Plants vs Zombies 2 available in Australia and New Zealand

Wednesday, 10th July 2013 00:02 GMT By Brenna Hillier

In a startling reversal of our usual fortunes, antipodean gamers have access to Plants vs Zombies 2 well ahead of the rest of the world, which will have to wait through the announced delay.

Popcap has released the free-to-play tower defence effort as a “soft launch”, testing its servers and systems with a smaller population ahead of the game’s official full launch in the next few months.

If you’re down under, you can grab it on the App Store.

Because it’s a test version, the game is expect to change in the next few weeks, with the cost of various items being adjusted and balanced. Additionally, Popcap intends to keep releasing new plants every few months.

Plants vs Zombies 2 is free to play, but Popcap told Polygon premium features available via in-game microtransactions will also be unlockable via gameplay; additionally, anything purchased will be carried over to all profiles if you start a new game. It boasts various online-only features like cloud saves, but supports offline play.

Now word yet on platforms other than iOS.

Thanks, Shack News.

    You can always just make an australian itunes account. The app has been released, i had to look under pop caps apps to find it. It is really fun so far.

    Also all purchases transfer to any profile except coins. The six premium plants are cool. The nice thing is the premium upgrades are available just by playing through the game as well.

    The new version is free to play, but some premium items should be purchased via IAP. It will also support multiple accounts on one single device and these accounts are allowed to share the items you purchase.
