After months of work, the game was officially released globally in April 11th, 2021, nearly a year after the first game was released.

Latest News

The free update comes with a new premium plant for players to purchase.

Main Gameplay

Plants vs. Zombies Build Your Lawn! 2 is a party game that has 20 turns or more, each player has its own lawn and they start from that point, each lawn is at each corner of the board. There are multiple boards to pick from and each of them has a different layout. You will roll a dice block that has 6 sides and you will advance the shown spaces. You want to reach the Crazy Dave's Plant Stores that are in certain spots to buy him plants with Sun, you can get Sun by playing minigames at the end of each turn or by landing on the Sun space, or you can get them by planting Sunflowers in your lawn. The objective of the game is to defend your lawn from the zombies, you accomplish this by planting defending or attacking plants to prevent the zombies from reaching your house. The layout of your lawn is this one:

  • 9 columns
  • 5 rows

The gameplay of Plants vs. Zombies: Build Your Lawn! 2 remains almost equally from its prequel, except with a few minor changes. First of all, the game no longer features any pixel art, now the artstyle is a combination of that of Plants vs. Zombies 2 and Plants vs. Zombies Heroes. Second of all, items are a new implementation to complement the battle gameplay, they can be obtained through the boards in special spaces.

Just like in its prequel, players must roll the dice in order to move through the board, and collect goodies that will help them fight zombies or affect other players. Each player also has their own lawn which must be protected from approaching zombie by purchasing plants on the boards. Plants are bought in Crazy Dave's Plant Stores, special spaces that when a player passes through, will open a store where plants can be bought, and then placed in the lawn. After each player has rolled the dice, a minigame will be played, in which players can gain Sun, the currency to buy plants, once the minigame is over, the lawn action begins! Zombies first move a set number of tiles, if they have reached a plant, they will start eating it the next turn instead of moving (Some plants have different toughnesses), plants then attack zombies to defend your house, while other plants like Sunflower produce Sun or trigger other abilities to help out. If zombies reach your house, you lose, leaving the other players left to play, once all players but one have lost, the game ends with the remaining player winning. If the match lasts the 20 turns, then a Sun count is done, with every plant in the lawn being worth its cost, along with the Sun the player has left, zombies affect this counter as well, reducing it equal to how much they cost. At the end, the player with most Sun wins.

The party side remains equal, players roll dice blocks, play minigames and gain Sun used to battle, although 5 Sunflowers aren't spawned at the beginning of the match, instead players begin with 100 Sun each. However, the truly biggest change of the game is the Story Mode, which is used to unlock new things like Boards, Heroes, Dice Blocks and plant lines, learn more about it below.

The game will also feature DLC content, which will be paid, but it will bring new plants, zombies and boards in the same way Plants vs. Zombies 2 did, by worlds with different gimmicks.

Story Mode

Welcome to Battle Island! In this place you will move using your dice block and gaining Sun through minigames, you will face many challenges in the way that will unlock many new features for you. Your goal is to reach the Toxic Volcano in the island, but for that you will have to go through all other 5 areas of the Battle Island. Once you get to Toxic Volcano, you will have to battle Dr. Zomboss and his minions, and if you beat him, you get some juicy rewards, but if you fail, you will have to retreat to a random place of the island.
Crazy Dave


The Story Mode is the main game mode of the game. In it, you will go through a massive board, moving with the help of dice blocks, and facing a minigame against CPUs after 3 rolls, gaining Sun used to buy plants. Plants are used to complete challenges along the way, which if completed with certain standards will grant the player many new items, like plants, zombies or boards for the "Regular Match" mode. In the case the player completes the challenge but not with the conditions met, it can continue the adventure, but will not get any rewards. And if the players loses the challenge, then it will have to try the challenge again, but not before it reaches the challenge space again, as it will be taken some spaces backwards as a punishment.

The challenges are turn-based battles against set zombies, in which the player will use the plants it has bought to defeat the zombies of the challenge and win. Plants can only be used a set amount of times before disappearing, in which case the player must buy new plants with Sun. There are 4 different types of challenges, each one granting a different reward.

In the Story Mode, the same spaces of "Regular Match" are used. However, plants do not have turn clauses as in "Regular Match" mode because of special missions and gimmicks.

There are 6 worlds in this mode, each one harder than the previous one, and with special gimmicks. In every world, only the zombies unlocked there will appear in challenges, but unlocked plants from other areas can still be purchased. Each world is about 5 times bigger than a regular board, and they have a boss at the end, which if successfully defeated, grants the player the world's board in a smaller scale.

Boards & Lawns

The lawns are the main setting where the player fights against the zombies, and are located in front of the player's house. The boards are where the characters move, going through the different spaces, and where they buy the plants used on the lawns. Each board comes with a special lawn, and a gimmick.

Lawns are used in both the Story Mode and Quick Match modes. However, boards are exclusive to Quick Match, as a special unique board is used for the Story.

Each board and lawn have its own gimmick, see their effects below:

Extra Game Modes

Aside from the main Party/Turn-based modes, Plants vs. Zombies: Build Your Lawn! 2 features extra content and modes that can be played at any moment, here they are.

Minigame Garden

In this mode, the player can play any minigame they want with no restriction whatsoever. They can play as many as they want and can leave at any moment. Winning/Losing a minigame has no punishment nor a reward. However, for each minigame played, the player earns 50Zombucks.png.

2-4 Players can play this game mode at once.

Adventure Almanac

Read information about Plants, Zombies, Items, and Characters here. This mode grants no rewards, it's just for knowledge purposes.

This mode is for 1 player only.

Zen Glory

Grow plants in the Zen Garden by winning minigames. There are 16 plants to grow, each plant must be watered three times before it grows into a random plant from the collection. Plants will give the player that grew them a different amount of points based on what plant was grown. However, four of the plants in the garden reduce points instead of giving them. A minigame is played when the game first begins, and once it's finished, players get to water a number of plants based on their placement. The placements in the minigame also represent the order in which they water the plants. Once all players have watered their plants, a new minigame is played, until all 16 plants have been watered. After that, the player that got the most points wins.

The minigames played are Free-for-All only. Any tie given in a minigame is solved in a roll-off. First placers get to water plants twice. Second and third places water plants once. While fourth placers don't get to water plants. It's important to know that once a player has watered a plant, said plant cannot be watered until the next turn.

Here are the plants that can grow from the sprouts, the points they give, and how rare they are.

Zen Glory can be played with 2-4 players, both locally and with CPUs.

Ending this game mode in first place grants the player 1500Zombucks.png, ending it in second place grants 1100 Zombucks.png, ending in third place grants 700Zombucks.png, and fourth place grants 300Zombucks.png.

Endless Mode

Like a regular match, but endless. This mode is only against CPUs, and it will go on forever unless all players lose.

This mode can be played with 2-4 players, but all of them must be CPUs (Aside from Player 1) because of how the mode plays.

Every 5 waves, the player is awarded with 500Zombucks.png.

Puzzle Brewers

Puzzle Brewers is an Extra Game Mode that was added in the 1.3 update. It is a match-3 game, meaning that the purpose is to make matches of 3 of the same object or more either vertically or horizontally (Or both). Each match grants you some points and at the end, you will get Zombucks based on that.

Each combination of 3 objects gives you 30 points, with extra 10 points for each more object in the same match. If you make an “L” shaped match, you get 75 points. Square-shaped matches give 60 points. Once the game is finished, the number of points you earned is divided by 10, and that is the number of Zombucks you get.

You can play by yourself, or with 1-3 other players locally or online. In Online mode, the player that makes the most points after every player has used their moves or the time has run out wins. The prize is 250 extra Zombucks plus the ones earned from the scores.

If the player finishes the match before the timer runs out or all moves have been used, then they will gain no Zombucks.

The Mode can be played in 2 ways:

Moving Frenzy

Make as many matches as you can with limited moves! You can win extra moves by making wacky combos and combinations. Earn as many points as you can and get lots of Zombucks!

You can choose from 3 different move amounts:

  • 100 moves
  • 70 moves
  • 40 moves

Time Battle

Take advantage of the limitless moves you can make to earn lots of points! But take the timer into account, and make as much effort as you can to earn Zombucks before the time runs out.

You can choose 3 different timers:

  • 3:00 minutes
  • 2:30 minutes
  • 1:45 minutes

Botany Casino

This returning mode from the original game was added in the 1.8 Update. Players will go through a set of free-for-all minigames (They can pick from 5, 8, or 10), and they will gain Sun based on their placement. Before playing each minigame, players will bet some of the Sun (The quantity they desire). After the minigame, the winner will earn most of the Sun, second and third earn a lesser amount, with fourth earning no Sun. After 10 minigames, the player with most Sun wins. All players start with 100 Sun.

The Sun quantities you can bet:

  • 25 Sun
  • 50 Sun
  • 75 Sun
  • 100 Sun
  • Half your Sun
  • All your Sun

Note that you will earn less Sun if you bet less than the rest of the players, and vice-versa if you bet more.

How much Sun you get from the bid:

  • First Place - 60% (10% more or less based on the amount you bet).
  • Second Place - 25% (10% more or less based on the amount you bet).
  • Third Place - 15% (10% more or less based on the amount you bet).
  • Fourth Place - 0%

If the Sun gained ends up being a decimal, it will be rounded down to the nearest whole number. If a player runs out of Sun, it loses, and the game continues with the other players.

Online Houses Mode

Introduced in the 1.7 update, the Online Houses Mode is a new way to play online matches and to team up with other players around the world to become the best, strongest house for exclusive prices only available in this mode.

The first time you enter this mode, you get to choose between a House, there are 5 different Houses, each with an exclusive Dice Block that can only be used in this mode, and an exclusive badge. Badges are minor perks that can help you out in an Online House match to defeat a rival from a different house.

Anyone can join any House, you can meet players from all around the world here and expectate their matches against other Houses and send small goodies to help them out. Every individual player can send you a gift per match, while a big House-exclusive gift can be given only once by only one player per match.

Party Island BYL2.png

Every match takes place in Party Island, a place in which each House has settled and now lives to prove that they are the best one of them all. Each House has an equally divided territory in Party Island, and your job is to invade the other Houses’ territories by defeating a player from the opposing House in a Party match. The Houses’ territory is represented through Orbs, so after winning the match that Orb will switch colors into the one of your house, representing that the territory is now yours.

However, if a player attacks your House instead, all players from the house will receive a notification about it, and they can enter the match at any moment. In the meantime, a Master difficulty CPU will be playing (Same thing happens when you attack another House and no one joins). If you win the match, then the territory remains yours, and you get 250 Zombucks, but if you lose, the territory is lost and you earn no Zombucks.

The winning House is determined every 15 days as the one with the biggest territory of them all. The prices are an exclusive Seasonal Badge, a Premium plant costume, and 1000 Zombucks for each player that played at least one match. The Premium plant costume may return in a future season, but the Seasonal Badges are a one-time-reward. If you didn’t play any matches for the winning House, then you don’t earn any rewards. Multiple Houses can obtain prizes if they had the same territory, leaving the Season winner as a tie.

The player can switch Houses between Seasons, but not while one is currently going.

The matches can be played with any character the player wants, they last for 10 turns and are only played in the Wooden Forest board and lawn.

Mystery Eggs

If a player purchased the game prior to April 18th, they would get a mysterious screen with three Mystery Eggs when they first entered into the game. Then, they would have the option to "Keep" or "Toss" the Mystery Eggs. As of now, nothing has been done with these items, but it is confirmed that with a future update they will get a utility.

After months of work, the Mystery Eggs teased the Online Houses update that was released in January of 2022. The players that had kept them would get an exclusive badge for it.

Game Versions

Plants vs. Zombies: Build Your Lawn! 2 can be bought in two separate versions. The Basic Version costs $29.99 and it includes the game only. The Deluxe Version costs $59.99, but it comes with the first 6 DLCs for free.

Sales and reception

Plants vs. Zombies: Build Your Lawn! 2 received positive reviews and was acclaimed for fixing issues from its predecessor. As of January 2022, it has sold over 12.5 million copies, making it the 10th best-selling game on the Nintendo Switch, and surpassing the sales of Plants vs. Zombies: Build Your Lawn!, at 7 million copies.

Trivia

  • The minigame "Fire-Ice Battle" was originally named "Bipolar Pirojectiles" in Plants vs. Zombies: Build Your Lawn!.
  • Tangle Kelp, Imitater, Coffee Bean, and Mystery Fruit are the only 4 normal plants without costumes.
    • Tangle Kelp lacks them due to how obscure it is in-game and how little the costumes would be seen.
    • Imitater has no costumes because it only appears briefly as it quickly transforms into other plants.
    • Coffee Bean has no costumes because he is an instant use plant that does not stay long enough on screen.
    • Mystery Fruit has no costumes as even though it is not an instant-use plant, it just stays stale with no meaningful ability for a turn.
  • Premium Plants had no costumes until the 1.7 Update.
    • They were added as a reward to the Online Houses Mode, rather than as an item you could buy at the Shop.
  • The Shop was originally going to be in Plants vs. Zombies: Build Your Lawn!, but it was scrapped because there were not enough ideas for it.
    • In this game, it has been confirmed that the Shop will be updated constantly with new Premium Plants and costumes for Plants coming in future DLCs.
  • Despite not being present in-game, Electric Boogaloo is referenced in one of Life Lily's costumes.
  • Pizzeria Prison is the DLC with most original Plants and Zombies so far.
  • Flaming Pepper and Winter Melon are currently the most expensive plants of the game, with a Sun cost of 250.
