"Plants Vs. Zombies" is available to play for free on the publisher’s website, PopCap Games. Games also offers gamers the opportunity to play "Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare" free for 72 hours through their Game Time program on the Origin website.
Because of its popularity, "Plants Vs. Zombies" had a number of sequels, including a strictly free-to-play title called “It’s About Time.” This title was exclusive to the iOS but later moved to other platforms as demand increased. The free app has been downloaded over 25 million times. While this version of the game is free, players have the option to enhance their game with in-app purchases.
While "Plants Vs. Zombies" can be found on a number of different platforms, it is only available for free on a couple of them. Because the game has many different versions, some older versions are available for low prices. When new versions of the game are released, the platforms tend to have sales allowing gamers to get them for free. XBox and Playstation owners do not currently have access to a free version of the game. Free versions of the game may become available in the future to coincide with later releases.
