Plants vs Zombies 3 Pre-Alpha is Out to Play

PopCap/EA’s has announced Plants vs Zombies 3, their new title in the garden defense game. The game is currently pre-alpha. Pre-alpha is very early launch of the game. Expect many glitches and errors before criticizing the game harshly. PopCap wants players to try out the game and provide feedback on potential improvements for the title.  The pre-alpha is free to play exclusively on Google Play store right now.

The game has changed from landscape to portrait mode since Plants vs Zombies 2. Although the pre-alpha is currently out, you may not be able to play. If you can’t get access, PopCap says to try again another day as it will be opening up the pre-alpha in phases according to Gamespot. The pre-alpha is only available to the United States. EA has not announced a specific launch date for Plants vs Zombies 3. If the game is only in pre-alpha, don’t expect the game to launch until 2020.

The original Plants vs Zombies released in 2009. Due to the success of the game, EA bought the company in 2011 and helped them release Plants vs Zombies 2 but it was exclusive to phones. The second game was harshly criticized by fans for excessive micro transaction and the need for grinding which slowed down and made the game frustrating. I personally disliked the 2nd one for those practices after enjoying the first title so much. Hopefully the 3rd title won’t have the same issues.

Are you excited for Plants vs Zombies 3?

Happy 5th Anniversary to the PlayStation 4

PS4 Fifth Anniversary


The PlayStation 4 has been the dominating console in this current generation. Sony has been releasing great exclusives and has dominated the Xbox One. Below are some of the statistics PlayStation released.

Ironically, the highest selling games aren’t exclusives. Call of Duty remains the most dominant shooters for consoles. FIFA is the most popular sports games. Fortnite needs no introduction as it’s one of the most popular games at the moment. GTA V has recently sold over 100 million units.
