With its take on survival action, Generation Zero promises to send players back to the 1980s, through an alternate version of Sweden. As such, fans of the era (and the gaming genres at play here) can look forward to leg warmers, cassette tapes, Rubik’s cubes and even giant, death-dealing machines.
Generation Zero is a game about surviving a hostile environment, and it’s recommended that you do so with up to three friends. Single player is available for those with interest, but it’s said to be a lot more difficult and isn’t recommended over co-op.
“Every game we release is equally important for us, but the launch of Generation Zero is exciting as it’s the start of a new action franchise that we will evolve in close collaboration with our players over the coming years. We have a great history of building action-packed open world games together with tier one publishers, but this is the first action game we release within our self-publishing organisation,” says Pim Holfve, CEO of Avalanche Studios.
Generation Zero is set in 1980’s Sweden. The local population has disappeared, and hostile machines roam the once serene countryside. Starting today, players can explore the vast open world to unravel the mystery, perfect their fighting strategies, and prepare to strike back. To even the odds against the machines, players are encouraged to work together in groups up to 4, but can also enjoy the world of Generation Zero all on their own.
“The team is thrilled to finally get Generation Zero into the hands of players around the world and start receiving impressions and feedback,” says Paul Keslin, Product Owner at Avalanche Studios. “We’re looking forward to sharing more about our plans for what lies ahead, but more importantly we want to shape those plans together with the community. This collaboration will impact the world of Generation Zero in the months and years ahead!”
Generation Zero is now available for purchase and play, on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
