STOCKHOLM Nov. 30, 2021 — Systemic Reaction has released the open-world stealth-action game Generation Zero on Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One and PC. Xbox Game Pass subscribers can download the title today for free and play solo or with up to three friends in a war against sinister machines in an alternate-history Sweden.

Xbox Game Pass Trailer:

And it’s the perfect time to dive in: the free “Resistance” content update (previously launched on PC and PlayStation®4) is now available for all players on Xbox One, delivering new stories and dangers and bringing content parity across all platforms. “Resistance” jumps the game forward from 1989 to 1990, introducing exciting new base-building systems and world revamps, including:

  • Base-Building & Defense: Secure your own unique outpost, customize it as you see fit, and protect it from waves of invading machines in new home base defense missions.
  • New World Revamps: Extensive redesign of the forest region, adding more fun surprises and environmental storytelling to explore.
  • New Crafting Items: Discover and craft new consumable items with each successful defense of your base.
  • Bonus Challenge Tree: Take on new challenges focused on base building.

Generation Zero is currently in its third year of ongoing content development. More than one million players have experienced the game since launch, with numerous updates and two story-driven expansions (“Alpine Unrest” and “FNIX Rising”) continuing to drive the adventure. Year 3 takes the game in exciting new directions that put players on the front line of the battle against the machines, with a breadth of new features and content coming in the future.
