Plants vs Zombies 2: It’s About Time! is coming to iOS devices worldwide on July 18th, publisher EA has confirmed today. Perhaps the more interesting news from this story however is that the game will launch as a free to play title, with EA claiming that it is possible to ” face every zombie and access every level in every world at no cost”, although you can purchase upgrades and other in game items for your hard earned cash.
“It’s about time! We’re confident that players will see the love and attention we’ve put into this game. 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.” – Allen Murray, Senior Producer for Plants vs. Zombies 2.
Android and Windows Phone owners will be disappointed to hear that the game will release exclusively on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch at launch, however no further details were given on the possibility of a port to the Google or Microsoft mobile operating systems. EA also treated us to a launch trailer that can be found below.
