Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville, the newest shooter spinoff to the goofy tower protection authentic, launched correct yesterday after a short stint in early access. Popcap have been rigorously watering it with content material updates for just a few weeks, and now it’s able to blossom into its last kind. They’ve launched a pun-filled musical trailer to have fun.
There are a bunch methods to dwell out the continued battle between veggies and zombies, from a 4v4 elimination mode to an objective-based territory defence. You also can traipse across the map to seek out PvE areas, trend spots, and multiplayer questing. But the splitscreen sofa co-op that’s accessible for console people in each mode hasn’t made it to PC, sadly.
There’s 20 lessons to select from, with the plant aspect wanting a bit extra apparent. It’s straightforward to inform the distinction between a Night Cap and a Sunflower. But look intently and also you’ll see that not each zombie is alike. “Choose between classic fun-dead characters or new brain biters – gnaw-rly 80s Action Hero, boogie-bolting Electric Slide, or team player Space Cadet,” they say. The courting on these references, and the undeads’ shambling oldness in contrast with the vegetation’ youthful pleasure makes me surprise if Plants Vs. Zombies is in reality a metaphor for generational battle.
Regardless of its underlying themes, it’s been an extended whereas since Plants Vs. Zombies caught to its tower defence roots. Before this their newest announcement had been Plants Vs. Zombies 3, however that’s going on your mobile phone and it’s free to play, so that you’ll should dodge the microtransactions.
Still, the story lives on, even when the style modifications. Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville is accessible now for £35 on Origin.
