HoYoverse's Next Huge Gacha Zenless Zone Zero Launches 4th July on PS5 1

Zenless Zone Zero, the urban fantasy gacha game from Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail developer HoYoverse, will officially deploy day-and-date on PS5, from 4th July. In addition to Sony’s new-gen system, the vibrant title will also be available on PC and mobile, and there’ll be cross-save between all systems. Crucially, PlayStation players will not be made to wait.

A simultaneous PS5 launch was always likely after a relatively successful closed PlayStation beta earlier in the month. We were lucky enough to participate in the pre-release test, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time with the title. The art style is off-the-charts, and the gameplay – which sees you composing teams of up to three – is a lot denser than HoYoverse’s other games.

This release date means the Chinese developer will now be deploying one major update for each of its three titles every two weeks, effectively locking players in a loop of back-to-back events. It’s a bold strategy from the studio that could potentially consume all of this author’s time. If you’re interested in playing the game, you’ll probably want to pre-register, as once the game achieves 40 million all players will receive 20 free pulls to get them started.
