out the overview here:
Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is a new game
that welcomes players to Neighborville, a suburban region where the clash
between flora and undead is always flourishing. PopCap is launching the next
title in the beloved Plants vs. Zombies franchise with a whole new way to play
ahead of launch.
Featuring over-the-top action that fans of previous Plants
vs. Zombies shooter titles have come to know and love, players can jump down
into Giddy Park for light multiplayer battles or use the social board to
interact with other players and group up. Players will unravel the threats of
three free-roam regions, including the familiar central location of
Neighborville Town Center, as well as adventuring through the outer edges of
Neighborville in the hot and dusty Mount Steep, and the lush and strange
Weirding Woods regions.
At the core of Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for
Neighborville is the game’s emphasis on thrilling multiplayer gameplay. Players
can battle it out with 20 fully customizable character classes, including
returning favorites like Peashooter and Chomper, along with some fresh new
faces such as Night Cap, a master of the shadows, and the funky disco queen
Electric Slide. The character roster also includes a Team Play class for each
faction, Oak and Acorn, and Space Cadet. Additionally, players can join forces
and kick some grass in split screen couch co-op* and online co-op across every
mode, whether it is battling through flourishing free-roam regions or jumping
into battle in six different multiplayer modes. The fun doesn’t stop there as
players can then partake in Festivals after the game’s October launch to unlock
new seasonal rewards.
Neighborville Town Center – From Dave Manor, the
plants’ HQ, in Sundrop Hills to Zomboss HQ in Pressure Pier, Neighborville Town
Center is where your journey begins.
Mount Steep – Mount Steep is a great place for
Neighborvillians to learn about history, mining, and dust. But the real draw is
the Cheese Factory.
Weirding Woods – The Z-Tech Factory close to
Camp Near-a-Lake is surrounded by Dreadwood’s angry trees and angrier roots,
trapping zombies inside.
Colossal Fossil – Some of the world’s largest
dinosaurs were discovered in these mines. The Enormosaurus. The
Tremenduceratops. Even the B-Rex.
Daisy Drive – Watching Sunflower battle an Imp
from a house that’s been raised off the ground by Z-Tech thingamabobs? Just a
typical day in Neighborville.
Goopy Gully – Dr. Zomboss wants to plant a flag
in Rocky Flats and is starting by drilling a huge hole in the middle of it. The
plants must stop him!
Loggy Acres – The Z-Tech Factory is under fluffy
siege thanks to the plants’ Mallowmortar. Send in s’more reinforcements!
Peachy District – Zombies are spreading Signal
Boosters to hack the TV station and launch the Brainzcasting Network: “TV So
Good, You Don’t Need Brainz.”
Ruiny Ruins – What did the gnomes use this
ancient temple for? A place to store hundreds of carved stones they
accidentally ordered online? Who knows!
Z-Tech Factory – Where does a zombie get all
those wonderful traffic cones, buckets, screen doors, and tackle dummies? Why,
the Z-Tech Factory of course!
Turning Point – Ever wonder why lighthouses look
like rockets that can launch brain-finding satellites into space? Us neither.
Online Multiplayer: Play With Your Favorite
People – Ready the Juice Cannons and prepare for battle in six online
multiplayer modes, including intense 4v4 Battle Arena in the Funderdome. Plus,
you can join forces with your favorite people and experience split-screen couch
co-op* in every mode.
Explore Neighborville: Free-Roam Regions and
More – The battle is blooming with Ops mode and three free-roam regions. Squad
up with up to three friends in the Giddy Park social region and take back
Weirding Woods, Mount Steep, and Neighborville Town Center.
Masterful Mingling: Get Going in Giddy Park – Jump
into Giddy Park from Dave Manor or Zomboss HQ and squad up or battle it out
with friends in this social region. Head to the shooting gallery, ride the
Ferris wheel, tickle the keys on the giant piano, or dive straight into combat.
