EA today announced that Plants vs. Zombies 2, the sequel to its popular lane defense game Plants vs. Zombies, has been downloaded nearly 25 million times since being released on August 15.

To accompany the announcement, EA has released a new infographic that shares some fun information about the game, including the fact that Plants vs. Zombies 2 downloads have already exceeded the total lifetime downloads for Plants vs. Zombies.

While the first expansion for the Plants vs. Zombies 2, "Far Future," has already been announced, our sister site TouchArcade has a new video that hints at another upcoming update involving aliens.

PopCap blasted us a mysterious pseudo-trailer for what we’re thinking might be the first clue for the next Plants vs. Zombies 2 update. It’s little more than a zombie standing in a field, the camera pans out… And it’s a huge crop circle corn maze sort of thing.

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

EZ to complete without IAP. People whining about IAP for PvZ 2 obviously haven't even played the game.

One of the most disappointing games of the year. IAP makes this game about as fun as an arsenic laced lollipop.

I have played it, and I have most of the stars, without using any of the IAP. Everything we could buy feel like cheating (other than the keys); even the powers available through in-game currency feel like cheating.

I think the original game was better, but I would still like to pay something for this game. But I'm not going to buy any of the microtransaction things, due to being against that kind of system, even if it's not intrusive. I wish PopCap had allowed us to pay for the game without using the microtransaction system; that would allow us to support them without telling EA more people are falling for the IAP system.

100% enjoyable without using IAP. Those items just get you to the end faster, and why do that? Very fun and addicting game. The new plants make up for the few original plants you have to buy to get.

Just ignore the IAPs and you're golden.

I normally loathe IAP games, but PvZ2 is actually one of the more enjoyable and user-friendly IAP based games I've seen. My wife has played through most of it and hasn't had to spend a dime yet. Yes, she sometimes goes back to earn some coins for special powers, but since there's lots of challenges that you can earn stars/keys anyway, that's not a problem. PvZ2 has a very friendly IAP.
