PopCap has announced that Plants VS. Zombies 2: It’s About Time will hit iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch this July 18th. The game will be free-to-play, and additional upgrades and in-game items for purchase.
According the PopCap, the game “continues the epic struggle of plants defending your brainz against zombies from your backyard through the vast reaches of time, both past and future.” The game offers “dozens” of new levels and multiple themed worlds, plus new plants and new zombies along with “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.”
Some of the worlds confirmed are Ancient Egypt, Pirate Seas and Wild West. It’s also confirmed that Crazy Dave will return to sell upgrades and tools to help players fighting the horde.
“We’re confident that players will see the love and attention we’ve put into this game,” senior producer Allen Murray. “We’ve created wild new ways to experience the plants and zombies you know and love as well as packing the game with tons of completely new content, and we’re still hard at work coming up with even more cool stuff that will keep Plants vs. Zombies 2 fresh and evolving in the months and years following launch.”
