The new game from the creators of Genshin Impact has been unveiled as Zenless Zone Zero (opens in new tab)an action-RPG set in the last outpost of civilization following a world-ending calamity.
The end of civilization was wrought by a supernatural disaster that created the Hollows: “disordered dimensions” that appear out of nowhere, crawling with mysterious monsters called the Ethereal. The citizens of New Eridu were able to survive by acquiring technology that enables them to extract valuable resources from the Hollows. Over time, this enabled the city to explore and even expand into the Hollows, industrializing and monetizing it—a progression that has led to increasing tension between the city’s “monopolistic enterprises, gangs, conspirators, and fanatics.”
Amidst this chaos, players will become Proxies: Professional guides for people who seek to explore the Hollows, protecting them from enemies, assisting on their missions, and learning more about their stories.
