Here's our first real look at Plants vs. Zombies 3


Pre-alpha available on Android

We'll always have the original Plants vs. Zombies. I'm just putting that out there now.

This week, PopCap and EA began testing Plants vs. Zombies 3 with a pre-alpha version available to Android users. You'll need at least a Galaxy S7 running Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) or higher.

Here's the catch: "A limited number of downloads will be available for players in phases, so if the option to download isn't available at first, be sure to check the page another day for your chance to play."

The first few screenshots show 3D character models and multiple types of items to stockpile, though EA has noted that the pre-alpha build is free-to-play and lacks any active microtransactions.

This early playable build certainly looks the part, and on that front, the developers are only taking in feedback regarding "combat features." I'd expect the models, animation, and balancing to come into place later. According to Plants vs. Zombie 3's Google Play listing, they're "saving a lot more for later."

Lastly, EA reiterated that PvZ 2 isn't going anywhere. So far, I'm not too stoked.
