PopCap Games has announced that their hit, Plants vs Zombies, has been adapted for China's leading social networking site, Renren. To translate for the majority of us Westerners, Renren is China's version of Facebook. This will mark the first time a Western game developer has received an exclusive launch on Renren.
As-is typical of PopCap's style, the PvZ game will not be a direct port. For those keeping track, each time the game is released on another platform, it offers features and gameplay elements that differ from the other versions. This time, players can invite their friends to visit their own personal towns, custom-built to reflect the individual's style and strategy! There will also be a 2-minute zombie attack called "Rampage Mode". There will be a new Rampage challenge each week.
Personally, I'm not one for Facebook games. Granted, I don't have the time. But, a Plants vs Zombies game? I am certain I would keep me glued to Facebook longer than I need to be.
