It’s about #%$% time is right! Plants Vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time has finally made its way to Android in the United States! The lawn defense game is finally available in the American Google Play store. Get it while it’s hot!
The game was released for the iPhone and iPad on August 15th, and later released for Android in other territories. But the sequel to the smash hit Plants Vs. Zombies was postponed for American Android users until now. Plants vs Zombies 2 continues the casual tower defense (well, yard defense) gameplay of the first but changes the payment structure. Instead of purchasing the game, it’s free. But it follows a free to play model using micro transactions to make a profit.
When it released for iOS, Plants Vs. Zombies 2 not only set records for EA, but for the App Store as well. In its first 5 days, the title grabbed the number 1 top game position in 137 countries, and received a 4.5 rating (out of 5). Plants vs. Zombies 2 racked up over 25 million hours played in that first 5 days as well.
The sequel is a free to download, and sports a free-to-play model, which differs from the original title’s upfront fee. It’s already getting downloaded right and left by Android users who have been waiting far too long for a PvZ fix. So far, it’s sporting a 4.5 rating in the Google Play store.
