New Dawn Update - Patch Notes

Today marks the third update for Generation Zero so far this year! This time around we’re focused on polishing the early game a bit more for our new players, as well as giving a new option for veteran players to experiment more with their character builds.

New Dawn - NPCs

With this update, we added some new NPCs to the beginning of the game. These revamped missions will introduce two new characters to the world of Östertörn. You’ll find Therese quite early in the first mission(s) to help guide you through your understanding of the systems of Generation Zero through given objectives, and reveal a bit more perspective on how an earlier survivor might have experienced the first wave of machine attacks.

Pontus will make a quick cameo in your journey through the Archipelago as well. He will be ready to help you through some of the first missions in the bunkers of Östertörn.

Skill Respec & Player Progression

Skill Respec has also arrived! Players can finally continue to iterate and experiment with their character builds. You will have to progress a bit in-game before you’re able to use this new feature, as you’ll have to collect 5 Uranium to do so. These can be found around Östertörn through various activities, you can also earn 5 Uranium for every 5 player levels up to level 31, and you will earn 5 Uranium for each level after 31.

Indeed, you read that right. The level cap is coming off in Generation Zero, partially anyway. With the new maximum level reaching 10k for those that are running and gunning their way to prestige!

Farmlands Control Points

FNIX has been quite busy since the last update, and has further encroached into the Farmlands region with new control points. 12 new control points are ready and waiting for you to raid them for all the loot needed to keep the resistance going! You’ll be able to hold up to 6 locations in this newly opened front. Here is a sneak peek at a couple of them, but you should venture out into the world to scope out the rest:

Partial North Coast Revamp

There have been a few new iterations in the North Coast. The most affected areas are in Hagaboda, so hop on over to see all the new details and explore!

Tactical Equipment Pack

This paid DLC is bringing new tactics to the battlefield with scrapped together support equipment from past Resistance fights.

Autonomous Turret Sentry - This deployable mini-tower can give you cover fire while traversing an incursion.

Portable Cover - Assembled armor pieces from FNIX’s friends can now give you cover in a tight spot!

Remote Sticky Bombs - You’ll now be able to throw (and stick) multiple explosives to any incoming machine, perhaps even turning them into a makeshift weapon on the fly!

Dog Toy Lure - This trap is cute and cuddly, for a brief moment anyway, but will bring explosive hugs to its metallic friends after some time.

Molotov Cocktail - A classic weapon for any resistance! Throwing these will not only damage machines, but will also burn fuel on the ground for added effect.

Cool! So now you are a NPCs as well Pontus? :wink:


No solution for safehouses getting lost or the broken fmtel assignment system, yet?
When will the update arrive on Playstation?
I’m checking for updates for about an hour now, but nothing yet.

What about the problems with suddenly appearing/disappearing machines close to control points?

Thx for the work, we’ll test it of course.


Guess i am :sunglasses::sunglasses:

Should be available for you already but might be buffering issues with PS that hides it from you. Give it a little time and you’ll see it soon!

Thx, congrats to your own NPC.
Will you survive? :thinking: :wink:

Btw. Is there a method to restart the games story without deleting every character and loosing everything? That would be great to experience all new changes for the beginning.

But please, take a look at my suggestion for a changed providing of the dlc content (weapon packs,…) instead of just placing them in the plundra.

Edit: the update finally arrived for me on ps5.
V1.30, 19,077 GB

Lots of things sorted there. Mostly for MP which I don’t do.
Nothing here either fixed or acknowledged about Fmtel assignments which have been broken in one form or another since introduction.

Or anything about the “Our new home” challenge bug!


Hey can I ask a direct question is PS5 going to get a FPS boost as this question has been floating around for a while now, I look forward to exploring the changes appreciate the work you guys do ! :v:

I sure hope so!!

Theres continuous work on fixing assignments thats not tracking propperly. So not patch specific work.

No plans for PS5 version right now.


Ok thanks for heads up, I’m glad I switched to Xbox for this game :+1:

Any idea when this new content is going live on xbox? as of now there is no sign also no sign of the tactical equipment pack on the xbox store

great thnx for the update :smiley:

It’s a small fix but I’m glad you can now go from crouching to proning instantly instead of having to stand up first on console, thank you!


Thanks for quick response. Have you any idea about when a fix might come as assignments and challenges are about the only things I do and both are broken.
