Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare adds free Zomboss Down DLC photo
Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare adds free Zomboss Down DLC
by Jordan Devore

I'm not sure which alternate dimension Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare came from or how it got here but PopCap's wacky third-person shooter has been a pleasant surprise. Against all odds, the game keeps on giving: another free DLC pack called Zomboss Down is out today, adding eight new characters and the Cactus Canyon map for Gardens and Graveyards mode.

The character level cap has also been increased to level 30, complete with new challenges to conquer, and there are 200+ customization items for the new cast of plants and zombies. Even though the last DLC release was free, I'm still surprised to see this one follow the same plan and PopCap not overwhelm players with microtransactions. Gosh, what a terrific game.

You can play as Bruce Lee in EA Sports UFC

Legendary martial artist Bruce Lee will be a playable character in EA Sports UFC and with that knowledge, I can't imagine why you'd choose to play as anyone else. Now, EA is taking the usual "pre-order the game for access" ro...

There is a GIANT shark in Battlefield 4

Battlefield 4 has a ton of easter eggs. Such as the case with the Megalodon, which can be discovered in the Naval Strike DLC on the Nansha Strike map. And yes, you will die if you get caught underneath its jump.
