Good day, Survivors!

Apologies in advance if my pun-game isn’t as on point as it usually is, I definitely didn’t just start writing this report at 3:30pm on a friday because I’ve been buried neck-deep in preparations for the 5th anniversary event. We have so many things going on this month, let me remind you of a few things and also give you a small outlook on what to expect in the time leading up to and during the anniversary event!

Help us playtest a future project

We’ve started construction on a new game (no, it’s not GZ2) and we’re looking for people to help us test a super early concept so we can keep working on it with the Community right by our side.
That’s why we’re organizing several rounds of playtests taking place during the next few weeks. If you’re interested, are playing on Steam, and are over 18 years old (You’ll have to sign an NDA), please join this Discord server and read the instructions on how to sign up!

Steam Spring sale ongoing!

My boss told me to include this in the report so here we go: Something something get your friends in the game at 80% discount, yadda yadda both Story DLCs currently cost like 2$, go check out the Steam page to see the other amazing discounts. Here’s the link that you will please click because it will make my manager very happy:

5th anniversary event

On March 26th, it will have been exactly 5 years since Generation Zero was released into the wild. It’s been a crazy journey with lots of ups and downs, a journey that I was fortunate enough to experience from the very beginning until now!
We have a lot planned to celebrate this important milestone. There will be lots of giveaways during the whole week, a special livestream on the day, and many little tributes to everyone who helped bring us this far (including you). I highly encourage you to follow our social media so you don’t miss out on any of the goodies.

The next Update

The 31st patch for GZ is being finished as we speak. This means we’re ironing out the last issues and then we’ll submit it to the different platforms for certification before we can release it. Sadly I can’t yet say when exactly it’ll be released, but I can say that it’s called the Community Requests Update. As the name suggests, it will consist of several features and quality of life improvements that many of you have been asking for (some of them have been requested for a long time!) as well as many bug fixes.
I don’t want to spoil any of the features yet (if you read the last Resistance Report and have been following our different channels, you’ll have seen a couple of hints already), but here are some bug fixes I’d like to highlight:

  • “Clicking” sounds heard when near machines that are fighting each other
  • Companions teleporting in front of moving vehicles and crashing them
  • Unlimited 4C AG4 drops from Harvesters after doing “An Invitation”
  • Displayed inventory weight being inconsistent when looting
  • Tons of “random” crash fixes (and some not so random ones)

All of these issues and more will be fixed in this update. If any of their symptoms still persist, please let us know ASAP so we can look into smiting them once and for all.

Thank you for reading! This edition’s Swiss German Word is:
Chätschä (kind of like the english word “catch” but try to stretch out the c sound and append another a). It means to chew! A variation of this is “choie” (same elongated c sound).

Talk to you soon!
