The open-world action game has come a long way since release.

When Generation Zero launched four years back, it sure left a lot to be desired. The game felt mechanically clunky and there were a myriad of other issues that just left a bit of a sour taste in a lot of players' mouths. Since that release, developer Systemic Reaction has released numerous updates, fixes, and quite a bit of additional content (some free, some paid) that have pushed the game to sitting at a comfy "Mostly Positive" rating on Steam.

Generation Zero is an open-world stealth-action game that takes place in an alternate-history Sweden where man has gone to war with machines. You can play the game solo or team up with some friends for open-world action co-op.

In a new developer diary, Systemic Reaction says that even though the game has turned 4, there are still several more years to come.

"Starting as a small team within Avalanche Studios, we couldn’t be more grateful to our players for making Generation Zero what it is today," said Emil Kraftling, Creative Director at Systemic Reaction. "It’s a testament to the community that the game is more popular than ever in 2023, and we’re excited to continue building the game in the years to come!"
Generation Zero is available on PC through Steam and the Microsoft Store. It's also available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and through Game Pass.
