Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville shows the long way the Plants vs. Zombies franchise has come since the original 2D tactical game.
With the groovy launch trailer, we get a glimpse at the entire character roster for both factions: plants and zombies. With few gameplay moments here and there, you can take a look at how the units play.
Battle for Neighborville is a third-person hero shooter similar to games like Overwatch and Paladins. This isn’t the first time the PvZ franchise does down that road – Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is a very “Overwatch” game. But this time, the plants and zombies fight it out in the expansive suburban area of Neighborville.
Branding it “their biggest and most accessible title yet,” developer Popcap brings 20 fully customizable characters, six of which are new to the franchise. Each character has a variety of wacky skins and weapons you can use in the game’s six multiplayer modes.
There’s a Team Deathmatch mode called Team Vanquish, the objective-based Turf War mode, and a new 4v4 Battle Arena.
The game also introduces three free-roam PvE regions, where players can group up and explore, find collectibles, and complete quests. The Giddy Park social region is where you can look for a group to play with, engage with the social boards, or just hang out. With all those possibilities, Battle for Neighborville has a lot to offer to players of all ages.
As an added bonus, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version support split-screen co-op in every game mode. So grab a pal or an enemy you’d like to destroy, choose your plant or zombie hero, and head into battle in the lush and ludicrous environments of Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville.
Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Origins. The game is also available through EA Access.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links.
