The goal for you is to raise the flag in victory, but it is way easier said than done.

The ‘Quest Board’ is updated all of the time with new adventures for you to play and you will be rewarded for each of the events that you have completed. You will notice that completing these challenges will give you a boost to your stats, including an XP multiplier.
Some New Game Modes and Maps- You will notice that in “Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare 2” beta there are two new maps you can be a part of, and they are massive maps at that. There is a 24-player multiplayer match as well and this is really cool. The ‘Herbal Assault’ which is found on Moon Base Z map is a new game mode in which you have to play as the plants. On the Seeds of Time map, you will find ‘Gardens and Graveyards’ which is when you begin zombie attacks and also have to begin plant defenses.
The plants have to try to defend the gardens and at the same time prevent the zombies from coming around and getting a hold of them. The modes are rotated everyday and you will find Gnome Bomb, Vanquish Confirmed, Team Vanquish, and Suburbination. The Maps will also include Frosty Creek and Z-Tech Factory.
