Plants vs. Zombies Coming To PC In June
Plants vs. Zombie fans will be excited to learn that the recent release Garden Warfare will be available via EA’s Origin and other retailers for PC from June 27th. Since the game’s release earlier this year on Xbox One and Xbox 360, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare has attracted global attention as critics and fans alike have praised the game for being an unconventional shooter with an amazing blend of humour.
“We’ve had an amazing response form players since launching the Xbox platforms and cant wait for PC players to join the party this summer” says Brian Lindley, producer on Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. “The PC version has all the great content that we have put out since launch like “Garden Variety” and “Zomboss Down” for players to enjoy from the start.” Players can now pre-order the Origin Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes two Booster Packs, in-game coins and an exclusive character customisation pack.

More Final Fantasy Coming To Steam
This week, Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy III, one of the best loved games from the timeless RPG series, is “coming soon” to Steam. Following its initial release in Japan in 1990, Final Fantasy III became the first title in the Final Fantasy series to sell over a million copies, and this announced to the world that Square Enix’s classic RPG saga was here to stay. The game first reached North American and European shelves in 2006 when it launched as a 3D remake on the Nintendo DS, which also sold over a million copies worldwide. For this latest release, the iOS port will serve as the basis for the game, though it has been optimised for PC gaming. The official release on Steam will see new-and-improved 3D visuals and story sequences, Steam trading cards and achievements, and new visuals for the job mastery cards.

In Lost Civilisation, players take on the role of Suzanne, an amateur archaeologist, as she races to unearth the mystery of a forgotten civilisation and rescue her kidnapped fiancé. The great thing about this game is that it features over 70 richly detailed and animated scenes, eerie sound effects, and a very refreshing variety of challenges ranging from clever brainteasers, to eye-catching interactive mini-games.
Lost Civilisation was released on PC and Mac via Steam and the Phoenix online store last month.
