Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare is getting another free update, complete with a new map and game mode. The "Tactical Taco Party" update will hit Xbox systems tomorrow, July 1, and a new trailer walks players through the features.
The new map is called Jewel Junction, and centers around a train that chugs its way through the center at regular intervals. The video also teases some cameo appearances. A new game mode, Vanquish Confirmed, works just like "Kill Confirmed" in the Call of Duty series. You can take down an opponent, but you only get credit for it if you pick up a token they left behind.
Several improvements are coming in the update as well, including an overhauled matchmaking system, and new special waves and character variants. The trailer shows off a citrus cactus, perfect for sipping on hot summer days.
The trailer is hosted by Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb, so this would seem to be a timed exclusive for Xbox. Other systems are likely to follow later. Check out the trailer below.
