Plants Vs. Zombies 'Intra-Active' Theme Park Attraction Coming Next Year

Zombies have already taken over the garden, and now they’re coming to the Carowinds theme park in North Carolina. A new “intra-active” attraction based on the Plants vs. Zombies franchise is scheduled to open in Spring 2016.

Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare: 3Z Arena, while still in a planning phase based on the released concept art, features two teams of 34 players in a theater setting equipped with motion seats and hand-held laser devices. Teams compete against each other on two large TV screens featuring a typical backyard setting from the Plants vs. Zombies universe.

Players shoot at the screens and rack up scores as they go. The “intra-active” element of the attraction means that players can interact with the other team’s screen, though it's unconfirmed if players can do anything like steal points or disrupt the opposing team's progress.

Devil May Cry has one of slickest visual styles in gaming, and you can bask in its coolness with Devil May Cry 3142: Graphic Arts. The 224-page book collects works from the first four games, as well as the anime series.

Within its pages are illustrations and concept art of character models, weapons, creatures and locations – plus interviews with series artists and developers. A detailed creator commentary provides insight on the creations behind mainstay characters like Vergil, Trish, Nero, and that Dante guy.   

Oh, and for those who haven’t picked up on the significance of the 3142 title, the number represents the chronological order of the series. Devil May Cry 3 is the earliest point in the timeline, and the not-so-wonderful Devil May Cry 2 is the latest.
