Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare gets micro-transactions

"Players will be given the option to purchase coins"

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is the latest EA title to offer gamers the chance to speed up their progress with micro-transactions. The changes will be made to the game sometime this week.

"Players will be given the option to purchase coins from the Sticker Shop, which allows players the ability to access new packs and character content more quickly - all the same content that can be earned through regular gameplay," said producer Brian Lindley.

"Now you have the choice to play your way; you can play to get new packs and content via earned coins in the game, or you can purchase coins to get more of the packs and content you want right away."

The game was developed by PopCap and released in February, and soon after PopCap marketing manager Gary Clay confirmed on Twitter that all DLC for the title would be free. The game is currently only available on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, and is priced at around £30.
