Official beta testing for Zenless Zone Zero, the next action role-playing game from Genshin Impact creator HoYoverse, has begun.
The creator of the immensely popular role-playing game Genshin Impact, HoYoverse, is getting closer to perhaps becoming one of the most well-known and well-liked video game producers worldwide. Now, Zenless Zone Zero, a brand-new ARPG created by Hoyoverse, is another step to continue their journey to the peak.
The creators of this game made references to it in 2021 and since then there hasn’t been much news on Zenless Zone Zero. That is, until now! Recent announcements have provided us with tidbits of information on the close beta sign-ups, gameplay, setting, and colorful cast of characters. So, here’s everything that is there to know about this game.
Zenless Zone Zero Beta Test
HoYoverse recently shared a new trailer titled “Don’t Get Hit on Your Second Commission~,” marking the launch of a beta testing phase for Zenless Zone Zero. Dubbed an “Equalizing Test” by HoYoverse, this test commenced on a Thursday evening without a specified end date.
In line with the beta test, HoYoverse has arranged an official community event, granting an additional 10 slots for the ongoing CBT2 Equalizing Test. Remember that the event will continue to stream live through November 27, 2023, at 11:00 UTC + 8. The winners will be declared at 12:00 UTC + 8 on November 28, 2023.
Readers must follow the on-screen directions at the Gleam event site in order to participate. To enter the event, simply fill out the survey and include your email address, full name, and HoYoverse user ID.
What would be included in the beta test was not confirmed in the trailer. However, the most recent video for Zenless Zone Zero did feature a number of anticipated playable characters, such as Anton Ivanov and Koleda Belobog.
In addition to its extravagant atmosphere and dazzling gameplay, players have already detected some subtly referenced previous HoYoverse games. The aforementioned Koleda, one of the playable characters, has the same last name as the first city that players can explore in Honkai: Star Rail.

Zenless Zone Zero Platforms
Again, our current knowledge of this topic is quite restricted. PC and iOS users will be able to play Zenless Zone Zero. It is unclear, though, if this game will also be released for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PS5.
Zenless Zone Zero Gameplay
We know a lot of details regarding how this game is played. Players will encounter a smooth, dramatic, action-packed combat system in Zenless Zone Zero. They will have a minor advantage over their fighters because they will be able to control many units, unleash deadly skills, and use an endless number of QTE combinations on their opponents.
A roguelike gameplay mechanic is one way that this game differs from all the other HoYoverse games. Thus, you should anticipate some differences between Zenless Zone Zero and Genshin Impact.
Zenless Zone Zero Storyline
In Zenless Zone Zero, humanity is forced to flee the catastrophic aftermath of the supernatural disaster known as the “Hollows,” which has all but wiped out the human race. The setting is a post-apocalyptic future.
An undesirable byproduct of this paranormal occurrence is called the Ethereals. These beasts are enigmatic and inhabit the universes that the Hollows have created. The only hub of urban civilization that made it through this catastrophe is New Eridu. Ironically, the degree to which it survives relies on how much technology and material can be taken out of the Hollows.
As the player, you will have to assume the position of a “Proxy,” a unique expert who leads individuals who wish to find out more about Hollows. Utilizing the character’s abilities, obtaining important information, and advancing the story of Zenless Zone Zero are all required here.
Zenless Zone Zero Trailers
The reveal trailer for Zenless Zone Zero debuted on May 13, 2022, on the game’s official teaser website. The trailer showcased New Eridu, humanity’s last haven after the “Hollow” catastrophe. And here’s where the fun starts—into the enigmatic streets. Numerous Zenless Zone Zero characters that are occupied by enigmatic monsters are visible to us.
In 2023, the new HoYoverse aims to build on the enormous success that the first miHoYo has already experienced. After the official launch of the game, Honkai: Star Rail, its enthusiastic fan base downloaded the game over 20 million times in just one day. Furina, who just joined Genshin Impact’s roster, has become one of the game’s highest-grossing gacha banners. Moreover, the company has also enjoyed success with its newest characters.
So, sure the company has high stakes. And with its distinct visuals and stylish action, Zenless Zone Zero is sure to become a beloved addition to HoYoverse’s expanding library of games.
That’s all the current information available about Zenless Zone Zero. Keep an eye out for its release!
