Plants vs. Zombies 2 not so global Android release: Update


We have seen a few big name apps becoming available this year that have got some iOS favouritism, which leads to a lot of anger among fans of the Android platform. While we still wait for the release of the elusive Android iFruit app we have the great news that the Plants vs. Zombies 2 game enjoys a global Android release.

Just over a week ago we told you that the game had been released for some Google Play users in certain regions, but now the Plants vs. Zombies 2 release has been expanded globally for users to download and finally enjoy.

The apps listing states that the zombies are returning and “It’s about time”, which is something many Android users will certainly agree with. The sequel to the original hit game promises more zombies while you try and build an army of powerful new plants that can be boosted with Plant Food to improve your defences.

You can gain Finger Powers so you can then flick, pinch, and zap those pesky zombies, and keys can be collected to play valuable side missions with users able to connect to Game Services to unlock achievements while competing against friends via the leader boards.

The free game requires that devices are running at least Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM minimum hardware requirement. To find out or to download head over to Google Play.

Update: At the time of the original article the app was showing that it was available for my devices using the link on this page, but now the app is still showing via the link but it is saying it’s incompatible with my devices that include the Nexus 7 and Galaxy S3.

    Can no one get their facts straight before posting these things? What dimension do these writers live in? Are they in a dimension where bbm for android is stable and released, people are happily enjoying plants vs zombies 2? Or are they simply in another country like India assuming that the rest of the world can download it. I’ll tell you somethin else, you cant even access it through a vpn, something sneaky is goin on here and ea can get to f[_]ck

    And surprisingly… no way to report this article or have it removed.. what a joke. At least other misleading articles have updated previously that there may have been a glitch that caused it to appear. Plants vs zombies 2: It’ll never be time

    If you want to complain, send an email to the website AND their advertisers. State state that there bad journalist has driven you away from the site. Enough people do that, the article will get updated and the journalist will get smacked.

    For all the angry people, i too am pyst about this. But, in defense of this site, popcap games made this aannouncement on twitter themselves. I have no affiliations here with these folks. If they are reporting on what, i myself, read on twitter then the blame falls squarely on popcap and ea. Though, honestly, the author should have checked this him/her self. Unless for whatever reason popcap did release and then pulled?

      I get what you’re saying, but when journalism becomes broadened to include: reporting stuff said on Twitter (more importantly, reporting without confirming), well, we can’t rely on journalism anymore.

    The news that the Plants vs. Zombies 2 release has been expanded globally is a hoax.

    “Actually, PvZ 2 for Android has only launched in a handful of countries — it’s not in fact available in the UK at this time, as just one example. (And yes, the articles claiming it’s in the UK Google Play store are incorrect.) It’s coming very, very soon to the rest of the world — thanks for your patience, and trust me when I say it won’t be long now ~!

    Those requirements are a lie. My Galaxy Nexus, and Pantech Marauder, and Nook HD+, and Samsung Stratosphere II, are all labelled incompatible, but they all have 1 GB of ram, well over 1 Ghz dual core processors, and run Android 4.0 or higher. I don’t get why I can’t download and install the game already.
