THQ Nordic has released a new gameplay trailer for Avalanche’s new title, Generation Zero; an explosive game of cat and mouse set in a vast open world. In this reimagining of 1980s Sweden, hostile machines have invaded the serene countryside, and players need to fight back while unravelling the mystery of what is really going on.
Players will be able to go solo or team-up with up to three of their friends in seamless co-op multiplayer. Players can collaborate and combine their unique skills to take down enemies, support downed friends by reviving them, and share the loot after an enemy is defeated.
According to the game’s description, all enemies are persistently simulated in the world and roam the landscape with intent and purpose.
“When you manage to destroy a specific enemy component, be it armour, weapons or sensory equipment, the damage is permanent. Enemies will bear those scars until you face them again, whether that is minutes, hours or weeks later.”
As you may have guessed, Generation Zero will be powered by the APEX Engine and will feature a full day/night cycle with unpredictable weather, complex AI behaviour, simulated ballistics, highly realistic acoustics and a dynamic 1980’s soundtrack.
The game is currently planned for a March 26th release.
