Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville announced!

PopCap has announced Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborvillea new game where players are welcomed to Neighborville – a suburban region where the flora and the undead are clashing. Featuring the over-the-top actions that fans of Plants vs Zombies know and love, players can jump into Giddy Park for light multiplayer battles or use the social board to group up or just interact with other players. Unravel the threats of three free-roam regions, including the central Neighborville Town Centre, adventure to the hot and dusty Mount Steep, or discover the lush and strange Weirding Woods.

At the core of Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is the emphasis on thrilling multiplayer. Battle it out in 20 fully customisable character classes, with returning favourites such as Peashooter and Chomper, along with some new faces such as Nightcap – a master of shadows, and Electric Slide – the funky disco queen. There is also a Team Play class for each faction, Oak and Acorn, and Space Cadet. Players can also join forces with split screen couch co-op or online co-op for every mode. You can also partake in Festivals after the October launch to unlock seasonal rewards.

Rob Davidson, Game Director at PopCap in Vancouver said, “Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville continues the tradition of sprouting fun between the brain-less and botanicals in our biggest and wackiest shooter yet. With the release of the Founder’s Edition, we’re embarking on a new journey alongside our dedicated community. We designed every week in the lead up to launch to focus on specific modes and different ways to play for us to optimise the game. This is an exciting approach we’re taking as it allows our fans to jump into the game early, earn exclusive rewards, and keep their in-game progression through the launch on October 18.”
