Plants vs Zombies 2 expands to the 'Dark Ages'

Plants vs Zombies 2 has rolled out its next time period: a Dark Ages expansion with emphasis on the "dark."

Plants vs Zombies 2 has rolled out its next time period. The Dark Ages expansion is available now, focusing on night missions since it's so dark. Eh? Yes?

This update adds a slew of new levels, along with more undead like the Knight and Jester Zombies. Some plants are returning, like the Sun-shroom, Puff-shroom, and Hypno-shroom, plus a new Sun Bean will make its debut in the Dark Ages. This update notably calls itself "Part 1," so another round of Dark Ages will presumably follow.

PopCap also used the opportunity to boast that PvZ2 has hit more than 200 million downloads so far, between the iOS App Store and Google Play for Android.

        I wouldn't know since it's not for PC. Maybe they'll "remove" the F2P stuff and release it for PC eventually.

      LOVED PvZ1 and when this came out I quickly grabbed it. Some odd months later they completely changed what 1st came out (with PvZ2). Today, it's somewhat the same, but different at the same time. TBH, the game really isn't good at all. You have to farm for coins if you want to advance. The games difficulty is a lot harder than it should be and tbh I don't have time to farm out coins or just don't care too... you pick. The "expansion" is a waste.

        It's not as good as the first one but you can play the entire game without actively farming coins, you just need the ones you get from the levels and the ones you get from events, and you only have to check once a day to see if there is one.
        I have nearly 100k coins and i have no idea what to do with them xD, and that is without farming. And well... with gems its the same story, i dont know what to do with them xD, 120 gems all garden slots unlocked.

        You have to use the resources intelligently at the beginning but thats all.

            I can't get into it all the same so it's not gonna be any fun for me.

            But I am having a blast playing Angry Birds EPIC!!! That's pretty good and FREE. Free is good right? I can say free here, no? LoL, some ppl get angry.
