Joining the HoYoverse library of games in the near future is urban fantasy ARPG Zenless Zone Zero, currently in development for the PC, iOS and Android platforms. Following a previous closed beta test, the development team are opening up the tests to more gamers, and have today confirmed that the game’s second closed beta test, also known as the ‘Equalizing Test’ is now open for registration. For returning players, they can look forward to a number of gameplay amendments and content updates – including new stories and explorable areas, more playable characters, re-designed combat mechanics, as well as a thoroughly overhauled city with new urban gameplay systems.
In Zenless Zone Zero’s story, contemporary civilization has been destroyed by a supernatural disaster known as the Hollows. Amidst this overwhelming calamity, the city of New Eridu has risen against the odds by harnessing the technology and resources necessary to combat the Hollow disaster, gradually evolving into the final beacon of modern civilization. Players will take on the role of a Proxy — a professional specialized in guiding people in their exploration of Hollows, and embark on an adventure with a group of unique companions to conquer unknown enemies and unravel the mysteries behind New Eridu.
The game sets out to provide a standalone IP and a mixed narrative story-telling. In its latest beta, players will be able to explore a new story chapter that centers on Belobog Heavy Industries — one of the major factions in the game. Thanks to a series of immersive urban gameplay mechanics added to the upcoming beta, players will be able to probe into the Proxy Network known as Inter-Knot and take unusual commissions or play arcade games with friends, pet loveable animals, and roam around the vibrant Sixth Street.
In the upcoming closed beta, the city of New Eridu will be further revamped with a full-scale visual update based on the previous beta. The game’s track list is also described as being more modern, vibrant, and groovy. In addition, three new characters, each with their unique background and charm, will be coming to New Eridu to team up with players.
