The zombies are ready to feast on some fresh meat: PlayStation owners.

Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare is heading to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on Aug. 19, publisher Electronic Arts announced today. The multiplayer-only title, which transforms PopCap Games’s whimsical tower defense series into a class-based third-person shooter, came out on Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Feb. 25. A PC version is coming out on June 24.

Both the PS3 and PS4 discs include everything from the original game, as well as the downloadable content Zomboss Down and Garden Variety Pack. The PS4 has two modes that were previously exclusive to the Xbox One: split-screen multiplayer in Garden Ops and the top-down Boss mode. The latter requires either a PlayStation Vita or a device using the iOS PlayStation app.

Garden Warfare also supports Remote Play on PS4, so if you don’t want to get out of bed, you can play it on your PS Vita instead.

GamesBeat writer Andrew Podolsky reviewed the game on Xbox One and said that while it’s a competent shooter, it lacked “a lot of imagination.”
