Can you dig it? The second part of the new content update for EA’s Plants vs. Zombies 2: The Dark Ages, is now live and wending its way to your very own zombie-infested iPad, iPhone, or Android device.

This new content update has ten new levels and two new plants: the Magnet-shroom and the Pea-nut, which gets you both offensive and defensive capabilities. There are new Zombies as well, with the dastardly Wizard zombie, who turns your plants into sheep, and the King zombie, who can upgrade peasant zombies on the fly.

If you play through the extra levels, you’ll come across a new zombie boss, too, and there’s an additional Arthur’s Challenge to hone your old-school medieval skills with. Check out the trailer below to see some of the new content in action.

Plants vs Zombies 2 is the free-to-play sequel to 2010’s hit strategy game from PopCap, Plants vs Zombies. This new game iterates on the same formula as the first — set plants in opposition to hordes of wacky zombies in various settings — but takes the action to various times in history, like Ancient Egypt and the Wild West.

The zen flow that happens while defending your house from the marauding zombies is a ton of fun, and the game has a fantastic sense of humor. The additional ten levels and additional plants and zombies will let fans return to the PvZ universe and try their hand with these new strategy pieces.

Plants vs Zombies 2 is available for free right now, so if you’re a fan, or have yet to experience the glory of a long PvZ session (one! more! level!), head on over to the App Store and grab your copy right away.
