Let's be honest, the machines are mere years from taking over the world, which means it's time to start preparing your game plan. Luckily, a new game from Avalanche Studios will help you hone those skills.

Ahead of E3, a new game from the developers behind Just Cause has been announced. Generation Zero is an "explosive game of cat and mouse set in a vast open world" where machines are invading the stunning countryside of an alternate-history timeline set in 1980s Sweden.

According to their website, the co-op game will feature "unpredictable weather, complex AI behavior, simulated ballistics, highly realistic acoustics," and even the perfect 1980s soundtrack to put you in the mood. Surely they'll be some ABBA too, right?

The goal of the game is to use guerrilla tactics to not only destroy the approaching enemy but also uncover a mystery as to why they're encroaching on the land in the first place. Other than the obvious reasons for wanting to live in the Swedish countryside, which looks pretty stunning in the announcement trailer below.

The Generation Zero world has days and nights and the robots are "persistently simulated," meaning the enemy is constantly roaming around looking to take you out. The good news is, once you destroy or injure an enemy, it's permanent. But don't worry, you don't have to be alone. Generation Zero allows players to team up with up to three other players, so grab a few friends who you wouldn't mind trying to collaborate with to survive the apocalypse. Anybody good with a shotgun and need a teammate?

Generation Zero will be available for PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One in 2019. Let's just hope they don't take over before we even get the chance to practice.
