Plants vs. Zombies 2 is out now in New Zealand and Australia, so of course we grabbed it and gave it a shot. Below, we’ve got some footage of the game that shows off its Ancient Egypt world, as well as a few new plants and enemy types.
We had a blast playing and it and tooling around with the new mechanics and systems. Our favorite new thing is the special abilities because they allow you to directly interact with the zombies on-screen. With a tap, you can electrocute them, toss them away, or even pinch off their heads. From a strategy standpoint, this adds a cool new layer to the traditional play.
It’s hard to tell when PVZ2 will officially launch, but we’re guessing it’s soon. Stay tuned.
