Though the newest installment of Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville had its trailer and map leaked last month, the official reveal came today with a new gameplay trailer. It confirms some of what we already knew, but it also showcases a slew of exciting and frankly barmy new features.
These include team-play classes, which allow you to combine with other players into wacky hybrids of destruction, a bit like a Power Rangers Megazord. Whether that’s the plant combo, Oak and Acorn, or the Zombie cadets’ flying Space Station, each is a terror on the battlefield. But be wary — if one of you goes down, you all go down. New characters are also introduced to the roster, each with their own unique abilities. Snapdragon can use homing fireballs, while Nightcap can use a deadly ‘Fung-fu’ finisher.
Battle for Neighborville will also feature split-screen co-op in every mode, which is a nice old school touch allowing you to create those new team-play classes with your friends. And you’ll have plenty of places to try them out — The Funder Dome is an intense three team battle arena, or you can go even bigger with huge 24-player matches.
