Generation Zero update 1.27 is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. According to the official Generation Zero 1.27 changelog, the latest update added new features, various gameplay changes, and bug fixes. Apart from this, Generation Zero version 1.27 also includes stability and performance improvements.
Crafting – Players can now craft things within the world. The game dev will continue to add elements to this feature as time goes on. The last update also introducing the first iteration of the Crafting system – adding bonus stats to any of your apparel. Now you can apply a bonus to your favorite outfit so you can be both stylish and combat ready. We’ve created a handful of potential bonuses for your clothing, including explosive damage resistance or a noise reduction bonus.
You’ll need the schematics to learn how to craft these improvements, as well as the proper materials, which can all be found throughout the world. You’ll find them inside houses, in containers, or dropped from the machines. Recycling your old equipment is also another great way to get some crafting materials.
Alongside Crafting we’ve taken the opportunity to give the player inventory a bit of a facelift. There was a lot of feedback around this one in various forms and something we spent a bit of time thinking about how to approach. In the end we looked for something that would be more convenient to use, easier to understand, and less technically complicated – something that we think people will be used to and appreciate.
Going forward players will now have lists of items in categories and your inventory will only be limited by item weight. No longer by number of items! Additionally we’ve done away with the stack limitations so you more easily manage all of the items you have! Just like with Crafting, this is new to you all and we’re very much open to your feedback on how it’s working.
Continued World Revamp
As part of our ongoing work to make the world feel more alive we’ve taken another pass at the beginning Archipelago region and given it quite the significant update. You’ll see more named locations, more interesting “world scenes”, and more variety in the houses. This is just the start of how we want to continue to revamp parts of the world to make each region feel more distinct and play into a larger narrative. Something that we hope pulls you into the experience even more and excites you to keep exploring.
We all know that there are plenty of different types of players out there, and we want to make sure we give our players options when it comes to their experience with Generation Zero. Since not everyone plays games for the same reasons, or in the same way, we decided to give players the option to choose the level of difficulty they want to face in the game.
For example some players like to play for the challenge of overcoming odds that are stacked against them, but other players prefer to explore the world we’ve built and experience it without combat getting in the way of that journey. With that in mind, we created options around not only the difficulty level, but also if you want the difficulty to scale if more players join your game. We feel that more options make for a better experience for you, whether you’re going it alone or with friends!
From today you’ll see 3 difficulty options for you to choose from, with the Skirmish difficulty being the equivalent to the game’s status prior to this update. The other two difficulties will either increase the combat challenge (Guerrilla) or allow for more focus on the story over combat (Adventure). Let us know how they feel!
Previously, a big January update was released with new changes and quality of life improvements. Unfortunately, since the last update, some players are still experiencing a number of issues when trying to play the game. Today’s Generation Zero 1.27 is expected to fix these issues.
