PopCap Games and EA have revealed that Plants vs. Zombies 3 is in development, with a playable pre-alpha available right now in the Google Play Store, so that PopCap can gather feedback from fans on the title.
We're warned of bugs in this early version, and a limited number of downloads will be available in phases, so check another day if you miss out. Combat features are the main focus of feedback here, and all content is of course subject to change in the final product.
In the FAQ PopCap is asked why they're making this sequel, to which they say:
"Because we love Plants vs. Zombies! At PopCap, we've been working on PvZ for years and want to bring our beloved plants and zombies to current players and the next generation of players everywhere. We're hard at work testing out a lot of fun things that we want your feedback on, and hope you will come on this journey with us!"
PopCap adds that they can't reveal too many details about Plants vs. Zombies 3 right now, but at least there's something to play for fans.
Are you pleased that number three is under construction?
