Zenless Zone Zero Announced, Closed Beta Sign-Ups Begin
HoYoverse announced its newest project, Zenless Zone Zero. The game is an urban fantasy action RPG and is confirmed for PC and iOS, with more platforms likely to be revealed in future. The company will be running a closed beta; the dates of the beta have not been announced, but sign-ups are available through the game’s website.
Zenless Zone Zero is set in the post-apocalyptic metropolitan city of New Eridu. It is the only place to have survived a supernatural disaster where otherwordly dimensions called Hollows appear and expand. The Hollows are home to monsters called the Ethereal. While the rest of civilisation has collapsed, New Eridu has found how to use the Hollows to acquire valuable resources.
Players control a Proxy, someone who guides those exploring the Hollows. The game features an action combat system utilising special skills and QTE-style combos, while exploration will include a roguelike mechanic.
