Next Installment in Blockbuster Franchise Coming to the Console Market, Delivering Seven Game Modes, 21 Mini-Games and Exclusive Multiplayer Action

DUBLIN, July 19, 2010 - PopCap Games, the worldwide leader in casual video games, today announced
plans to release Plants vs. Zombies(TM) for Xbox LIVE(R) Arcade (XBLA) this
fall. With an anticipated launch in early September, Plants vs. Zombies on
XBLA will deliver more game content than any previous iteration of the
franchise, boasting seven game modes, including two all-new multiplayer
modes, 12 unique achievements and 21 mini-games. Upon its release, Plants vs.
Zombies for XBLA will be available for 1200 Microsoft Points (US$15.00).

"With a ton of new features and content exclusive to the XBLA version,
we've pulled out all the stops to both expand and optimize this adaptation
for a hard core gaming audience," said Ed Allard, head of worldwide studios
at PopCap. "The two new multiplayer modes allow gamers to work cooperatively
to defeat hordes of invading zombies, or go head-to-head in a true 'plants
vs. zombies' challenge. We're also featuring a customized 'house' for
tracking and sharing progress as well as a total of 21 mini-games and 12
achievements, all designed to enthrall Plants vs. Zombies players once

Plants vs. Zombies for XBLA showcases many standout features, including:

    - A goofy new way to track and share progress online, where players
      create their own custom house and cruise down the street to see their
      friends' cribs!

    - The highest resolution of any Plants vs. Zombies adaptation to date at
      1920 x 1080

    - All 50 levels of the original Adventure mode along with Puzzle,
      Survival, and Zen Garden

Later this year, PopCap will also release a retail boxed edition of
Plants vs. Zombies (including full versions of Zuma and Peggle as well) for
the Xbox 360 as well as a new "Game of The Year" boxed edition of the PC/Mac
original, a limited number of which will include a zombie figurine. Both are
expected to arrive on retail shelves later this fall and carry a suggested
retail price of US$19.99 each.
