ShackStream: Generation Zero

We take a look at the new co-op shooter from the folks at Avalanche.


I’m not gonna lie to you guys. I don’t know anything about Sweden other than it is somewhere in Europe and they export ready-to-assemble furniture. I first saw Generation Zero at last year’s E3 and heard that it was being made in Sweden. Because I’m an idiot, I assumed that the game was a legitimate historical account of the way things are in the country.

Sweden was conquered by robots sometime in the near past and other Scandinavian countries like Norway and Italy are sending in co-op parties to hunt down the robots and sweet loot. At least I assume this is what the game is about. Who knows? After today’s ShackStream, you’ll know, because we are gonna give this one a spin.

Make yourself available for the fun around 3:15 PM EDT (12:15 PM PDT) on the Official Shacknews Twitch Channel.
