Following the postponement of PopCap’s highly looked forward title Plants vs Zombies 2: It’s About Time, the studio has recently published a new developer diary video for the game.
Previously it was told that the game in discussion was slated to release on 18th of July, before PopCap announced the unexpected eleventh hour delay for the game, which is now to be released later in the summer.
While we never got to know the full grounds on which the delay was announced, senior producer of the game, Allen Murray ensured that this additional time was significantly important to make the game a better experience as it was needed for some tests.
Our take on this? Guessing from the video, we think this is what Murray meant when he said ‘testing’:
As it is pretty evident from the video that Plants vs. Zombies 2: It’s About Time will integrate a world map which is being featured for the first time in the franchise. Courtesy of introduction of world map, players will now be able to go through three different epochs, namely, ancient Egypt, the age of piracy, and the wild west.
Note: All these three eras are bring added at launch. There is a possibility that more could be added later after the release of the game.
In addition to world map, the game also features a Plant Food mechanic that would allow your plants to use power-ups for a limited time. According to the video, this has allowed the developers to bring back some of the iconic plants from the original game with a fresh look and feel.
Plants vs Zombies 2: It’s About Time is scheduled to release on iOS later this summer.
