PopCap Games announced today that it will release Plants vs. Zombies in September 2010 on Xbox Live for $15.00. The latest version of the tower defense game will have two all-new multiplayer modes, 12 achievements and 21 mini-games.
“With a ton of new features and content exclusive to the XBLA version, we’ve pulled out all the stops to both expand and optimize this adaptation for a hard core gaming audience,” said Ed Allard, head of worldwide studios at PopCap. “The two new multiplayer modes allow gamers to work cooperatively to defeat hordes of invading zombies, or go head-to-head in a true ‘plants vs. zombies’ challenge. We’re also featuring a customized ‘house’ for tracking and sharing progress as well as a total of 21 mini-games and 12 achievements, all designed to enthrall Plants vs. Zombies players once again.”
PopCap plans to release a retail boxed copy of Plants vs. Zombies, which will include Zuma and Peggle, for the Xbox 360 for $19.99.
