The Game Is Being Developed and Published by Avalanche
Avalanche Studios have invented their own War of the Worlds, and it’s set in their homeland of Sweden. Today, the studio released a new trailer for their all-new, self-published game, Generation Zero.
Generation Zero is a first-person shooter running on the developer’s own Apex engine (reportedly the same engine being used for Rage 2). Judging by the trailer alone, the game offers a co-op experience in which players hunt down hostile robots in an open world. Since events unfold in the backdrop of 1980s Sweden, the loadouts are limited to what was available back in the day. You may even liken the footage to Left 4 Dead if you replaced the zombies with robots. Does that sound like a game up your alley? If so, be sure to check back for updates coming out of this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, where Avalanche will no doubt be in attendance.
Beyond the trailer, Avalanche released a single description for the new project, available below:
“Experience an explosive game of cat and mouse set in a vast open world. In this reimagining of 1980’s Sweden hostile machines have invaded the serene countryside, and you need to fight back! Go it alone, or team-up with up to three of your friends in seamless co-op multiplayer. By utilizing battle tested guerilla tactics, you’ll be able to lure, cripple, or destroy enemies in intense, creative sandbox skirmishes.”
Generation Zero is slated for release in 2019 and will be made available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
