Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville’s Final Festival Has Begun

By on Sep 2, 2020 at 9:46 pm. Filed in News under Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville.

A new Festival is underway in Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville. Unfortunately, it will be the game’s last.

With the start of September came the arrival of the Fall Festival in Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville. As usual, the festival features a new Prize Map filled with prizes players can unlock using Prize Bulbs. New costumes for the Chomper and Imp & Z-Mech are up for grabs, along with tons of other cosmetic items. While new Festivals are typically cause for celebration in Neighborville, this time is more bittersweet than the rest, as the Fall Festival will be Neighborville’s last new Festival.

Alongside the Fall Festival, publisher Electronic Arts also announced that the final update for the game will be implemented at the end of the month. This means no new gameplay adjustments, bug fixes, or Festivals will be coming to PvZ: Battle for Neighborville after September.

However, there is some good news for players who missed out on prizes from prior Festivals. According to EA, previous in-game Festivals will return each month and will include the same Festival Prize Maps as before. Player progress on each prize map will be retained, meaning players can pick up where they left off to unlock remaining goodies on each Prize Map.

Wildflower and TV Head Debut

At the end of September, two new playable characters will finally make their official debut in Neighborville. The Wildflower and TV Head characters will be available near the end of the month and can be purchased from Rux using coins.

Similar to its predecessors, the game is a third-person shooter where players take control of the Plants or the Zombies in either a cooperative or competitive multiplayer environment. The game features 20 customizable gameplay classes, six of which are new to the franchise, and they are classified into three groups: attackers, defenders, or support. Each camp also has a new team play class that allows players of the same class to combine forms when they fight against enemies. Players can compete against each other in various competitive multiplayer modes, including the objective-based Turf War mode and the team deathmatch variant Team Vanquish. The game also features several player-versus-environment open zones which allowed players to explore, find collectibles, and complete quests. Split-screen local multiplayer is also available for all gameplay mode
