Zenless Zone Zero features different gameplay not seen in Genshin Impact.

Zenless Zone Zero features a fluid, cinematic, and action-oriented combat system. Players can take control of different units to unleash electrifying skills and unlimited QTE combos, which give them an edge over their foes. 

However, unlike other HoYoverse titles, the game also has roguelike gameplay mechanisms. This means Zenless Zone Zero will have clear differences from Genshin Impact and the turn-based combat seen in Honkai: Star Rail.

New Eridu is the last urban civilization that survived the apocalypse, but its survival is reliant on the technology and valuable resources that are extracted from the Hollows.

In order to save humanity and uncover the mystery behind the supernatural disaster, players must take on the role of a “Proxy” — a special professional who guides people in their exploration of the Hollows.

It’s here where players need to utilize their characters’ skills, claim valuable data, and progress through Zenless Zone Zero’s story.
