Back in July, PopCap and EA launched Plants vs. Zombies 2 on iOS devices. It soon launched on Android devices down under, but the rest of the world's Android devices had to wait. Now that wait is over.
PopCap Games announced today that Plants vs. Zombies 2 is now available globally via Google Play. There's no explanation behind the Android version being delayed well past any timed exclusivity period, but it may have something to do with PopCap integrating Google Play Game Services into the title. In fact, it's the first PopCap title to do so.
“With the arrival of Plants vs. Zombies 2 on Android, we’re effectively reaching a huge new audience of mobile players who have been eagerly awaiting the game,” said Tony Leamer, Franchise Business Director for Plants vs. Zombies. “We’re particularly pleased that the Android iteration of the game has all the great features and functionality found in other mobile editions.”
Unlike the first Plants vs. Zombies title, the sequel is entirely free-to-play with its main source of revenue coming from in-app transactions. PopCap notes that the entire game can be accessed for free, and that the in-app transactions are only there for those who want to augment or enhance their game in some way.
As was the case with the iOS release, Plants vs. Zombies 2 on Android will include three worlds at launch which encompasses more than 60 levels. PopCap promises that there will be more worlds and more levels coming soon as well.
