Zenless Zone Zero is developed by HoYoverse, the creator of Honkai Star Rail and Genshin Impact. Both RPGs are wildly popular in the gacha community, and if you’re wondering if Zenless Zone Zero will follow a similar path, here’s everything to know about whether it is a free-to-play or gacha game.

Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail are two of HoYoverse’s biggest gacha games, mostly because they offer much more than just addictive gacha mechanics. You can not only unlock a wide range of characters and weapons but also make the most of them in events, open-world challenges, domains, and other things.

The success of Genshin Impact and Honkai Star Rail explains why fans can’t wait for HoYoverse to drop Zenless Zone Zero. From what we know so far, it will have an urban setting and the combat will be different from any of the developer’s other titles.

Zenless Zone Zero will differ from HSR and Genshin Impact in many ways but is being free-to-play and gacha one of them? Here’s everything to know.

Is Zenless Zone Zero free-to-play?

Yes, Zenless Zone Zero will be released as a free-to-play title. This isn’t surprising at all, as HoYoverse has a history of releasing F2P games like Genshin Impact and HSR and still making a fortune through micro-transactions.

Zenless Zone Zero has a roster of playable characters as well and unlocking them will require players to either grind tirelessly for hours or simply purchase the game’s currency through money. Over 10 playable characters from different factions have been confirmed so far, and the developers will most likely release many more through post-launch updates.

Is Zenless Zone Zero a gacha game?

Yes, Zenless Zone Zero is a gacha game in which you’ll spend currency on banners that grant high-rarity items based on your luck. Of course, there will be a pity system like Genshin and HSR to keep things fair but we don’t have a lot of information on those mechanics for now.

Well, this was everything to know about the free-to-play and gacha status of Zenless Zone Zero. We’ll update this space with the latest information so make sure to bookmark it and check back often.
