Big news, PvZ Fans: two new Heroes are coming to Plants vs. Zombies Heroes. Beta-Carrotina and Huge-Gigantacus join as the Lawn of a New Battle continues to go galactic! Along with these two new Heroes also comes a number of Rarity and Balance changes, and we've got the details below. Get ready for Ranked Season 3 by reading on.

Brand New Heroes

Beta-Carrotina [Guardian / Smarty]

As leader of the Plant-etary Guard, Beta-Carrotina is ready to root our Zombies where ever they crop up. She can conjure up a storm, and her crew of carrots will put the zombies in their place.

Huge-Gigantacus leads the zombie space invasion, and will “Terror-Form” the Earth with all kinds of strange Environments. Go on, tell him he's actually quite small. See what happens. You're not going to like it.

  • Terror-Former 10,000 - 1 Brains. Trick. Conjure an Environment. All cards in your hand cost 1 less.

Rarity and Balance Changes

Opening and playing with Super-Rare and Legendary cards are some of the most exciting moments in the game. To make sure those cards are especially awesome, we've made several of them more powerful, adjusting the rarities to match. We've also taken this opportunity to tighten the balance between strategies by giving some extra improvements to strategies that could use a little boost. Here's the full list of balance changes - other than tweaks to Mushroom Grotto and Medulla Nebula, they are all power-ups:

  • Mushroom Grotto is more expensive (3 Sun, not 2).
  • Medulla Nebula is more expensive (3 Brains, not 2).

  • All-Star Zombie is tougher (6 Health, not 5).
  • Zombie King is stronger (2 Strength, not 0).
