Plants vs. Zombies brings good news, bad news

Today brings both good news and bad news for PopCap fans. Good news? Plants vs. Zombies Adventures has entered beta testing on Facebook. Bad news? Plants vs. Zombies 2 has been delayed to "early summer" in the United States.

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

The true sequel to the original casual games smash, Plants vs. Zombies 2 was originally slated to arrive in the northern hemisphere's spring - that is, sometime in the next couple of months. Today's news suggests it's been pushed back to around the middle of the year.

But that's okay! We can play Plants vs. Zombies Adventures in the meantime!

Adventures is in development at PopCap's San Francisco office, and studio head Curt Bererton is q bit pleased:

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures is a highly accessible, zombie-zapping adaptation of the original game designed specifically for Facebook. The game not only offers up exclusive new plants and zombies along with old favorites, it features all-new forms of zombie combat that will open PvZ to a whole new world. We like to think we’re creating a brand new twist on the classic Plants vs. Zombies that is the most social, shareable and expansive Plants vs. Zombies experience ever.

Of course, there's a catch. Adventures has only been rolled out to a "limited audience" right now, kept pretty tightly under wraps. The game's now in a strictly closed beta test, but is expected to be made more available within a month or so. Stay tuned.
