Plants vs. Zombies 2 downloaded nearly 25 million times, PopCap Teases ‘Far Future’ update


Electronics Arts’ PopCap has announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2, the sequel to the widely popular gaming title Plants vs. Zombies, has already been downloaded nearly 25 million times.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 was released in the App Store globally on August 15, after the initial launch in New Zealand and Australian App Store in July.

The second installment of the game has exceeded the total sales of the original 2010 Plants vs Zombies game that was launched in 2010, suggesting that free-to-play model with in-app purchases has paid off.

PopCap has also released the following infographic which reveals that Plants vs. Zombies 2 players have racked up 81 million hours of gameplay, generating 39 billion in-game suns and cultivating 10 billion plants against 5.4 billion waves of zombies.


Last week, EA announced that the game will get a major content update in the coming months called Far Future. It hasn’t announced any release date yet, but has released a teaser video (via TouchArcade) to give us some hints at what to expect.

PopCap blasted us a mysterious pseudo-trailer for what we’re thinking might be the first clue for the next Plants vs. Zombies 2 [Free] update. It’s little more than a zombie standing in a field, the camera pans out… And it’s a huge crop circle corn maze sort of thing.

Maybe the next world that Crazy Dave’s time machine teleports us to is going to have something to do with aliens?

In case you haven’t played the game yet, download it for free from the App Store using this direct iTunes link.
