The urban fantasy world

Zenless Zone Zero is a brand-new urban fantasy action-RPG by HoYoverse. In the story, contemporary civilization has been destroyed by a supernatural disaster known as the Hollows. New Eridu, the last urban civilization that survived the apocalypse, managed to thrive by acquiring the technology to extract valuable resources out of the Hollows. However, there are perilous monsters roaming within the Hollows and only a special kind of people who contain resistance to Hollow corruption called Agents are able to go inside. Players in the game will take on the role of a Proxy — a professional who can guide agents in their exploration of Hollows.

The game’s main city, New Eridu, is a living, breathing location with its own lore and mysteries. Hospitality, openness, and freedom are the foundations of the city and where disaster refugees, the displaced, and survivors from other settlements can find a home. From the lore-rich settlers to the culturally diverse neighborhoods, each area in New Eridu has its own story waiting to unfold. Players will encounter characters from various walks of life, ranging from Asha who runs the Arcade God Finger to the welcoming Tin Master at the Coff Café. These interactions are not just passing encounters, they weave into the larger narrative, making decisions and interactions pivotal.

Navigator of the perilous Hollows

Navigating the Hollows is no simple feat. In this post-disaster world where much of humanity has fallen, the mysteries within the Hollows are complex and unpredictable. One area might hold hidden treasures and resources, while the next could be teeming with menacing monsters and formidable bosses. The ever-present corruptive force of the Hollows also poses a serious threat, making the guidance of Proxies crucial.

As a player, you step into the shoes of a Proxy, a unique job capable of navigating the dangerous Hollows. Taking control of Belle or Wise, the innovative Hollow Deep Dive (H.D.D.) system turns your television into the Hollow’s maze, each area holding its own secrets waiting to be uncovered. Beyond the thrill of exploration, it’s crucial to engage with New Eridu’s diverse inhabitants, forging connections that enrich your journey. And during your free time, don’t forget to manage your video store to earn bonuses.
