Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, which you already know about, was shown first thing when EA started off its conference.

A video, screens and some key facts are available below.

PopCap has released two shots of some sort of cross-over project for Plants vs. Zombies. Both shots were posted on Facebook: “Grass Effect” and “Dead Face”, teasing Mass Effect and Dead Space, respectively. The developer states to expect to hear more on this in June during E3. EA’s press event is on June 10 so we’re likely find out more then. Shots are below.

Brenna is never, ever going to give PopCap any money for Solitaire Blitz, and has no idea if this makes her part of the problem, or the solution.

In a press release regarding the newly-revealed social effort Plants vs Zombies Adventures, PopCap also mentioned that the sequel to the best-selling tower defence title has been delayed. Originally expected sometime in northern spring, Plants vs Zombies 2 is now lasted for an “early summer” release. We still know almost nothing about the much-anticipated title, but you can probably expect it on a range of platforms thanks to EA’s porting grunt.

PopCap has quietly unveiled Plants vs Zombies Adventures, a social adaptation of its much-loved tower defence effort now in beta on Facebook. Only a few players are onboard, with wider availability expected during northern spring. The “highly accessible” social spin-off promises exclusive new plants and zombie and all-new forms of combat, sending players on road trips to counter the undead menace in new locations, and was outed by domain registrations earlier this month.

PopCap’s latest release is not, alas, an expansion to Plants vs Zombies, but instead a new take on Solitaire using the publisher’s now-famous Blitz formula. Having already attracted a large following on Facebook and launched via the App Store today, Solitaire Blitz is free, and available on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It gives players 60 seconds to clear decks and also go on an “underwater adventure”. Somehow.

EA has made a number of domain registrations for something called Plants vs Zombies Adventure, as dug up by industry gumshoe Superannuation. The registrations were all made in early March. There’s no indication whatsoever what it might be, but given PopCap’s recent liking for Facebook spin-offs of its properties, like Bejeweled Blitz, I’m putting $5 on “social game” – however it may be worth dusting off this old rumour about a multiplayer shooter set in the PvZ universe.
