HoYoverse’s new urban fantasy ARPG, Zenless Zone Zero, is already receiving numerous claims of game crashes from early players, with an official release bug thread on Reddit receiving plenty of feedback.

MiHoyo’s latest ARPG looks like a fun, stylish, action-packed ride that is sure to please most fans of the team’s work. However, it’s tough to enjoy thrilling gameplay if the game keeps crashing – and that’s what many players are experiencing. A ZZZ release date bugs mega thread is slowly filling up as we speak, with evergrowing claims of game crashes on PC, PS5, and Android.

While many of the comments are simple bug fixes that are to be expected from a brand-new title, some are more damming. One Redditor says “game crashes as soon as i get the the first playable part, ive seen others with the same issue dont know if I can fix it?”.

That individual isn’t alone either, with many others stating similar cases. One individual says “Everything in the game is working… except for backgrounds. Everything is just black…”, whereas others say the game crashes randomly – whether they’re exploring the streets or in combat.

The game seems to be receiving praise from official critics over at Metacritic, with the game scoring 81/100 on its opening day. Early user feedback is too soon to tell, but if game crashes are widespread, it could put many people off the game.

Like always, we’ll be taking claims with a pinch of salt – as many of the mainstream reviewers seem to be enjoying gameplay. It’ll be interesting to see how reactive the developers are in aiding individuals who are seeing these problems though.
