Zenless Zero Zone is a brand-new game from Hoyoverse, the company that brought to us Genshin Impact. Set in a post-apocalyptic metropolitan city. It features an engaging story with a futuristic art design and hectic action sequences.
The story takes place in the near future, where mysterious natural disasters known as Hollows have occurred. From the disaster, New Eridu emerged, a city where inhabitants learned to master the technology to coexist with the Hollows.
Here is everything we know about Zenless Zone Zero, including info on its closed beta, release date, gameplay, characters, and more.

Zenless Zone Zero Characters
Players in the game take the role of a Proxy, a special professional who works like a tour guide for people interested in the Hollows.
Hollows are Natural disasters with destructive properties but are also warp zones in which Proxies can have dual identities - one for their life outside Hollows and one for within.
Proxies work in teams known as Odd-Job Agencies. So far we know the identity of the Gentle House aka the Cunning Hares, whose members are:
- The sisters Demara
- Anby (White Hair)
- Nicole (Pink Hair)
- Billy Kid
Belle and Wise
Similar to Genshin Impact, it seems the story will be told from the perspective of two main characters, Belle and Wise.
The siblings run a game store called the Random Game Store. Belle is a young, easy-going girl and wise is a gentle and reserved young man.
They also run a Proxy Agency called Phaeton, known for their unique guidance technology and high rate of successful commissions.
These siblings will have a companion, a creature that looks like a robotic rabbit wearing a scarf and the number 01.
These robotic creatures are called Bangboo devices, originally created to evacuate people from the Hollows. Now they assist new citizens in adapting to New Eridu.
