Plants vs Zombies 2 launched last year with three worlds, and an update followed months later that added a fourth one with a sci-fi theme. Now Electronic Arts has rolled out another expansion of content that introduces more plants, zombies, and stages to occupy players' time. And this one is decidedly darker.

The biggest change, as the 'Dark Ages' name would suggest, is the addition of nocturnal stages. Sun power won't fall from the sky, and rather than sunflowers, players will need sun shrooms to harness light in the dark of night. There are new plants that excel in this environment and new foes that are ready to mow them down.

What's new:

  • New plants that thrive in the dark of night
  • New zombies and a Gargantuar from the days of yore
  • Nighttime levels that bringeth the fun
  • Gravestones that provide sun and powerful plant food

For this year's E3, the team released a video that provides additional background information on the latest changes. Give it a lookover to see more of the brand new plants, the medieval theme, altered gameplay strategies, and other goodies.

This is only part 1 of the Dark Ages world, so look for more content to come in the future.
