Popcap is launching Plants vs. Zombies 2 a bit early in Australia and New Zealand to help them test out all of the new systems and features they’ve built into the game. they’ve added a bunch of new features that allow players to take advantage of new technologies to make a better experience for players, and those innovations require you to perform some large tests to make sure they are ready for our worldwide audience to play.
"The goals of this focused launch are twofold: First, it’s to test our back-end server capacity to make sure we are ready and capable of handling the traffic of our players worldwide. (Don’t worry, you don’t have to be connected to play, we just want to make sure everyone can get the game.) Second, it’s an opportunity for us to test at scale how our players play the game as well as how they interact with our store.
If you happen to live in Australia or New Zealand, our test markets for the "soft launch," please be sure to remember that we are going to be testing all sorts of different aspects of the game’s functionality, pricing, stability, etc. So don’t be surprised if you see lots of changes during this testing phase. We are looking to see how players interact with the game so we can make sure we are making the best Plants vs. Zombies 2 experience possible!
