As Plants vs. Zombies Adventures launches today on Facebook, developer PopCap has a little bit of bad news for fans of the franchise. Plants vs. Zombies 2 will be ever-so-slightly delayed into the "early summer." The game was originally planned for a "late spring" launch when the studio announced the game back in August.
It's been about three years since the original Plants vs. Zombies game was released, and it won the hearts of casual strategy gamers everywhere. After being ported to almost every single platform, PopCap is ready to release the sequel this summer. No concrete release date has been announced, but "early summer" could mean a late May or June release.
We're still a couple of months away from that time frame, but gamers are no doubt already marking their calendars. However, details about the sequel are rather scarce, with PopCap only mentioning that the new game would launch with "a bevy of new features, settings and situations," which obviously isn't anything to be surprised about.
In the meantime, you can play around with Plants vs. Zombies Adventures on Facebook, which should hold you up until the sequel is released in a few months. The Facebook game takes on a different approach than the original title. This time, the zombies walk along a path, while you must set up plant defenses all along the path to prevent the zombies from passing by and reaching the end.
