Plants vs Zombies took the world by storm, with its unique and captivating gameplay and news of a second version was already in the pipline. Popcap finally shed light to that rumor and finally released Plants vs Zombies 2 in Australia and New Zealand. The game is still only available in these countries and the rest of the world will have to wait a little longer it seems.
Part 1 was a paid app, but this version is supposed to be free, with those annoying in-app purchases. These days it seems to be the trend, but if the freemium version is anything like EA’s Real Racing, then we are all in for a treat. The soft launch according to Popcap senior producer Allen Murray was that “We didn’t want to launch in a large region, but we wanted to work in a region that had similar economic behavior.” This was mostly done to check their servers before launching the game world wide.
Personally I loved to beat the living hell out of those zombie with the pea shooter! So lets hope Plants vs Zombies 2 lives up to its predecessors very high standards. We will shed more light on the matter as soon as the game is available on the Play Store worldwide.
