Zenless Zone Zero takes place in a futuristic universe in which civilization as we know it has disappeared. Following a supernatural phenomenon called hollows, it was purely and simply destroyed. Growing up, these species of supernatural black holes created completely distorted new dimensions in which evolve monsters, Ethereal.

As you can imagine, in the midst of this chaos, a last bastion of our civilization is trying somehow to survive. This is New Eridu, a shelter that lasts thanks to the precious resources contained in the dimensional rifts. In the game, you play as a proxy, essential guide to explore the latter and recover their riches. This will allow you to protect your bastion from enemy attacks, but also to discover the mysterious conspiracy behind this supernatural phenomenon and find a way to stem it.

The proxy seem to be distributed in different “houses”. As we write these linesonly two members of the gentle house have been revealed. First we have Anby Demara, a young girl with a mysterious past known for her fighting skills and the fact that she is trustworthy. Five days after unveiling this first character, Hoyoverse presented us Nicole Demara, the cunning and resourceful founder of the proxy agency Cunning Hares (known for its high prices).

Is there a connection with Genshin Impact?

If apparently the two titles do not have much in common (except their creators), we are not immune to seeing the two universes converged. With Hoyoverse, the developers indeed seem eager to produce worlds that are part of a kind of metaverse and can thus be linked to each other. If we look at Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact 3rd, we can find certain nods to each other, with characters from one reminiscent of some from the other. miHoyo took it further in May 2021 by unveiling a collaboration between the two titles.

So while Zenless Zone Zero appears to be set in a whole new universe, some winks and future collaborations with other Hoyoverse games, including the much-loved Genshin Impact, are not to be ruled out.

What will be the gameplay of Zenless Zone Zero?

We mentioned it above, Zenless Zone Zero is an action-RPG, but what form can it take? Well, you will have the choice between different characters (proxy) possessing their own abilities and weapons. These will change the course of your fights which should take the form of QTE. To attack the monsters present in the faults, it will indeed be necessary to press a series of keys with the right timing. Note that exploration in Zenless Zone Zero will also be tinged with roguelike mechanics.

One point remains unresolved: will Zenless Zone Zero be a gacha? It is indeed the favorite genre of the Chinese studio. The presence of several unlockable characters suggests that this will also be the case with Zenless Zone Zero. However, nothing has been confirmed about this yet.
