Avalanche Studios, mostly known for their chaotic Just Cause franchise and post-apocalyptic survival-racing title Mad Max, recently revealed Generation Zero.
set in 1980s Sweden, Generation Zero pits players on their own or with up to three of their friends to overcome deadly machines overtaking the countryside. Players will be equipped with guns and can upgrade their weapons and armour by destroying their robotic enemies. Most interestingly, if you come across a robot and a fight occurs and you manage to deal damage, the damage is permenant and when you meet the same robot again, it will still have the scars.
1980’s Nostalgia. Cutting Edge Visuals.
Explore a vast open world, rendered with the proprietary Apex engine, featuring a full day/night cycle with unpredictable weather, complex AI behavior, simulated ballistics, highly realistic acoustics and a dynamic 1980’s soundtrack.
Get Ready. Then Fight Back.
All enemies are persistently simulated in the world, and roam the landscape with intent and purpose. By tactically combining weapons, skills and equipment, you’ll be able to lure, cripple, and destroy your enemies. If you manage to destroy a specific enemy component, be it armor, weapons or sensory equipment, the damage is permanent. Enemies will bear those scars until you face them again, whether that is minutes, hours or weeks later.
1-4 Player Seamless Multiplayer.
Go it alone, or team-up with up to three of your friends in seamless co-op multiplayer. Do anything in your power to level the playing field; scavenge for weapons and equipment, set traps and use the environment to your advantage in intense sandbox combat. Collaborate and combine your unique skills to take down enemies, support downed friends by reviving them, and share the loot after an enemy is defeated. In Generation Zero, living is winning.
Generation Zero is expected to release later in 2019 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Check the announcement trailer below.
