Generation Zero announced by Just Cause’s Avalanche Studios

Generation Zero was today announced by Avalanche Studios, described as “an open world action game” that is “set against a backdrop of 1980s Sweden.”

Generation Zero will be self-published by Avalanche, as detailed in a new post on Xbox Wire.

“In short, this means that we call all the shots but also carry all the risks. The creative freedom that follows along with this makes it all worth it though, as our small but brilliant team gets to truly express their passion and develop something unique,” Game Director, Emil Kraftling, said.

“That is what Generation Zero is: the freedom to approach any situation with whatever means available to you and to utilize your and your team’s creativity to maximum effect,” Kraftling continued.

“There is no right way, only your way, and our goal is to ensure that no two fights play out the same. Be it scars from a previous encounter, new skills, environmental opportunities, time of day or what weapons you are carrying, you never know how a situation will play out. All that’s important is that you stay alive.”

Generation Zero will allow up to 4-player co-op in a world “where stealth elements and suspenseful exploration of a beautiful but hostile world are mixed with adrenaline-pumping explosive combat against an invading army of deadly machines.”

We’ll have more on Generation Zero as its announced, likely over next week at E3 2018.

Generation Zero heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 in 2019.
