Plants vs. Zombies 2 was previously scheduled for release on July 18. And later its developer PopCap posted a tweet, saying that its official release date might be postponed to some time late this summer. Surprisingly, the date comes much earlier rather than later. If you have an NZ or AU account, you can get it now.

PvZ’s Senior Producer Allen Murray told IGN that the soft-launch is intended to ensure the game’s back-end systems are up-to-snuff and ready for a crush of worldwide players.

A release date for the US and other areas is not yet confirmed, but will probably come in “2-3 weeks”. The game will also land on Windows, Mac and other platforms later this year.

The new version is free to play, but some premium items should be purchased via IAP. It will also support multiple accounts on one single device and these accounts are allowed to share the items you purchase.
