, | Games


PopCap has announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time will be launching on the iOS App Store on July 18th. The long-awaited sequel will be entirely free-to-play. PopCap says the “vast majority” of content will be available for no charge but players will be able to purchase upgrades and other in-game items.

Designed from the ground up as a live service, the ever-expanding universe of Plants vs. Zombies 2 continues the epic struggle of plants defending your brainz against zombies from your backyard through the vast reaches of time, both past and future. New worlds with new levels, plants, zombies and new ways to play will be released on an ongoing basis. Leveraging the touch interface of Apple’s popular mobile devices, Plants vs. Zombies 2 includes all-new touch-screen power-ups that enable players to “break the fourth wall” and interact with zombies directly, as well as via plant defenses.

The game is “exclusively” for iOS at launch according to PopCap. There is no word on whether or not there will be PC or Android versions of the game coming later.
