Genshin Impact Creators Unveil New Game, Zenless Zone Zero

Hoyoverse, the company behind Genshin Impact and the Honkai series, has a new action RPG on the way. The game is called Zone Zero Zenless, and it is an urban fantasy with many colorful characters. Hoyoverse announced the game on Friday with its first trailer. Zone Zero Zenless doesn’t have a release date yet, but Hoyoverse is allowing players to sign up for the closed beta on the game’s website.

According to Hoyoverse’s announcement, Zone Zero Zenless takes place in a metropolitan city after some sort of apocalyptic disaster that involves something called Hollows. Hollows are portals to another dimension that appear out of nowhere and can let monstrous creatures, known as Ethereals, into our world. While the Ethereals destroyed most of human civilization, the people of New Eridu managed to stay alive by extracting resources and technologies from the monsters’ domain to use for themselves.

Players assume the role of a Proxy, which is a guide that helps other people explore Hollows. As a proxy, they’ll take many different characters on their adventures through Hollows, while battling Ethereal and combining the abilities of other characters in the party for bigger combos and more damage.

Hoyoverse also says the game will feature roguelike elements, which likely means every trip to the Hollows will be a little different. Hoyoverse has yet to announce all of the game’s platforms; the closed beta test is only on iOS devices and PC.
