Popcap's upcoming casual tower-defense game Plants vs Zombies 2: It's About Time now has a release date. The company has announced that the game will be coming out in July. As of now, the company hasn't announced which platforms the game will be available for, but it's a safe bet to assume that it will at least come out on the PC and Mac. Like the first game, it might even come out on mobile devices.
The game is set to include a bevy of new features, settings and situations designed to delight the franchise’s fans around the world.
The original Plants vs. Zombies game was ported to Android and iOS last year. With EA’s plans of releasing games for Windows Phone 8, the sequel to the zombie-themed tower defense game may see a release to Windows Phone 8 eventually.
It's about time!
Plants vs Zombies 2: It's About Time was originally announced back in August 2012 with a rather hilarious press release with quotes from a zombie and a plant.
“Spring is crullest curlie ungood time, and plantz grow dull roots,” noted an unidentified spokesperson, who we guess is a zombie. “So, we are meating you for brainz at yore house. No worry to skedule schedlue plan… we're freee anytime. We'll find you.”
“There was a time we relished a bracing, hearty blend of zombies, in the morning,” said Sonny F. Lower, a representative of the Flora Forever Foundation. “But first, a brisk shower and some strategic pruning are required. Tomorrow is near!”
