Welcome back, Neighbors! Today we’re discussing all the awesome content dropping in Week Four of the Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville™ Founder’s Edition, including a new exclusive reward, an exciting multiplayer event, and our latest free-roam region. Note that if you haven’t already, this is your LAST WEEK to join as a Founding Neighbor and take advantage of amazing benefits. Don’t miss your opportunity to play new content before official launch, including the upcoming Battle Arena – a brand-new 4v4 round-based elimination mode. Plus, you’ll take advantage of our special Founder’s price and show your pioneering spirit with an exclusive costume. Get all of the Founder’s Edition details here.
Not all horticultural heroes wear capes. Some wear flashy suits of armor with regal plumage flowing from their helmets. Founding Neighbors who log in by next Monday, September 30 will receive the exclusive Pea of Valiance Peashooter costume, perfect for all your vanquishing needs. Pick up your reward in game when you visit Rux’s Emporium.
Send in The Reinforcements
Today we’re launching a weekly multiplayer event, “The Reinforcements.” Wage all-out war against your enemies in Team Vanquish where every plant or zombie vanquished counts as a point, and each revive subtracts a point from the other team. The twist? You can only play as one of PvZ: Battle for Neighborville’s new characters! If you haven’t played as a new character, now’s your chance to test your skills.
Roam Free in a New Free-Roam Region
Welcome to Mount Steep! Have fun exploring this rocky region and maybe talk to the plants while you’re there. Rumor has it, the zombies have invaded Neighborville’s historic Olde Town and are up to something inside the mountain. Can you figure it out? You can access Mount Steep from Dave Manor (the plants’ base), and while you’re there, check out quests to complete, enemies to fight, and items to discover – including Golden Gnomes!
Keep Track with the Trello Board
Want to know how the game is progressing as we near official launch? Check out our PvZ: Battle for Neighborville Trello Board. This will provide you with visibility into how we’re addressing some of the bigger community issues that have been reported. We’ll be updating the board at least once per week. Note that this doesn’t account for everything we’re tracking, just the larger issues the community has raised.
Remember, if you haven’t jumped in as a Founding Neighbor yet, act fast! Getting into the game now gets you this week’s exclusive reward and a special Founder’s price of $29.99*. You’ll also get to experience the upcoming Battle Arena and Lawn of Doom Festival before the Standard Edition launches in three weeks! Your opportunity to join ends next Tuesday, September 30 at 9:00 a.m. PDT so don’t miss out. Get this early edition now.
But wait – what happens after September 30? Pre-orders for the Standard and Deluxe Edition begin, but you’ll still have three more weeks to play before the game’s official launch on October 18! After the official launch, you’ll have all the content included in the Standard Edition, but if you’d like to upgrade to the Deluxe Edition, you can do so for $9.99*.
Be sure to tune into Twitch for our Live from Neighborville stream this Thursday, September 26 at 11:00 a.m. PDT and come back next week for another News from Neighborville post. Also, please join the conversation on Discord to let us know what you think of the game! We’re excited to hear your feedback.
