Plants Vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time Sees Early Release In Australia, New Zealand
Some people in Australia and New Zealand are having loads of fun killing zombies right now. With plants.
That's because PopCap Games has already released the long-awaited sequel Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time on both of those countries' App Stores. It still remains unreleased across the rest of the world.
Why, you ask? Apparently it's part of a "soft" launch. PopCap's Alley Murray explained that the game has been released in those markets to help the developer see how players are interacting with the title, as well as testing the servers for online traffic and seeing if there are any general glitches that need to be fixed before its wide release.
Murray continued that this is not an "official" launch of the game, and it is still coming sometime this summer, though a new release date hasn't been scheduled for other markets.
PopCap thanked players and fans for their patience and support, and assures that the sequel will be worth the wait. Even if it is a rather painful wait.
