One of the very few games that managed to become such a huge hit to people of all ages is Plants vs. Zombies. PopCap Games created the Plants vs. Zombies game in 2009, and although it’s been years since the game was first launched, its novelty has yet to run out. The game involves a series of attacks led by brain-eating zombies. To protect your home and your brains, you will need to plant zombie-fighting plants on your lawn, backyard, and even on top of your roof. When compared to other games that involve busting zombies, Plants vs. Zombies has a cuter and gentler approach, making it the perfect game for both children and adults.
Although the Plants vs. Zombies franchise continues to become a huge success even until today, the guys at PopCap have decided to make a change. How, you may ask? On August of 2012, PopCap, with the help of EA Games made an official statement: a team at PopCap games is currently working on a sequel to the popular Plants vs. Zombies franchise. That’s right. This 2013, avid fans of the franchise will finally be able to get their hands on a new and improved version of the game. If you’re curious on what Plants vs. Zombies 2 has in store for you, continue reading this article. This article will include details about the release date of the game, and the several rumors about what the PopCap team might include in this game sequel.
When Is It Coming Out?
It was only last August 2012 when an official statement regarding the development of Plants vs. Zombies 2 was released. According PopCap, they cannot give out a definite date just yet but gamers and fans of the franchise can expect it to come out later this spring 2013. Since spring is just around the corner, Plants vs. Zombies fans don’t have to wait any longer for the arrival of their favorite game. With Plants vs. Zombies 2, players from all over the world will be hooked once again to this fun and super addicting game.
Plants Vs. Zombies Adventure
Regarding the name of the franchise’s sequel, it is still not yet certain if the game will be dubbed as Plants vs. Zombies 2 or Plants vs. Zombies Adventure. In the EA Games website, the new Plants vs. Zombies game is registered under the domain name “PlantsVsZombiesAdventure.com” and “pvzadventures.com”. These domain names were registered in the EA Games website on March 6, 2013. Traditionally, the registration of a domain name at the EA Games website is accompanied by an official statement regarding the specific date for the release of the game. In the case of the sequel for Plants vs. Zombies, no official date of release or teaser trailer appeared with the registration for the domain name. As of now, it is still unknown if the name of the sequel will indeed by Plants vs. Zombies Adventure or simply Plants vs. Zombies 2.
Where Can I Play Plants Vs. Zombies 2?
During the first release of Plants vs. Zombies, the game was made available to PC and laptop users. The Plants vs. Zombies game was available both in Microsoft Windows and the Mac OS. The year after the initial release of the game, PopCap Games decided to launch the game in different platforms. An HD version was created for those who would like to enjoy busting zombie heads on their iPad. Several months after the launching of the HD version for the iPad, Plants vs. Zombies was made available for the Nintendo DS and the Sony Playstation 3. On September 2010, PopCap Games once again put on the market the Plants vs. Zombies game for the Xbox Live Arcade. Unlike other versions of the first Plants vs. Zombies, the version for the Xbox Live Arcade included improved features as well as more gameplay modes.
Since PopCap Games has not yet released any statement regarding the gaming platform of the new Plants vs. Zombies 2, we cannot guarantee yet where fans can play the game. However since the first Plants vs. Zombies game was made available to almost every gaming platform around, it is safe to assume that the sequel of the game will also be playable in several gaming platforms. Currently there is no stable Plants vs. Zombies game for the Android and other smartphones and tablets.
Will There Be New Types of Plants and Zombies?
In the first Plants vs. Zombies game, players are given a variety of plants to choose from. Their choice widens as the game progresses since newer levels and more plants are unlocked. The same goes for the zombies. The more levels you get through, the more zombies you will see. From a normal brain-eating zombie, players will battle against football-playing zombies with deadly speed and an old zombie with an even deadlier temper.
The wide variety of plants and zombies is what made the game so enjoyable for many people. There are many rumors regarding Plants vs. Zombies 2 today, and one of those rumors is the addition of more plants and even more zombies. This will allow players to think of a better and stronger strategy to keep away the zombies from their lawn. There are also rumors about the interface or format of the sequel. While some gaming experts believe that PopCap Games will not deviate far from the original format of the game, there are several rumors and speculations about the addition of a multiplayer mode.
With so little information regarding Plants vs. Zombies 2, we still cannot guarantee to players that it will live up to the fame created by the first version. For now, we can only sit and wait until PopCap Games releases more information or releases the game itself.
