Kill deadly tiny and huge robots either co-operatively, or alone, in a mysterious open world set in late 1980's Sweden:
Welcome to 1980’s Sweden. The local population has gone missing, and machines of unknown origin roam the streets. Explore this vast open world to unravel the mystery of the invaders, perfect your fighting strategies and prepare to strike back. In Generation Zero, living is winning.

Survive in a Hostile Open World: Take on missions and challenges throughout the open world to unravel more of the mystery, while scavenging for weapons and supplies to help you stay alive


Get Ready. Then Fight Back: Tactically combine weapons, skills and equipment, to lure, cripple, and destroy your enemies.

1-4 Player Seamless Multiplayer: Play alone, or team-up with up to three friends as you collaborate and combine your unique skills to take down enemies.

Stealth and Strategy. Co-Operate to Live: Some enemies are too powerful to attack head-on, which is when you should adopt stealth tactics by moving silently, exploiting the enemy’s senses and using the environment to your advantage.

1980’s Nostalgia: Among the loot, you will find outfits and hairstyles to recreate your favorite 1980s style to take on the machines in style.
Any one else picked this up and interested in teaming up? It's on PC, PS4 and XB1 (the latter is what I'm going to be playing it on).
An Update from the GZ Team
Published on 2019-03-28

Hello everyone, and welcome to the world of Generation Zero.

Our team is excited to invite you into our home, the backyards and beautiful forests of 1980’s Sweden. While we have a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences within our team, we all hope to bring you a taste of where we currently live - albeit in an alternate 1980’s setting. This is when many of us grew up, at the start of the Information Age, alongside radical threads and big hair. For those of us who didn’t grow up in the 80’s, the sense of wonder and imagination while playing outside is still a universally strong, relatable memory.

We hope that you find yourself able to jump back into the past with us, into this world of exploration and mayhem. Whether your time is spent unraveling the mystery behind the Machines or finding fun and interesting ways to destroy them; Whether you prefer to play with a full crew of friends or solo, we know you’ll find your ideal way to play.

What we want you to know is this: the Generation Zero team is passionately committed to making this world bigger, better, and even more exciting. With a mix of both free and paid content, you can expect intense new PvE challenges, more ways to modify your loadout and style of play, terrifying updates to enemies, expansions to the story, and of course bigger hair and even more radical threads.

But for now most of our focus is on collecting information and prioritizing/fixing the bug reports from all of you. We’ve made good progress so far via two PC hotfixes and one Xbox patch deployed since launch, with further updates coming in the future.

We’ve also heard several common points of feedback that the community agrees on so far, and we’re already digging into how to make improvements - such as machine behavior or clearer co-op progression. Outside of the above-mentioned bug fixes and future content that we’ve planned, we aim to incorporate community feedback into our plans so that we can make the improvements you want to see.

So please, keep talking to us and let us hear from you about what you’d like to see Generation Zero do next. We’re on this journey together, and remember...

    I was watching a Twitch streamer play this one. I'm always on the lookout for co-op experiences, and this one looked promising. Apparently, though, the co-op stuff is really buggy and could use a little more time having all the issues ironed out. When I asked if the streamer would recommend it, the exact response was "If you plan to play it solo,'s feckin' awesome! If it's specifically to play with others, though? Maybe hold off."

    So, from the sounds of things, I'm gonna be waiting for Generation One.

    EDIT - I should mention, the streamer was playing on PC.
