Resistance Report - 2023-10-13

Happy Friday, Survivors!

This is the second of our new series of community update newsletters that are now officially named Resistance Report! Trademark pending.

They’re intended to provide you with some information about what we’re working on and how we’re progressing. If you missed the first one, you can check it out here. I’m Carni, Community Manager for GZ and I’ll be taking you through some points today!

Let’s get into it, shall we?

60FPS on PS5

As many of you have surely seen on our 2023 Roadmap, we’re currently working on getting Generation Zero to a stable 60FPS on Playstation. We’ve also mentioned that this would be a challenge with many layers and hurdles, and those are starting to come to light now.

In short, we’re not going to release all the improvements necessary to achieve this in 2023.

The initial deadline was already rather tight with the other content we’re developing for GZ, and it has turned out not to be viable. We would have loved to bring this much-requested feature to you in 2023, but we need to consider our Developers’ work balance first.

Regardless, we’re putting a lot of effort into this and are working to have it ready as soon as possible.

Halloween Event 2023

The Halloween Event is back!

Between October 21st and November 5th, you’ll once again be able to earn four spooky clothing sets to scare your friends with.

They drop from all Machines you exorcise (except for the Seeker, poor fella doesn’t get any swag to carry) and will of course be unlocked permanently once you get them.
This is the perfect opportunity for our new players (looking at you, Playstation Plus members!) to get their fashion game up to par!
As for our Veterans: We hear that you’d like new clothing sets to obtain and are working on some new apparel items for you to earn in 2024. Until then, feel free to complete your Halloween style collections.
I look forward to seeing your boo-tiful outfits all over our social media and will show the best ones to the Dev Team to admire!

Checking in on the next update

Everything is on track for it so far. We don’t have a date for it yet, but development is going well and soon, I’ll be able to tell you more about what’s in it.
In the meantime, let me give you some advice I’ve given to the people who join my weekly live streams (subtle plug, I know):
Those weapons you don’t need? I’d keep them in my storage box for now, if I were you. They might come in handy later.

Speaking of storage boxes: we’re aware of the fact that many players have run out of storage space again and are asking for the ability to upgrade their plundra further. We want to enable you to do this, but it requires more research into balancing and performance. We appreciate your patience!

Thanks for reading this first official Resistance Report! As always, if there is anything you’d like me to discuss or mention in future reports, please let me know.



Thanks for the update , maybe time to add Halloween options to my Xbox character :v:

Too sad that the 60fps on PS5 need more time, but on the other hand it’s good to know that you give everything to be able to provide the best possible experience.
Let’s hope the optimizations optimize the game and the overall experience and don’t come with a bad taste of negative side effects like less good quality of graphics, effects, details or viewdistance.

Regarding the request for more storage, I always stated my opinion that it isn’t necessary.
In the past we were able to handle the game without any storage. Then more equipment and weapons came into the game and a storage for 200kg. That worked well, too. Always (after hundreds of hours) close to the limits, but it worked. Now we have up to 400kg space and it’s still the same… always close to the limits, but it works.

There is no problem with not enough space. We all just have to manage our stuff. Keep what you really need and recycle/throw away the rest. The ones who just want more space in general don’t do that. They throw in all they can get. And they will keep on doing that if the space will be increased… And soon there will be requests for even more space.

One thing I would really love to see instead is taking out the initial 3c DLC stuff off the plundra. You could add another special location like a crashed plane or ship or truck somewhere in the center of archipelago region with a box that provides the initial DLC stuff. This boat/plane/truck could be entered through a door which is locked if you don’t own any DLC, which provides new equipments or weapons. There could also be a short mission or at least some lore to introduce the DLC stuff.

:thinking: interesting spoiler. What could be meant?
Two or maybe three things could be possible.

  1. By dismanteling weapons you’ll get weapon parts that are needed to craft augmentations for your guns.
  2. The augmentations we may craft are just in specific combinations possible so that we get some unique weapons. But to get all possible combinations, we have to craft several guns of the same types, like an AG4 for close combat, an AG4 for medium to long range precision shootings, an AG4 for high damage output (stronger, faster, or even with under barrel grenade launcher?)…
  3. We’ll need augmentation crafting points which we get by dismanteling guns or crafting augmentations on guns. To get enough points for all possible augmentations, we should have some guns we can use for that.

I just hope we don’t have to wait until halloween again. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Mmh isn’t there an anniversary next year? :wink:

Thx for the Letter, Carni.


I really like the idea of separate storage area , that would add more to the feel of the game, army truck , crashed transport helicopter or plane.
I personally don’t worry about extra plunders space , there’s more than enough room for me, agree the PS5 update is welcome when it comes :v:
