Plants Vs. Zombies 2 Lands A Close Release Date, As Well As A New Trailer
Plants Vs. Zombies ranks as one of my all-time favourite titles, and I must have spent hours playing in in lectures instead of paying attention, which would explain a lot about my current exam form. Yeah, let’s not go there. We’ve known PopCap were working on a sequel for some time now, but only recently did they revel Plants Vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time. Now you may think that’s a rather sarcastic name for the sequel, but new details and what seems like a launch trailer suggest it’s a fitting title in more ways than one.
It seems like the most logical of attack plans, the zombies have decided that the only way overcome the plants superior tactics and resilience is to launch an attack on the time stream itself, hunting for “brainz” across various different time periods. Of course, you as the mad botanist has figured out how to teleport your plants through the time stream as well, opening up this sequel to a host of new abilities and settings, such as ancient Egypt and the Caribbean.

Apparently the game will be made free-to-play, with microtransactions allowing player to purchase power-ups and new means to interact directly with zombies via the touch screen. Yes, touch screens. Plants Vs. Zombies 2 will launch exclusively on iOS devices on the 18th of July, and since PopCap has kept quiet about a PC version, all we can do is hope that it’s a timed exclusive.
Allen Murray, Senior Producer for Plants vs. Zombies 2 had this to say in an official press release:
“It’s about time!. We’re confident that players will see the love and attention we’ve put into this game. We’ve created wild new ways to experience the plants and zombies you know and love as well as packing the game with tons of completely new content, and we’re still hard at work coming up with even more cool stuff that will keep Plants vs. Zombies 2 fresh and evolving in the months and years following launch.”
So who can’t wait to start planting sunflowers and upgrading those repeaters? Better yet, who can’t wait to see what other plants will be joining us from the various time streams?
