Zenless Zone Zero is rapidly approaching and it won't be long before you can dive into Hollow Zero to take on enemies or hang around New Eridu City with your new friends.

If you're itching to get your hands on Zenless Zone Zero then you'll simply need to wait for the release date, right? Well, yes and no - you can make sure you're ready to play it by doing a Preload.

With that in mind, here's the preload time for Zenless Zone Zero.

Zenless Zone Zero Preload Time

You can start to preload Zenless Zone Zero now on Tuesday, 2nd July - a full 48 hours before the game's official global release time.

Doing the preload will mean that the game is already installed on your chosen device. When you've done this it means you can jump straight into it once Zenless Zone Zero is officially released, taking away the agonising wait for the download bar to fill on launch day while everyone else is already playing.
