Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville will be revealed tomorrow

What you need to know

  • EA recently held a closed alpha of a Plants vs. Zombies game codenamed Picnic
  • A trailer leaked shortly after for Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville.
  • An official reveal is happening tomorrow.

EA has announced that Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville will be officially announced tomorrow on its website. A countdown timer has been put in place. This comes after last month's leaked trailer which outed the game from its closed alpha. It's unclear is this is a direct sequel to Garden Warfare 2 or just a spin-off because EA has opted for a different name.

We don't know just yet how much EA will reveal about the upcoming title. After the leaked trailer people assumed we'd get confirmation at Gamescom 2019, but that never happened. At the very least, you can still see the trailer online which showcases some gameplay.

The rumored release date points to sometime this October. Should this rumor pan out, this will put Plants vs. Zombies a couple of weeks ahead of Need for Speed: Heat, due out on November 8, 2019.
