Zenless Zone Zero shows off some combat and world exploration in latest trailer

HoYoverse, the legendary developers of the incredibly popular Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact, released a brand new trailer for the upcoming fully original ARPG; Zenless Zone Zero. After a collection of teases and a few trailers, we’ve finally got our hands on some real beefy gameplay alongside a look at the game’s hub world and even a boss battle.

Zenless Zone Zero is HoYoverse’s first non-Impact related title and seems to be fully separate from that series, where all of their other titles are all loosely connected in one way or another. Instead of the somewhat dramatic and intense vibes that most of their games have, Zenless Zone Zero seems to be rocking a real punk attitude, with colourful characters and a generally more fun vibe.

This trailer shows off a look at the game’s main setting, New Eridu, where the player character can be seen exploring the streets as they speak to various NPCs and vendors. Of course, they also stop to pet a few of the adorable little pets that are scattered across the city too.

This is then followed up with a pretty solid look at the game’s combat, which seems to take a lot more from the Honkai series than anything else. It’s fast, frantic and full of the player jumping from enemy to enemy. It does, however, still have that classic party-swapping mechanic that the HoYoverse games have always kept. This little snippet shows that each character you’ll be able to play is super different from one another, and each has a deep kit of abilities that you’ll be utilizing to do maximum damage.

Afterwards, there’s a small bit of a glance at a boss fight before more quest interactions with NPCs. All in all, this trailer gave us a good look at the combat system along with the inner workings of New Eridu and its inhabitants, so there’s plenty of information and good-looking material here.

Zenless Zone Zero is set up to take the world by storm once it finally launches, though that date remains unknown for now. Until then, you can head over to the official website for more information or follow the official Twitter account for any updates!
