Slave Zero X will be released on February 21, 2024 from developer Poppy Works and publisher Ziggurat Interactive. Slave Zero X is a prequel to Slave Zero, a game that came out back in 1999 for the Sega Dreamcast.

Slave Zero X will be out in February for a bunch of platforms such as the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Slave Zero X will have you playing as Shou after they merge "with a stolen Slave Unit Prototype, becoming a furious Devil in pursuit of killing a false God." Shou will wage a war against the tyrannical SovKhang, "the violent dictator who rules Megacity S1-9 with fists of iron and flesh."

Ziggurat says that this game will appeal to character action games like Devil May Cry, Strider, and Guilty Gear. Players will get to string together big combos and slice and dice their way through "genetically enhanced biopunk opponents - all to the tune of a gnarly synth soundtrack."
