Zenless Zone Zero Comes Out Tomorrow: Here's What You Need to Know

HoYoverse’s latest gacha role-playing game, Zenless Zone Zero, is launching tomorrow. The game is the latest from the studio that brought gamers Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail

Since the game has 50 million people pre-registered to play, it’s looking like HoYoverse has another bit hit on their hands. Players who are interested can prepare while waiting the final day before the game releases. 

Zenless Zone Zero is set to launch officially on July 4 at 10 a.m. (UTC+8). That translates to 7 p.m. PT and 10 p.m. ET. Until that time, players are able to download the game on supported platforms and get ready for launch. The game is available for Android, iOS, PlayStation 5 and PC

Once the servers go live, you’ll be able to immediately jump in and start playing the game if you preloaded the assets. HoYoverse has a pretty good track record with game launches, so everything should happen on time. However, maintenance on a brand new game launch can sometimes run over, so delays could potentially happen. 

It’s a long time coming for fans of HoYoverse games. The Singaporean games developer first announced the game in May 2022 and teased it again at The Game Awards 2023. It wasn’t until the end of May 2024 when the game received its official launch date. It’s also launching on all supported platforms simultaneously. Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Real started on some platforms and eventually migrated to others. 

How do I preload Zenless Zone Zero?

The game is currently available for download on all supported platforms. If you launch the game before its release date, it’ll download the additional assets the game needs to run. This saves you time by not needing to download it right as the servers go live. Here’s how to do it on each platform. 


PC players can download the game from HoYoPlay, HoYoverse’s game launcher. Once installed, you simply need to open the game, follow the instructions and wait for the assets to download. You will need to create a HoYoverse account if you don’t have one already. The game is not available on Steam or other game store services. 

PlayStation 5

PlayStation 5 players can go to the PlayStation Store and pickup the Zenless Zone Zero Pre-Order Bundle. Unlike the other platforms, the bundle costs players $9.99 but you’ll get various in-game items and currency that the other platforms won’t have. In any case, once the bundle is purchased, you should be able to pre-download the game on your PlayStation 5 console. 

For those having trouble, you should be able to go to Library > Purchased and then find the Zenless Zone Zero pre-order available for download there. 


Zenless Zone Zero is on the Google Play Store where it can be downloaded. Once the game is installed, you only need to open the app. It’ll ask you to sign in with your HoYoverse account or create an account if you don’t have one yet. Once logged in, the game will download the assets. 


You’ll need to download the game from the Apple App Store. From there, it’s the same process as Android. Open the game, log into or create a HoYoverse account and wait for the assets to download.
