Here’s something that I never saw coming. Plants versus Zombies was a game that had you in control of vegetable patch that was groovier than the one found on top of Bob Marley’s grave, as the undead came for you. With a sequel on the way, I’ve had my bank account primed and ready for it, for a while now. Except the game is going to be completely free.

Yep, Plants versus Zombies 2: It’s about time will indeed be going free to play, with microtransactions being available for in-game items.

According to Popcap though, you won’t need any of these items though, as you defend your homestead from the walking dead with all manner of plant life. In a press statement that we received, Senior producer Allen Murray said “We’re confident that players will see the love and attention we’ve put into this game”.

We’ve created wild new ways to experience the plants and zombies you know and love as well as packing the game with tons of completely new content, and we’re still hard at work coming up with even more cool stuff that will keep Plants vs. Zombies 2 fresh and evolving in the months and years following launch.

I’m pretty damn excited for the game. And I don’t even mind dropping some coin for items anyway, because I was expecting the game to ship with a retail price in the first place. I’m just hoping that I truly won’t need those extras, and they won’t cost more than the RRP of said game when it arrives on July 18.
