Zenless Zone Zero is an upcoming free-to-play RPG by HoYoverse, the same developers of the popular game, Genshin Impact, so you may want to know all the gameplay details, platforms, and even the release date.

Adapting the same art style but with an anime-inspired aesthetic, the game is set in a futuristic urban city called New Eridu where the last remaining segments of humanity are split between warring factions. Among these factions rises the player, a Proxy who can travel between Hollows, the spawning point for many of the horrors inflicting the planet.

Do we know the release date for Zenless Zone Zero?

It has now been officially confirmed that Zenless Zone Zero will be released on July 4, 2024, so you won't have too long to wait until you can dive into New Eridu.

While it took a while for something like Genshin Impact to make its way to console, it's fantastic news that you'll be able to play Zenless Zone Zero on all available platforms at the same time.

What platforms will Zenless Zone Zero be on?

  • PC
  • Mobile (Android/iOS)
  • PlayStation 5

There's currently no information regarding an Xbox release though, but I wouldn't hold out hope considering Genshin still hasn't jumped over either.

Are there any trailers so far?

State of Play 2024

The latest trailer for Zenless Zone Zero provides a sneak peek into both the characters and the world of New Eridu. It was first shown during the State of Play presentation in January 2024.

Gamescom 2023

There's also a trailer from Gamescom 2023 that you can check out, giving further details into the fascinating world that you'll find yourself in.

All gameplay details we know so far

Zenless Zone Zero takes place in a post-apocalyptic world destroyed by a cataclysmic event, where dimensions known as Hollows have spawned monsters to wreak havoc on the population.

Among the ruins, the last city, New Eridu, has become a beacon of hope for citizens. Over time, New Eridu has become corrupt with the population split between warring gangs and factions, fighting over the resources extracted from the Hollows. Amidst the chaos, you play as a Proxy, a hired professional Hollow traveller.

Like Genshin Impact, we will get to choose between a brother and sister to play as, and the game will operate on a party system, swapping gameplay between a roster of characters. As such, we can expect to see a similar gacha system from previous HoYoverse titles.

All confirmed characters so far
