EA has officially announced that Plants vs. Zombies 3, the latest instalment in the Plants vs. Zombies series, is in development.
Starting today, there’s a playable pre-alpha available for download through the Google Play Store.
EA has warned that those undertaking the pre-alpha will most likely run into bugs and issues, but that’s all to be expected.
A limited number of downloads will be available for players in set phases. If you can’t find the option to download, check back another day to see if you can play.
The pre-alpha is currently only available on Android devices that are at least a Galaxy S7 or higher, with Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) or higher being required in order to play.
EA say that as Plants vs. Zombies 3 is under early construction and isn’t representative of the final game. As such, because of the changes being made to the game, it’s likely that your game progress may be wiped and reset.
However, the pre-alpha will be entirely free to play, and EA says that there “are no microtransactions during pre-alpha.”
