EA Offers Up PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES For Free

Searching for something to play this weekend? Love plants? Hate zombies?

EA is offering up the Game of the Year Edition of Plant vs. Zombies on Origin for the PC and Mac (it was $4.99 previously).

The catch is that you’ll need an Origin account in order to take advantage of the deal, but EA’s download service is fine, all things considered. It’s a friendly way from EA to get you to bypass Steam (although, you know, good luck with that).

The Game of the Year Edition adds new content to the 2012 tower defense game, including the ability to customize your own zombie. The deal comes on the five-year anniversary of the original game’s release from casual game studio PopCap.

Since then, it’s racked up millions of sales and a shelf full of awards while getting gamers to do a little anti-zombie gardening. It’s genuinely one of the more engaging and addictive games in the genre, eating up hours of my time, but looking at the franchise history over just five short years, you can see the weird arc that EA (and gaming as a whole) has started to take.

The free-to-play sequel, Plants vs. Zombies 2 is still out there in the wild on computers and mobile (that game will celebrate its first anniversary in July).

With the new console generation, the series took a left turn for the weird with the release of Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, a class-based shooter (yup) for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. EA recently added microtransactions to the shooter which has had to carve out a niche for itself in an already crowded genre.

    I’d personally also like to state that most individuals that find themselves without health insurance are normally students, self-employed and those that are without a job. More than half with the uninsured are under the age of Thirty-five. They do not sense they are needing health insurance since they are young plus healthy. The income is often spent on real estate, food, along with entertainment. Many people that do work either full or as a hobby are not supplied insurance by means of their work so they proceed without as a result of rising tariff of health insurance in the us. Thanks for the ideas you discuss through this blog.
