"Plants vs. Zombies 2" will have an even more exciting gaming ahead with its latest update.

Popcap's tower defense game will now have a new map, along with Pinata Party levels and even new zombies, like the Gargantuars.

According to its iTunes page, the new update will also bring in a method to progress faster and easier in the game. In addition to that, players will also be able to know their progress in the game and what they've gotten via the new user interface.

A Turbo speed is also available, though it's a blessing and a curse---players can speed up planting but also speed up the zombies. Lastly, players can now invite friends and send them gifts in the "Plants vs. Zombies 2" game.
