Hi everyone, I’m here to talk about our exciting new expansion, Alpine Unrest. Taking place a month after the events of the original game, it unlocks a new island off the east coast with lots of new content for you to explore.
This is Generation Zero
First, a quick breakdown of the game for those of you who may be new: Generation Zero is an atmospheric first-person guerrilla action game set in an alternative 1980s Sweden, in a region called Östertörn.
The population of this peaceful rural setting vanished overnight, replaced by hostile machines who seem intent on killing anyone they meet. You set out into the vast open world, stumbling upon villages, bunkers, military installations and more, as you seek to uncover where these machines came from. During your travels, you find plenty of tools to help you in your encounters with this new enemy, including equipment to distract them and weapons to try your best to take them down. Additionally you have various skill trees that allow you to cater your abilities to better handle dangerous situations, and outfits to create your ultimate 80s fighter. If you ever feel that you need backup, you can always invite 1-3 friends to join you in your efforts.
The Island of Himfjäll
A month has passed since the events of the main game, and your search has led you to Himfjäll, an island off the east coast of Östertörn. Formerly a popular vacation spot for its towns, cafés, shops, and ski slopes, the island now stands abandoned, with only machines patrolling the area. Yet there might be more to this island than initially meets the eye.
The Search is Over
At the massive ski hotel Björntunet, you’ll find something invaluable – a small community of survivors who have managed to stay alive despite chaos outside. Their situation is far from good though, as the enemy is constantly on the lookout, making it next to impossible to leave their hotel hideout. Perhaps together though, you might be able to avoid them and find more answers.
Apocalypse Class Machines
While the situation on Himfjäll is slightly more positive given the addition of new allies, you’ve unfortunately encountered a new tier of machines. Much deadlier than their counterparts you have stumbled upon in the past, they seem designed to hunt down those who are left, overpowering any who try to fight back. Their weapons are horrible creations, including things like biochemical machine guns and flamethrowers. Even the mainland of Östertörn has become more unsafe, as these machines have started making their way there. Hopefully the new machine guns you’ve found during your exploration will be enough to take them down.
We’re excited to share this experience with you as we start expanding on the world of Generation Zero. We hope that you enjoy where things are headed, both with the story and the game itself. A lot has happened since launch and this expansion is a significant update based on the feedback that has come in along the way. We look forward to hearing about your time in Himfjäll!
