtesting program. “The Picnic Closed Alpha will give registered players a first glimpse into the new game,” says the invitation.
It seems the PvZ team at PopCap have had their hands full lately. News of the Picnic Closed Alpha playtest comes less than a week after the new Tale of the Taco content update hit Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2. The update adds new weekly game modes and in-game rewards to the zany shooter, which should help keep fans occupied until the next game is officially announced.
