Recruitment for Zenless Zone Zero’s Tuning Test will end on July 27 at 8:59AM PT /11:59AM ET / 4:59PM BST / 11:59PM CST. It’s notable that the tests will only be available on PC and iOS, similar to Genshin Impact’s original testing phase. Additionally, no payment options will be available and all data and progression will be deleted after the test ends.
Players who are recruited will also be asked to fill in a survey before the Tuning Test deadline. HoYoVerse also asked fans to stay tuned for an official announcement on the game’s test qualification issuance at a later date.
Zenless Zone Zero was announced back in May and will be different from Genshin Impact. This game will be set in a post-apocalyptic metropolitan city called New Eridu, where players take on the role of a Proxy. HoYoVerse aims to deliver a cinematic action-oriented combat system featuring skills and QTE combos. The official website already contains brand-new artwork, the teaser trailer, as well as a few characters players can expect to meet in the action-RPG.
