Plants vs. Zombies Online is a Chinese MMO SNS tower defense game with simulation and RPG elements, released by PopCap Games and Tencent Games. It is available to play at PvZQQ. In order to play Plants vs. Zombies Online, one must create a QQ account.

The most notable change in Plants vs. Zombies Online is the town feature and a Player vs. Player (PvP) system. The town is a place the player lives, with thousands of other players, and the player can choose to befriend them. PvP allows the player to battle their friends in the classic Plants vs. Zombies's Versus Mode. The player uses the plants they have developed to compete with others.

In terms of art style and gameplay features, it is more or less identical to Plants vs. Zombies 2. However, unlike it, it is a PC game with an online component with special gameplay elements of its own.

The game has three modes: a Town-building Mode where the player can unlock buildings and have a garden to grow and develop plants and make items; Normal Mode where the player defends their house from zombies around the worlds with plants, and a Adventure Mode which is a brand new mode. Its gameplay is a little like the popular mobile TCG "I AM MT". The player forms their own plants troop to battle against AI, as many as seven plant units which includes one from the player's friend can be sent into battle.

Due to the following shut down on August 11th, 2018, new QQ account registrations for the game no longer work. After the shut down, players will not be able to log into the game and the entire website as well as the server will be removed completely.

  • The game is only available in China, similar to the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2 and Plants vs. Zombies for mobile.
  • Plants and zombies show detailed health bar on their head when they get damaged. Armored zombies like Bucketheads show separate blue bar that shows the armor's health. Zombies and defensive plants still visibly degrade when damaged enough. Boss zombies have a large health bar at the top-right corner of the screen.
  • Ancient Egypt is extremely different, both in appearance, and music.
    • This area's normal level music is completely different from Plants vs. Zombies 2, but Ultimate Battle and Brainiac Maniac music are identical to their Plants vs. Zombies 2 counterpart. This is also the only area to have Ultimate Battle and Brainiac Maniac music.
  • Some music from the first game appears again here, for example, during the Boxing Minigame you can hear the Loon Boon theme in-game.
  • The second beta added a PvP mode, Racing Minigame, and Soccer Minigame.
  • The seed packets are blue and they are at the top of the screen, similar to the first game.
    • More recent versions of the game seems to have more variety of colors, like orange, purple, green, and white. These colors represent the number of upgrades the seed packet has from the Greenhouse.
  • There is a research area and PvP mode, unlike the other Plants vs. Zombies games.
  • Players no longer need to click to collect sun, they can just hover the mouse over them to collect them.
    • A Sun Bomb still needs to be clicked if the player wishes to detonate it. Also unlike the normal sun, a sun bomb that reaches the ground will automatically be collected.
  • The main game interface is a little similar to Plants vs. Zombies Adventures, the player can unlock places like Institutes (pubs, supermarkets, etc.). There is also a garden in where they can plant plants.
  • The player can now can choose one plant from other people before a level starts.
    • In this game, the player has only five normal seed slots which the player can freely use. The sixth slot is usable only for borrowing a friend's plant. The friend's plant will not conflict with the player's own seed packet selection so it can be used like an Imitater (for example, the player can bring two Sunflowers in a level). The seventh seed slot is automatically added and assigned to Winter Melon(-pult) if the player has a VIP subscription.
  • The player can upgrade plants now. (e.g. plant Peashooter on Peashooter to create a Repeater).
  • In PvP and garden missions, the player can select a group of either plants or zombies for an RPG turn-based battle.
  • Pirate Seas and Far Future are currently the only worlds that has the Gargantuar and Imp variant.
  • Stinky the Snail makes a cameo in this game from Insaniquarium and the original Plants vs. Zombies, appearing whenever the game is loading.
  • For some odd reason, there were soundbytes from Angry Birds in the game. This could have possibly been a glitch or a placeholder.
  • The game allows the player to hold up to four Plant Foods at a time. Unlike Plants vs. Zombies 2, the game still allows the player to collect a Plant Food after this limit is reached, but doing so will waste the collected Plant Food.
  • As in an update, the game now plays the Modern Day theme, Neon Mixtape Tour Ballad jam or Zen Garden theme in the town area.
