Technically, it was already available but now it's super available.

After spending a few weeks in a reduced cost Early Access phase, the full release of Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is upon us today. This release is for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin. It's once again developed by PopCap and while it has a new name, this is pretty much Garden Warfare 3 in everything but name.

The game has spent roughly the past month having new modes and adjustments steadily roll out to the early adopters. Battle for Neighborville differs from the previous games in that it introduces you to the massive suburban region of Neighborville. There are three distinct free-roam areas to explore with their own story focused content that you can play through before you ever even consider hopping into the game's plant and zombie focused competitive multiplayer modes.

As far as multiplayer goes, there are six different modes and 20 customizable character classes. You can unlock various cosmetics for your classes. You can also advance your abilities by leveling up through normal play progression.

While I haven't played enough to offer up a full review, I will say that what I played has been enjoyable and I'd like to hop back in for more once I have time. The multiplayer leans more towards the first Garden Warfare in terms of feel but I'm not really the authority on any of these games.

Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is going for $39.99 (USD) for the base game or $49.99 for the Deluxe Edition that comes with two legendary costumes, a digital comic, and 5 emojis (for use in the game).

Like the previous Plants vs. Zombies™ shooter titles, over-the-top multiplayer gameplay continues to plant itself at the core of Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville with six online multiplayer modes including the new and frenetic 4v4 Battle Arena in the Funderdome. Alongside returning character favorites such as Peashooter, Sunflower, Imp and Mech and Soldier, players will bring even more strategic depth to the all-out botanical battle with six newly-sprouted faces such as the flame-blowing Snapdragon, and a new zombie of few words and fewer thoughts, 80s Action Hero. Also, new to the lineup is the Team Play character class where you and up to three others play together as Oak and Acorn for the plants and Space Cadet for the Zombie faction. All characters can get decked out with the wildest customizations yet.

Ridiculous quests, vibrant cosmetics and a familiar cast of zany characters are scattered across the game’s 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 strange Weirding Woods. Players can join forces in split screen couch co-op* and online co-op across every mode, whether it is battling through the flourishing free-roam regions or jumping into online multiplayer battles.

Additionally, players can jump down into the new Giddy Park social region in-between the action to engage in light multiplayer battles, while on different amusement park rides, or use the social board to interact with other players and group up. Giddy Park also includes a target range to test each character’s wildly different abilities and also a giant piano to play a catchy tune. Transformative monthly events such as October’s spooky Lawn of Doom Festival will also allow players to unlock seasonal cosmetic rewards and challenges.
