Plants vs. Zombies 2 celebrates 'Valenbrainz' today as it marches towards Garden Warfare 2

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is celebrating Valenbrainz with a special 13-day event starting today, but that's not all the free-to-play mobile game will have for its user base. With Garden Warfare 2 looming, there's another update incoming, as well.


In PopCap's world, plants and zombies have been mortal enemies for years. But plants and zombies need love, too. And what better way to express love than through all-out warfare? Alright, maybe that doesn't sound quite right, but just roll with it for the upcoming Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time event, called Valenbrainz.

Valenbrainz will introduce new units on both sides. Players will get a chance to defend their botanical army with a new Premium Plant called the Blooming Heart. This new plant catapults heart-shaped projectiles, with damage increasing for every successful hit. The zombies will also have six new Valentine-themed units to go along with 11 new levels and collectible costumes.

Valenbrainz is set to last for 13 days and kicks off today. Once it ends, though, PvZ2 isn't taking a break. In fact, those that have followed the plant and zombie conflict may remember that Garden Warfare 2 is supposed to be hitting PC and consoles on February 23. To celebrate that, PvZ2 will get the Modern Day Part 2 update, which will see the plants chasing after Dr. Zomboss, who is siccing his entire army of zombies from across the ages on them in 16 new levels. And just like Valenbrainz, players will find new Premium Plants and zombie units.

For more on Valenbrainz, check out the video below. Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time is available now and free-to-play on the App Store and Google Play.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
