Plants vs. Zombies 2 now widely available for Android

PopCap Games released the Android version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 through the Google Play store today, bringing the free-to-play, fast-paced strategy game to a much wider audience.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 saw a "soft launch" on Android in a handful of countries, debuting first in China, then coming to Google Play in Australia and New Zealand. The game was released widely on iOS in August and has since racked up more than 25 million downloads, according to publisher Electronic Arts.

The Android version of PvZ 2 requires a device running Android OS version 2.3 (Gingerbread) or newer, at least 1 GB of RAM and an ARMv7 1.0 GHz or better.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is the time-traveling, free-to-play follow-up to PopCap's wildly successful tower defense game. Players can opt to purchase coins that can then be spent on power ups, but the game can be completed without utilizing in-app purchases. EA is offering a deal on one of those power-ups, knocking more than 65 percent off the cost of a "mighty Jalapeño."
