Get ready to start fresh as the Generation Zero Dark Skies update has arrived. In addition to adding a new flying machine enemy to rain terror from above and a moped to escape it, this patch includes the new option to start from scratch in the Scandinavian open world game. The patch comes along with a new paid DLC that adds even more fast vehicles in the form of motorcycles, as well as a free Halloween event.

Dark Skies is named after its new enemy: it is the Soviet Firebird and it is Generation Zero’s first flying enemy that can actually fight back. This terrifying machine can be armed with autocannons, howitzers, Teslacoil spikes and trip bombs. You’ll find it in the north of Östertörn, but make sure you have the equipment to take it down if you head that way. Developer Systemic Reaction says it’s worth the trip, though – the Firebird has valuable loot up for grabs if you can take one down.

However, the biggest update in Dark Skies is the new game revamp. Until now, the world of Generation Zero has been one that continues – after your first character, all new games you start will take place in that world, permanently completing quests that the first character did. The patch adds a new option to start a fresh new world so you can replay the campaign from scratch.

You used to be able to have up to four characters and one world. Now you can still have four characters, but you can have four separate worlds if you want.

Dark Skies also adds the new tuned moped vehicle – a major upgrade from the bikes added in 2019. The patch also introduces a weapon skin system with five free new weapon skins to collect from the smoldering wreckage of rivals you’ve defeated.

Generation Zero also joins in the seasonal Halloween fun. Every time you defeat a machine between now and November 2, there’s a chance it’ll drop a piece from one of the four new vanity sets. These include the Nightmare, Slasher, Vampire, and Arctic Halloween outfits.

If the moped is still too slow for your taste, check out the new Motorbikes DLC. It includes three different models, each with its own driving characteristics and capabilities. You can get it on Steam for $6.99 USD / £6.99 GBP.
