EA has today released Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Founder's Edition, seemingly out of nowhere. PopCap is launching the next title in the beloved Plants vs. Zombies™ franchise with a whole new way to play ahead of launch.
A trademark sprouted up for Battle for Neighborville last month, and a trailer leaked as well that revealed new characters. Players will unravel the threats of three free-roam regions, including the familiar central location of Neighborville Town Center, as well as adventuring through the outer edges of Neighborville in the hot and dusty Mount Steep, and the lush and odd Weirding Woods regions.
By playing the Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville Founder's Edition, you can earn a bunch of exclusive rewards, and you'll also get six weeks of free content drops with the first arriving alongside the game today. After that, anyone hoping to play will have to wait until the Standard Edition releases on October 18.
New modes and PvE areas will be released every Tuesday until October 8, when the only addition will be the start of a weekly PvP event. You'll have a smattering of basic NPCs to blow to bits, but this is a social hub, and players on the other side of the war between flora and the undead can come out for a bit of a fight. Developers have also created a special Discord channel that will allow players to share their thoughts directly with developers, which is why this is being dubbed the Plants vs. Zombies 3 beta. The game now includes co-op split-screen for any of the available modes.

Those who purchase the Founder's Edition have plenty to look forward to.
There will be 20 customizable character classes like Peashooter, Chomper, and new classes like night Cap and Electric Slide. The Founder's Edition is on sale now, and will be available until September 30. The Founder's Edition will see features that comprise the main game being added over the next six weeks, but you'll be able to carry on all your progress into the fully launched game.
Also available at launch will be Battle for Neighborville's version of battle passes, called Festival Prize Maps. Founding Neighbors can also build roots on forums and social networks via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube for more details as we get closer to worldwide launch in October.
