PopCap, a division of Electronic Arts Inc, has rolled out the first of many planned sequels to Plants vs. Zombies as a closed beta on Facebook. Plants vs. Zombies Adventures is a social media game where players can interact online while thwarting the zombie invasion. PopCap will officially roll out PvZ Adventures to the general public this spring, before releasing Zombie vs. Plants 2 this summer.
Curt Bererton, head of PopCap’s San Francisco studio, promises Plants vs. Zombies Adventures will feature plenty of new plants and zombies, along with old favorites.
“The [game] features all-new forms of zombie combat that will open PvZ to a whole new world, explained Bereton. "We like to think we’re creating a brand new twist on the classic Plants vs. Zombies that is the most social, shareable and expansive Plants vs. Zombies experience ever.”
PopCap didn't reveal much about Plants vs. Zombies 2, but it's expected to feature all new levels and characters just like the Facebook game. It should also be free since it's now officially being released by EA. Just keep your fingers crossed they don't kill it with in-app purchases like they did with Real Racing 3.
