Yingpei is taking the lessons its learned from Mercenary Ops and applying them to this new game. ZMR will feature everything from its predecessor, along with a revamped UI and new customization features. PvP game modes, which will fit up to 16 players, run the gamut from standard deathmatch to unique new modes, such as Mercs vs. Monsters. Weaponry can be modded, but available arms will vary across PvE and PvP. Knox cited a lightning gun usable in PvE that would chain lightning shots across multiple enemies and noted that such a weapon would be overpowered in a PvP setting.
En Masse and Yingpei are planning substantial support for ZMR, targeting free monthly updates that will add weapons, maps, and game modes. The game is targeting April for a public alpha before starting an early access period in May.
