Swedish games developer Avalanche Studios has revealed their new project Generation Zero. This is just the latest in a series of announcements surrounding Avalanche, the most recent being that it has been acquired by one of the world's oldest film companies and that it is now co-developing Rage 2 alongside id Software. "We can't wait to bring the game's tense open-world exploration and adrenaline pumping tactical action to players everywhere".

As well as a look at the game's open world, and a listen to its dynamic 80s soundtrack.

1-4 Players. Seamless Multiplayer. Strategizing is key, and guerilla tactics encouraged to "lure, cripple, or destroy enemies in intense, creative sandbox skirmishes". The new FPS title will be heading to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC sometime in 2019. Dropping players into a science fiction twist on 1989 Sweden, you can either go it alone or team up in four player co-op to take on a robotic invasion force.

As of around Friday morning, the full album is now available on some streaming platforms, including Apple Music and Tidal . And that's not even including the guests featured on the actual recording.

Last but not least, all enemies are persistently simulated in the world, and roam the landscape with intent and objective. Collaborate and combine your unique skills to take down enemies, support downed friends by reviving them, and share the loot after an enemy is defeated.

Chances are good that Avalanche will have more to say about Generation Zero during next week's E3 event. If a specific area of a machine is damaged, the damage will be permanent, meaning if you happen to save the rest of your fight for another day, you can encounter the same machine with lasting battle scars at a later date. And since the robots are roaming the landscape looking for you, it might not be too long before you run into them again.
