If Plants Vs Zombies has Xbox Live Achievements, surely there must be a video game to go along with it, right? Yes, of course. PopCap's gardening of the dead smash hit will become an Xbox Live Arcade game in September.
The maker of Peggle and Bejeweled made it official today, revealing an XBLA version of the real-time strategy game that has already hit the PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad. Plants Vs Zombies for Xbox Live Arcade should arrive in the spring, bringing with it seven game modes, two all-new multiplayer modes (co-op and versus), 12 unique achievements and 21 mini-games.
PopCap also promises:
- A goofy new way to track and share progress online, where players create their own custom house and cruise down the street to see their friends' cribs!
- The highest resolution of any Plants vs Zombies adaptation to date at 1920 x 1080
The XBLA version will cost 1200 Microsoft Points or $US15 in real world bucks.
Later this year, PopCap will also a retail version of Plants vs Zombies, including Zuma and Peggle for the Xbox 360, along with a new "Game of The Year" edition of the PC/Mac original, a limited number of which will include a zombie figurine.
