PopCap Games and Electronic Arts revealed Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, out now on major platforms.

Earlier in July, developer PopCap Games and publisher Electronic Arts has announced free-to-play mobile game Plants Vs. Zombies 3 on Google Play store from their popular strategy tower defense franchise Plants Vs. Zombies.

It was leaked back in April 2019 that Garden Warfare series will release a new title but then EA revealed and launched their latest third-person shooter game Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville at once on September 4, 2019.

Following a 24-hour countdown on social media, PvZ: Battle for Neighborville is released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This is more of an early access version of the game that will be adding features and new modes over time.

For next six weeks, EA will drop content for their newest multiplayer shooter from PvZ series, which is out now for purchase for $29.99 only as Founder's Edition until it gets full release on October 18 as Standard Edition for $39.99.

By time when Battle for Neighborville becomes fully available to play, both versions will have access to all contents. However, some cosmetic rewards are solely exclusive for owners of Founder's Edition for jumping in early.

Many aspects that made their past class-based shooter games successful will be re-invented to fit their new gameplay mechanics. A social hub called Town Center is where you go battling enemies, interacting with NPCs or to find collectibles.

Earlier in a presentation, PopCap reveals at Gamescom 2019 that PvZ: BfN to have ten classes of Plants and Zombies including some fan-favorite heroes from Garden Warfare series like Captain Deadbeard, Citron and Kernel Corn.

There is a ninja mushroom named Night Cap specialized in stealth attacks and a flame spraying attack class called Snapdragon. 80s Action Hero is all about exploding stuffs whereas Space Cadet zombie class can form a space station.

First PvP game mode to go live in Founder's Edition is Turf Takeover where up to 24 players play for an objective. Then 8v8 mode Team Vanquish will be making a return along with anticipated comeback of PvE horde mode Garden Ops.

One particular area Plants vs. Zombies: BfN do not wish to venture is Battle Royale, albeit of some fan-expectation, because either of Plants or Zombies don't fight their own kind and making that would be canonically wrong.

Although there are some premium in-game currency in there, EA representatives strongly emphasized on the fact that there will not be any loot box micro-transactions but players can but every item from Rux's Emporium cosmetics shop.

EA taking an early access approach for Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville like indie studios doesn't make much sense from a financial point but it would eventually help them launch a less bug-filled and more polished game.

You either follow a solo playstyle that is more combat-focused and handle most situations with punching and shooting down enemies or choose to be an expert netrunner, which is more stealth-based and focused on hacking stuffs.

Information on Project Resistance is pretty scarce and yet a Reddit user was able to grab a few thumbnails from a YouTube livestream link that are claimed to be from upcoming teaser trailer but they are not large enough to get a clear visual.

Aside from these stills being taken from a live-action video, all we can guess for now is that it will most probably be a four player co-op multiplayer game like Left 4 Dead and maybe a spin-off title like Resident Evil Outbreak from 2003.

Capcom has not cleared out anything about Project Resistance and given how Resident Evil has become their best-selling franchise by shipping 90 million units so far, maybe they are trying out something new other than survival horror genre.
