Bejeweled maker's Plants vs. Zombies Adventures sprouts on Facebook

Plants Vs. Zombies AdventuresYou've seen the domain registrations. Now, take a look at the first images of the next Plants vs. Zombies game, Plants vs. Zombies Adventures on Facebook. Developer PopCap Games broke the news through Inside Social Games during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. (PopCap also confirmed an early summer 2013 release for PvZ 2. )

Slated for a limited beta test soon with a wider public launch this spring, PvZ Adventures sees players defend a motor home from an onslaught of the undead across numerous "Road Trip" missions in different settings. These include a post-apocalyptic city, a chasm called "Dire Spires" and more, according to ISG.

Judging from early screen shots, PvZ Adventures looks like a more traditional tower defense game with an isometric perspective. To that end, ISG reports that the Facebook game will feature a town building element, like any successful Facebook game should. More important, however, is that PvZ Adventures will introduce new plants--like the melee-fighting Beet and the Aspearagus--and zombies, such as the Mad Hatter, an armored corpse wielding numerous hats.

According to ISG, the game has been in development for over a year--a long time for a social game even in 2013--and boasts interesting social hooks, like the ability to send zombie attacks to your friends' towns. For a deeper look at PvZ Adventures, read more on ISG.
