Plants vs. Zombies XBLA priced and dated
$15 Xbox Live Arcade version hitting "early September" with two new multiplayer modes, 12 achievements, and 21 minigames unique to the console version; boxed edition arriving at retail with Peggle and Zuma this fall for $19.99.
Call of Duty: World at War has a zombie mode, as does upcoming content for Red Dead Redemption. However, the undead in those titles don't munch the life out of plants as they do in PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies. The tower defense game that debuted on the PC and Mac last year will make its way to the XBLA in September the publisher said today.
The game's full achievement list leaked this weekend, but today, the game's publisher provided official, substantiated details on the game, including the aforesaid release window, as well as its price and gameplay details.
Plants vs. Zombies for XBLA will cost gamers 1,200 MS points, or $15, and will feature two new multiplayer modes, 12 achievements, and 21 minigames unique to the console version. The two new multiplayer modes are co-op and Versus mode, which were outed this weekend.
Additionally, the title will feature a new way for friends to track and share progress with each other over Xbox Live. The new social connectivity measures come in the form of customizable houses, which players can visit.
PopCap also today sent word it plans to release the game, in two forms, at retail later this fall. Plants vs. Zombies, with bundled copies of Peggle and Zuma, will arrive on a disc at retail, alongside a new boxed "Game of the Year" edition of the PC/Mac original. Both will arrive "this fall," bearing a $19.99 price tag.
