What you need to know
- EA says that a new Plants vs. Zombies game is on the way.
- Today, alleged screenshots from the game were posted online.
- There are new plants and zombies in the new game.
- We should hopefully know more about it at Gamescom 2019.
Updated August 10, 2019: According to a European trademark, EA just acquired the name of Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville.
A few months ago, EA announced that a new Plants vs. Zombies game was on the way. While everyone expected it to be Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 3, we didn't know for sure. However, it seems like a few screenshots leaked online and were posted on Reddit and Twitter.
In the three images, we can see a couple of new plants and zombies. Acorn, Night Cap, and Snapdragon the new plants, while the old-school Action Hero, Electric Slide, and Space Cadet are the new zombies. The designs are quite unique because the Snapdragon actually looks like a green dragon.
The map also looks like it's much bigger this time around. There are also a lot of activities to take part in aside from fighting it seems. Hopefully, at Gamescom 2019, the game will be officially revealed and given a release date. Until then, be sure to check out the screenshots to see if you can learn something else.

With the things currently going on in-game PvZ GW2 right now, it does seem like they are giving players the opportunity to get as many characters, items, and coins as possible. So it wouldn't surprise me if a new version is right around the corner. The community challenges in the last couple weeks have each paid out 750,000+ coins, and Rux seems to be around every day now to sell you those highly sought after accessories. So it feels like they are giving players an easy way to really collect as much stuff as possible before the new game comes out, and it all transfers there, similar to how your unlocked characters transferred from PvZ GW1 to PvZ GW2. I'm guessing they might transfer more than just characters this time?
There's a beta on Android for the next game...we know what the next PVZ game will be....
This clearly isn't a mobile game. It's running on PlayStation 4.
I'm a tester for the new pvz game and I can tell you it's really fun
Does it have a real name? Please tell me it's actually not "Picnic."
The credits in game say Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare 3 but it's codename is Picnic. Someone forgot to change the credits name as everywhere else in the game uses the word "picnic" and it is coming out this year going off the logic that in game its says (c) 2019. The EA anthem test in 2018 had the copyright date of 2019 the year it was released
As for the alpha part that I'm testing that is the name
