Plants vs. Zombies Gets GOTY Edition on Steam; New Features for Free Alongside Mac Version

Valve Software has announced that it will be upgrading Steam PC copies of PopCap's Plants vs. Zombies to the new 'Game of the Year' Edition, which brings support for Valve's Steam Cloud, "introduces the Zombatar, enabling players to incorporate their own custom zombie creations directly into the game," and adds new content and 20 new achievements.


Additionally, the Mac version of Plants vs. Zombies GOTY Edition is now available through Steam, supporting Steam Play, Steam Cloud, Steam achievements, and the aforementioned Zombatar. As with all Steam Play titles, ownership on one platform grants ownership on the other. Steam Cloud will sync save games and data across all computers, PC or Mac.

"Delivering Plants vs. Zombies via Steam helped us reach a tremendous audience for the game," said Ron Powers, VP of Product Management at PopCap. "Adding Steam Cloud functionality to the game allows us to increase the value of the title to existing and new customers. In addition, with the title support Steam Play for cross platform play, it seemed the timing was perfect for adding Steam Cloud support."

A new copy of Plants vs. Zombies GOTY Edition will run you a cool $9.99--$10 cheaper than PopCap's own store.
