The games of Avalanche Studios have so far been known for attractively staged, loud and cracking action. Generation Zero remains true to this foundation but relies on optional cooperative play, less battles and a mysterious story. Before embarking on your journey, you can adapt your character to your tastes. You then find yourself on a narrow stretch of coast in Sweden at the end of the 80s. All humans have disappeared and strange, as well as highly aggressive robots roam the landscape and attack everything they see in front of their sensors. What has happened? It is up to you to find out - either alone or with up to three other survivors. Follow the hints, discover the next location and continue. Of course, you can also ignore these guided mission sequences and explore the spacious world at your own discretion in the typical Avalanche tradition.
