The folks at Popcap were at E3 2014 giving us a sneak peek at the next update for Plants Vs Zombies 2. The mushrooms you know and love from the original game are back, offering a unique way to gather sunshine points at nighttime. Now the free mushroom attackers will wither away over time, but you also have a new plant which will make a zombie drop additional sunshine as it shambles towards your stalwart front line.
The plant food power-up mechanic introduced in PvZ 2 also applies to the new plants; when fed, the biggest of the mushrooms will unload a volley of spore attacks and push enemies far back to where they started. The hypnosis mushroom is making a comeback as a premium plant which can turn enemies against their former undead brethren.
Speaking of walkers, these zombies are all getting a medieval overhaul. One new special zombie in particular has donned full plate armour, making it one of the toughest zombies in the game to date. Seeing as this update is titled "part 1", I'm eager to see how else the medieval theme spreads through Plants Vs Zombies 2. Expect the update to arrive on June 26th. How many of you guys are still playing the game? Any thoughts on seeing the familiar mushrooms again?
