In this article, you will read all about the Plants vs. Zombies 2 release date, its gaming platform, the new features available, where you can get it, and other mysterious rumors surrounding the development of this game sequel. If you’re one of the thousands who are excited for the release of this fun and addicting game, read our article to know more about Plants vs. Zombies 2.
The Plants Vs. Zombies 2 Release Date
After all the hype that was caused by Plants vs. Zombies, EA Games along with PopCap made an official announcement that was the delight of many fans: a sequel to the original Plants vs. Zombies franchise is currently being worked on by a team at PopCap Games. The creation of a sequel didn’t shock a lot of people, especially after all the success that was gained by the first version and the continuing mainstream fascination over the zombie apocalypse. The two companies officially announced the on-going development of Plants vs. Zombies 2 in 2012 but for now, EA and PopCap Games has announced that the Plants vs. Zombies 2 release date won’t be until Spring of 2013.
The New Features Included in the Plants vs. Zombies Sequel
Although PopCap, along with EA Games, has already made an official announcement regarding the development of the Plants vs. Zombies 2, as well as its release date, very little is said about the new features that players will be able to find in the game’s sequel. Rumor has it that the new version of Plants vs. Zombies will include meaner zombies and cuter yet more aggressive plants. When it comes to the overall layout of the game, there are several gaming experts who believe that PopCap will not change a lot from the original interface of the game. Since PopCap Games is very hush-hush when it comes to Plants vs. Zombies 2 and its cool new features, not much can be said or be predicted about how this game sequel will look like. Most fans of the Plants vs. Zombies franchise are hoping for more exciting mini-games that can keep everyone addicted. For now, we can only hope that PopCap is brewing a game that will be able to live up to the hype created by its predecessor.
The original Plants vs. Zombies game was first made available to Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows for PC and laptop users. In 2010, an HD version of Plants vs. Zombies was made available for iPad users. At the very same year, PopCap Games also released a special version for the Xbox Live Arcade. Unlike the Plants vs. Zombies for other gaming platforms, the Plants vs. Zombies for the Xbox Live Arcade had better features and more gameplay modes to choose from. Plants vs. Zombies can also be played using the Nintendo DS, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and the Blackberry Playbook.
As for the new Plants vs. Zombies 2, PopCap Games has not released a statement regarding the chosen gaming platform for this sequel. However given the flexibility of the previous version of Plants vs. Zombies, it is very likely that the sequel of this game will be available for all the gaming platforms mentioned above, and perhaps it will even be made available for different tablets and smartphones.
When PopCap Games announced that they would be releasing a second version of the epic Plants vs. Zombies game, everyone hoped to hear more information regarding this statement. Unfortunately, aside from the Plants vs. Zombies 2 release date, and a couple of rumors here and there, there is not much known about this new game that might sweep people into a frenzy once more. PopCap Games is definitely very tight-lipped about this game’s progress and might not give out any hints at all until the trailer or the game itself is placed in the market.
Even the exact release date of Plants vs. Zombies 2 is not yet revealed. Regarding the date of its launch, PopCap and EA Games has mentioned that Plants vs. Zombies will most probably be made available to the public by late spring of 2013. According to PopCap, this game sequel will most definitely “include a series of new features, settings, and situations”.
One component that many believe will be added to the game is a multiplayer feature. According to Supperannuation, a popular game review writer, the PopCap team responsible for designing Plants vs. Zombies 2 was looking for new additions to their team, specifically an expert in multiplayer designing and 3D animation.
Although the Plants vs. Zombies 2 release date has been announced, PopCap Games has yet to approve the development created by the team. Meaning should the heads of PopCap Games decide to reject the ideas of the Plants vs. Zombies 2 team, this game might not be released for the public at all.
