Plants Vs. Zombies: Battle For Neighborville Final Update Coming Soon
The Fall Festival will be the last big update before the PvZ shooter moves into recycling older game events going forward.
Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, the latest 3D shooter iteration of the franchise, will get its last update at the end of the month. EA announced what's coming through this final month of content, which will culminate in an appropriately harvest-themed Fall Festival event.
According to the announcement, this month will add two new characters: Wildflower and TV Head Zombie. Those were previously exclusive to weekly events in August, but you can pick them up with Coins in late September. You can use your Prize Bulbs in the Fall Festival map to score cosmetics like epic hats, victory slabs, emojis, and special costumes for Chomper, Imp, and Z-Mech. The Ranked Battle Arena will return to an unranked mode and away from the seasons.
Moving forward, the game will begin rotating previous Festivals and their associated Prize Maps, so you can collect any cosmetics that you missed out on at the time. What's more, each of the Festival Prize Maps will remember your progress from the last time it came around, so you can just pick up from where you left off.
Battle for Neighborville was the third shooter spin-off from the Plants vs. Zombies series, following Garden Warfare and Garden Warfare 2. It released in September 2019, so this month's update gives it just over a full year of updates. It received generally positive reviews, according to GameSpot sister site Metacritic.
