Plants vs. Zombies 2, the followup to popular tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies, is now available after what seems like too long a wait. Gameplay remains familiar, pitting a fleet of titular plants against hoards of titular zombies as you build the ultimate line of defense.
The game features a host of new plants and new zombies, as well as a central time travel theme to help shuffle the story mode along. The good news is there will be no steep learning curve for fans of the series. Jump right in and start sending the living dead back to the grave.
PopCap is offering the game as a free download with some pretty standard “freemium” features, but players should be able to unlock the full experience without ever dropping a single dime. Currently available in the US, a worldwide rollout will follow. The plan is to then bring the game to just about every mobile and console platform out there. Time to get addicted all over again.
