Experience 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 you need to fight back while unravelling the mystery of what is really going on. By utilizing battle tested guerrilla tactics, you’ll be able to lure, cripple, or destroy enemies in intense, creative sandbox skirmishes.

Closed Beta week is upon us, so we'd love to give you a little more information about how things will work. Keys will be distributed on/after the published start time and date, but if you miss out you can still have a chance at getting your hands on a key either by following our social media channels or attending our live stream, Thursday at 16:00 CEST (7am PDT) at Twitch or Mixer

Additionally some streamers will have keys to giveaway during the streamer head-start phase of the beta, so be sure to tune in to other streamers on Twitch and Mixer!

The official Generation Zero forums can be found here, and you can now talk to the Dev team, as well as other gamers, on our Discord server here. Those who join our Discord server during the closed beta get access to the special "Scout" title to mark your commitment in being one of the first, so don't delay!

Go it alone, or team-up with up to three of your friends in seamless co-op multiplayer. Collaborate and combine your unique skills to take down enemies, support downed friends by reviving them, and share the loot after an enemy is defeated.

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.

Generation Zero will be coming on PC, PS4 and Xbox One in 2019.
