EA Teases 'Grass Effect' for E3 Reveal

EA is teasing something called Grass Effect, to be announced at E3 in June.

Teased via the official Plants vs. Zombies Facebook page, Grass Effect would seem to be a Mass Effect and Plants vs. Zombies mash-up, combining elements of BioWare’s sci-fi epic and PopCap’s garden defence title, Plants vs. Zombies.

The caption for the image (which you can see below) reads, “Plants vs. … Reapers? #EAE3,” suggesting that the title will be announced at next month’s E3 event in L.A..

Obviously, we don’t know what platform the game will be arriving on, though the original Plants vs. Zombies appeared on every game device ever ever ever. So take from that what you will.

lol.. Okay
I'll play it. I got the original game on PC. I love tower defense games.
If anyone hasn't tried it yet, go play defense grid. That's another good tower defense game on XBLA

I don't see anything 'Mass Effect' about those 5 plants. This is rubbish.

The bevel on the logo looks so poorly done that I'm starting to think that this is a joke. Hilarious though.

New plants, new "zombies," new environments; as long as they keep the humor of the original PvZ, I'll be all over this.

for some reason, i never could get into tower defense games, even when they piggyback their marketing on an already popular game.

yawn @ at all the anti-EA comments, how about we judge the game on its merits when its released rather than act like a bunch of kiddies
Loved PvZ and own it on several formats, looking for at the minimum more of the same

Just a thought, but wasn't EA probing about a possible PvZ shooting game a while back? Think this has any connection...?

It's probably not actually a game that combines the two series' but rather a hint that they will have an announcements for new games in each.
