Genshin Impact Maker Shows Off Its New Game, Beta Registration Now Open
A new game from the creators of Genshin Impact has been announced as Zenless Zone Zeroan action role-playing game set in the last outpost of civilization after an apocalyptic catastrophe.
The end of civilization was caused by the supernatural disaster that created the hollow: a “dimension of disorder” suddenly appeared, crawling with mysterious monsters known as ethereals. The inhabitants of New Eridu were able to survive by acquiring technologies that allowed them to extract valuable resources from the void. Over time, this has allowed the city to explore and even expand into the hollow, industrializing and monetizing it – a process that has led to growing tensions between the city’s “monopolies, gangs, conspirators and fanatics” exacerbated.
In this chaos, players become agents: providing expert guides to those seeking to explore the Hollow, protecting them from enemies, assisting them in their quests, and learning more about their stories.
Zenless Zone Zero will feature a “smooth, cinematic action-oriented combat system” with multiple characters offering different skills and combinations, developer HoYoverse says the new “Metaverse Brand“MiHoYo.” And “a roguelike game mechanic waiting to be explored”, and while I’m totally unclear what that means in this particular case, my guess is that the adventure into Hollows will be somewhat random .
The good news is that we won’t have to wait too long to get a proper look at what it’s all about: Anyone interested in giving it a shot can sign up for the closed beta at zenless.hoyoverse.com. The beta start date will be announced at a later date – for now, you can find it at Tuning Test FAQ.
