Mass Effect fans can enjoy a loving tribute to their favourite series in Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.

Garden Warfare 2’s “Grass Effect” content is more than just a cosmetic nod. It introduces the Z7-Mech, which was designed in collaboration with BioWare.

It looks a little bit like a cross between an Atlas and N7 armour, and has a sweet omnitool blade as well as an auto rifle. The video below goes behind the scenes on its creation.
