Plants Vs. Zombies 3 – Playable Pre-Alpha Available Now!


Plants Vs. Zombies 3 Is Under Construction!

Recently, PopCap Games, the creator of Plants vs. Zombies not only revealed that Plants vs. Zombies 3 is under construction but also asked the community for help in making the “zombie-battling experience even better.”

Starting today, a playable ‘Pre-Alpha’ version of Plants Vs Zombies 3 is available through the Google Play Store. You will have to be quick however as there will only be a limited number of downloads available (more will become available over time), so if the option to download isn’t available at first, be sure to check the page later for your chance to play.

Currently, the Pre-Alpha is only available on Android devices and is available here!

Do be aware PopCap have stated that “PvZ 3 is under early construction and is not representative of the final game. Pre-Alpha is focused on getting feedback on combat features only.” So the pre-alpha may feel a little bare bones at the moment but from what I can gather there’s a lot of content to come!


Got some questions? Check out the FAQ’s below as shown on
