What is Generation Zero

In Generation Zero, survival is in itself a victory. Bringing together a vast and beautiful world, precise and compelling action, and a retro sci-fi feel, Generation Zero is a stunning open world survival action game with a deep mystery at its heart.

Developed by Avalanche Studios, creators of the Just Cause series, Mad Max, theHunter: Call of the Wild, and co-developers of RAGE 2; this game marks the first game to be self-published by Avalanche Publishing. 

Key Information

Generation Zero is a first person action survival game set in 1980s Sweden. After an invasion by killer machines, it’s up to you to survive, defeat your enemies, and find out where the machines have come from and why they’re here.

One of the key features of the game is the ability to share the action with up to three friends in seamless co-op. With survival being a key part of the experience, having three more guns at your side is always a welcome move. 

Either with co-op partners or alone, in this FPS open world action survival game you’ll plan your strategy, take down your enemies, loot the world, strive for survival, and investigate the secrets of the apocalypse.

Release Date

Generation Zero was first unveiled shortly prior to E3 2018, and was released on XBOX One, PlayStation 4, and PC on the 26th of March, 2019.


The first trailer, released in 2018, sets the mood for the game whilst also showing off a little of the co-op gameplay:
