Mad Max creator unveils open-world shooter Generation Zero

Adjust Comment Print

The developer behind the Just Cause franchise has announced development of Generation Zero, a brand new open-world cooperative shooter set in Sweden. It's unclear just yet if or how these will factor into gameplay, but it should make for a more tangible world and will hopefully have to be considered while coming up with a strategy.

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.

As well as a look at the game's open world, and a listen to its dynamic 80s soundtrack.

According to their website, the co-op game will feature "unpredictable weather, complex AI behavior, simulated ballistics, highly realistic acoustics", and even the ideal 1980s soundtrack to put you in the mood. Enemies will be persistently simulated throughout the world, so you'll find them roaming across the landscape at all times. You will be able to play the game either solo or with up to three friends in Co-Op. When you manage to destroy a specific enemy component, be it armor, weapons or sensory equipment, the damage is permanent. Avalanche says guerrilla tactics are your best friend in waging war against the machines, allowing you to "lure, cripple, or destroy" enemies in action-packed sandbox skirmishes.

Trudeau's office released a statement in response, that said "we are focused on everything we accomplished here at the G7 summit". Asked whether he thought the leaders could agree on a joint statement , Trump said, "I think we'll have a joint statement".

Talking about Generation Zero in the PCGN office has quickly brought us to the description "open world Left for Dead with robots", and I think that's not far from what we'll end up with. That means you can come back minutes, hours or even weeks later and the enemy will still bear its battle scars.

Generation Zero comes to PC, Xbox One, and PS4 sometime in 2019.
