Is Zenless Zone Zero Open World

ZZZ, or Zenless Zone Zero, will be the newest game by HoYoverse, the chinese developer behind the giants Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail, that is set to launch sometime in 2024.

Given HoYoverse’s record with making amazing open world games, players are wondering if they will be taking the same approach with Zenless Zone Zero.

In this article we’ll go over all you need to know about whether Zenless Zone Zero will be open world or not.

Is Zenless Zone Zero Open World?


The short answer to that is, no!

ZZZ isn’t a traditional open world game like Genshin Impact, or Wuthering Waves. Zenless Zone Zero is an instance based game similar to games like Dungeon Fighter Online, Soulworker, Honkai Impact 3rd.

In ZZZ you will have the opportunity to explore a hub town that will feature a ton of NPCs which will give you quests, have you interact with them to receive various items and others. 

However, you will not be able to explore the world just as you do in Genshin Impact.

Rather in Zenless Zone Zero you are sent out on missions that transport you to different locations where you can use the characters that you have, just like other instance based games.



Will Zenless Zone Zero Have an Open World In the Future?


As of now there is no mention of an open world mode being added to ZZZ, however, given that Honkai Impact 3rd originally started as an instance based game and later on added several open world areas, we might see an open world mode being added to Zenless Zone Zero.

However, whether that will happen or not is something only HoYoverse knows and highly dependent on whether they will want to take the game in this direction or not.

Another thing that we can expect is that we see bigger, open world like zones in the form of events, however, that too will only be revealed after the game’s launch later this year.
