Avalanche Studios Announces Open-World Action Game Generation Zero

Generation Zero PS4 Play Station 4 2

Avalanche Studios, the studio behind Just Cause and Mad Max, has announced their new, self-published IP.

The announcements just keep coming.

Generation Zero is a multiplayer co-op game set in a post-apocalyptic version of Sweden in the late 1980s, in which hostile machines have taken over.

Avalanche Studios has in fact become sort of a specialist for over-the-top open-world action games.

In Generation Zero, players will explore a vast open world, rendered with the award-winning 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.


Nothing in the trailer really tells us about the story, but we do get to see players facing off against some angry looking machines as well as one huge robotic creature.

The Generation Zero world has days and nights and the robots are "persistently simulated", meaning the enemy is constantly roaming around looking to take you out. Strategizing is key, and guerilla tactics encouraged to "lure, cripple, or destroy enemies in intense, creative sandbox skirmishes". You will be able to play the game either solo or with up to three friends in Co-Op. The good news is, once you destroy or injure an enemy, it's permanent.

But not only in style does Generation Zero want to shine. That means you can come back minutes, hours or even weeks later and the enemy will still bear its battle scars.

In development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Generation Zero represents Avalanche Studios foray into self-publishing, and is now slated to release sometime next year, 2019.
