PopCap Games, a division of Electronic Arts, confirmed that two new editions of its Plants vs Zombies game will be rolled out to the public.

First there's a social version penciled in for a spring release and currently available as a limited Beta: Plants vs. Zombies Adventures. This version will bring the brain munching zombies and the plants to popular social networking site Facebook. The aim in this edition is to use the plants to defend a motor home from the undead and to build a town. There will be different locations, multiple difficulty levels, new zombies, new plants, a new 3D isometric format, and several other cool new features.

There are some key differences compared to the traditional Plants vs Zombies game:
  • Zombie attacks – the zombies will not come at you in a straight line, they will go down multiple winding paths. Just like in a tower defense game, you will place plants along the path to destroy all incoming zombies.
  • Plants –by clicking on a plant you can give it a temporary range and power boost in exchange for a small amount of sunshine.
  • Build a town – you will be encouraged to explore adjacent property tiles and construct buildings on said tiles. These buildings will spawn resources and will help you acquire plants.
  • Friends – you will be able to send gifts to other players, you will get to explore their towns, and you will get to send zombie attacks against their buildings.

“Plants vs. Zombies Adventures is a highly accessible, zombie-zapping adaptation of the original game designed specifically for Facebook,” said Curt Bererton, head of PopCap’s San Francisco studio. “The game not only offers up exclusive new plants and zombies along with old favorites, it features all-new forms of zombie combat that will open PvZ to a whole new world. We like to think we’re creating a brand new twist on the classic Plants vs. Zombies that is the most social, shareable and expansive Plants vs. Zombies experience ever.”

Popcap Games also announced that there will be a sequel to its popular game: Plants vs Zombies 2. All we know about this game at the time is that it is scheduled for a summer release. Details on what new features the game will have to offer have not been released.
