Zenless Zone Zero just got a surprise release date. The upcoming action RPG will launch on July 4 for PlayStation 5, PC, Android and iOS.

Revealed at Summer Game Fest 2022, Zenless Zone Zero is the latest game from Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail studio Mihoyo. Like its previous titles, it’s a stylish free-to-play RPG built with mobile in mind. This one is a postapocalyptic sci-fi game set in New Eridu, the last remaining city following a series of supernatural disasters. The game has been in closed beta for a bit now, but that has come to an end as the studio gets ready for its summer release.

What’s most notable here is that the game will simultaneously launch across mobile devices, as well as PC and PS5. Previous Mihoyo games have launched first on mobile before coming to consoles later. The RPG will feature crossplay and cross-progression across platforms at launch.

There’s a catch for PC players. Zenless Zone Zero will only be available through the Epic Games Store and will not be available on Steam. Players can preregister on the platform now, as well as the iOS App Store, Google Play, and the PlayStation Store.

Mihoyo is rolling out several freebies for players who jump in at launch. Players will get Corin, one of the game’s playable agents, as well as 20 Master Tapes, the currency used to summon rare heroes. Players can also grab 30,000 Dennies and a currency called Boopons.

Zenless Zone Zero launches for free on July 4 for PS5, PC, iOS, and Android..

Free-to-play action RPG Genshin Impact is headed to Epic Games Store on June 9, as revealed by the game's official Twitter account today. It was previously already available on PC via the Genshin Impact website, as well as mobile devices, PS4, and PS5.

Epic Games Store users will get a "special gift" by using the redemption code GenshinEpic, as an incentive to hop aboard on that platform. This Epic version will feature cross-play, so players will be able to play with one another regardless of platform.

5 ways Genshin Impact is better than Breath of the Wild
5ways genshin impact is better than breath of the wild dragon

A free-to-play game has surprised players with not only how much it feels (cough) inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but how good it actually is. Genshin Impact, from Chinese developer miHoYo, feels like it copied Breath of the Wild's source code and then went to town.

It features an open world that is designed to be explored at your leisure. You can climb anywhere or float down from an outcrop using a glider. It features camps of enemies scattered all over the map, as well as puzzles to stumble across and shrines to uncover. It even has a lot of the same musical cues, with one composition I heard during my playtime almost note-for-note identical to one found in BOTW.

A game that’s just about clicking a banana is going viral on Steam

A new game is rising on the Steam most-played charts, and it's not a new battle royale or Call of Duty game. It's a free-to-play clicker game where all you do is click an illustration of a banana.

At the time of this writing, Banana has around 434,000 concurrent players, but it peaked in the past 24 hours at around 480,000. Over the course of the day, it's risen in the charts above Apex Legends, PUBG: Battlegrounds, and Elden Ring, which are all regularly at the top of the Steam player charts. All of this information comes from SteamDB, a third-party site that tracks Steam data.
