Chinese language online game developer MiHoYo is asserting a model new sport, and it appears like one other banger. Titled Zenless Zone Zero, the upcoming PC and cellular title is styling itself as an “city fantasy motion RPG.”

From the outline it’s in all probability protected to liken it to Genshin Impression, a minimum of by way of gameplay. Gamers are known as a Proxy, and can construct a workforce of characters to journey by Hollows — bizarre pocket dimensions — to battle monsters known as Ethereals.

The place this actually captures the creativeness, for me a minimum of, is the setting. Zenless Zone Zero units itself in New Eridu, the final bastion of humanity. It’s a submit apocalyptic setting; bizarre portals into pocket dimensions (the Hollows) stuffed with monsters pop up throughout and principally break everybody’s day. Civilization fights again, develops know-how to take advantage of the portals for assets and that appears to be the place the sport picks up.

It’s a premise I’ve seen explored in quite a lot of works of fiction, nevertheless it’s comparatively contemporary within the online game scene. It additionally occurs to be proper close to the highest of my favourite genres. The announcement has me excited in a approach that Genshin Impression didn’t handle to do.

Look. I loved Genshin Impression for a scorching minute. Lots of people proceed to love that exact sport. The mixture of cute anime characters, clean gameplay and a neat fantasy setting is principally a recipe to print cash.

However I can solely play a fantasy sport that isn’t Closing Fantasy XIV for thus lengthy earlier than my consideration drifts. An city fantasy sport, although? I’m at all times in for a kind of, and MiHoYo’s obtained sufficient credit score constructed up with me for me to leap in with each toes.

Zenless Zone Zero is at the moment accepting sign-ups for a closed beta take a look at. An official launch date continues to be pending.
