As expected, Plants vs Zombies 2, PopCap’s sequel to the wildly popular iOS gaming title, is finally available in the U.S. App Store for free.
As we’ve mentioned earlier, the game is free-to-play with in-app purchases. It was originally supposed to be released in July, but was delayed to extensively test the backend that’ll power multi-device progress syncing and to tweak the game’s monetization model. As a part of this testing phase, PopCap had soft launched PvZ 2 in New Zealand and Australian App Stores.
But the wait is finally over, and you can now download it from the U.S. App Store, and should be available in the App Store in other countries as well (let us know if it is not yet available in your country).
Here are some of the game features:
NEW PLANTS! NEW ZOMBIES!
Meet Bonk Choy, Bloomerang and Lighting Reed: Just a few of the powerful new plants that will defend your lawn through time. Go toe-to-missing-toe with dozens of new zombies including Ra Zombie in Ancient Egypt, Swashbuckler Zombie on the Pirate Seas, or Chicken Wrangler Zombie in the Wild West. In every new world, clever new zombies and brain-teasing challenges will test your zombie-zapping skills.
AMAZING NEW WAYS TO PROTECT YOUR BRAIN
New Plant Food and power-ups will take your game to new dimensions. Plant Food will supercharge your plants when you need it most. Use your fingers to pinch, flick and zap zombies off your lawn.
LOOK OUT! ZOMBIE CHICKENS!
NEW LEVELS OF EXCITEMENT
Battle the fun-dead on land, on sea and… on the rails? Unlock ultra-challenging (and ultra-fun) endless levels — Pyramid of Doom, Pirate’s Booty and the Big Bad Butte.
THE FUN NEVER DIES
Gather keys to unlock brain teasers and new plants. Collect coins to purchase potent power-ups. Earn stars to take you to new worlds. Survive long enough and you’ll be rewarded with piles of prizes and achievements. And that’s just the beginning! The future holds many mysteries. Also, zombies. Lots and lots of zombies.
