Plants vs. Zombies 2 arrives for Android via Google Play

While iOS gamers have had their Plants vs. Zombies 2 fix for a little while now, Android users have been left hanging. Last month, sources surfaced saying that the wait would end some time this month, and though the powers that be hadn't confirmed the rumor, the reality has come to fruition with the game's launch in the Google Play Store, where it is free to download.

Originally, the game had been set to launch back in July, but the goal was ultimately postponed due to some additional testing the developer had to do on back end server capacity, cloud-saving systems, and the monetization system. Because of this, the roll out was limited to a few regions, with gamers in the US getting it weeks later.

Though initially only made available for iOS users, the numbers shot to 25 million downloads by September 2, reaching 4.5 out of 5 stars and a total number of hours played hitting 81,000,000. While the numbers have increased since then, the availability to Android gamers will no doubt have a substantial impact on its download numbers and such.

The game brings all the goodies you'd expect, and though the extent to which we're uncertain, the game shows up in Play Games. There are in-game purchases, as well as the acquisition of items with points, giving gamers benefits without having to shell out cash to get past common freemium limitations. Check out the video above, then head over to the Play Store to grab the download.
