Starting today, you can become a Founding Neighbor in the latest conflict between brain-less and botanicals – and be the first to build roots in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville™! With this early edition, you’ll play through six weeks of weekly content releases ahead of launch and receive Founding Neighbor benefits, like getting the game at a special Founder’s price of $29.99**, as we progress towards launch on October 18.
Why are we inviting you to this early edition? Because our players are our most important critics and our biggest cheerleaders. You get us! You embrace our wacky weirdness and you love our games as much as we do. Because of that, we’re committed to providing you and the PvZ community with the highest quality experience we can.
Keep in mind, PvZ: Battle for Neighborville’s modes and features are already final. By giving our biggest fans a chance to come in now, we’ll be polishing performance as you play to ensure our scaled experience is running at peak levels for launch and beyond, making the PvZ: Battle for Neighborville experience the best it can be. Thanks, neighbor!

Q: How is this different from a beta test?
A: The Founder’s Edition is not a beta test. With only six weeks to go to our official launch, we’re ready to welcome you to the game! The Founder’s Edition is available to all players, allows for a players’ progression to roll over to the Standard Edition at launch, and focuses on scheduled roll-outs of new parts of the game to build to the final game over this timeframe. It is a program we’re rolling out to highlight our commitment to quality and the PvZ community.
Q: Can I still pre-order the game instead of purchasing the Founder’s Edition?
A: Yes. Both Standard and Deluxe Edition pre-orders will begin on September 30 at 9:00 a.m. PDT, for those players that haven’t purchased Founder’s Edition.
Q: Will I receive any additional benefits with the Founder’s Edition if I’m an Origin Access (PC) or EA Access (PS4/Xbox One) subscriber?
A: The Founder’s Edition is included with Origin Access Premier and will be accessible for Premier subscribers starting on September 4. Origin Access Basic and EA Access subscribers can buy the Founder’s Edition with a 10% subscriber discount between September 4 – 30.
Q: How will I get the Standard Edition at launch?
A: No additional step is required to get the Standard Edition at launch. At the end of the six-week Founder’s period, Founding Neighbors will have received all of content included in the Standard Edition, including the exclusive weekly Founder’s rewards that have been earned.
Q: Will my progress transfer to the Standard Edition at launch?
A: Yes, your progress will roll over to the Standard Edition of the game on October 18, meaning you can continue to play right through launch and beyond.
Q: Can I share content or livestream the game during the Founder’s period?
A: Absolutely. We encourage it!

A: There is no limit – everyone is welcome! However, please note that the Founder’s Edition is only available for purchase from September 4 – 30.

A: As often as you’d like! There is no requirement for how often you need to play, but please remember that you can only claim your exclusive rewards* by logging in on a weekly basis for the first four weeks. Players who purchase the Founder’s Edition after weekly rewards have been distributed will only receive rewards for the subsequent weeks, until September 30.
Q: How does the team collect my feedback?
A: We’ll be monitoring what’s working and what’s not in-game, so you don’t have to do anything but play. But we’ll also be listening closely to your feedback through EA-owned social channels, Live from Neighborville livestreams, and our PvZ Discord channel.
