Welcome to Zero-K

To learn the basics, take a look at the Newbie Guide. Questions inform yourself by reading the FAQ.
Try the game in single player mode to get used to the basic game controls. Recommended missions are:

  • Sandbox - just test everything in an empty game, look at different units and get a feeling for the interface
  • Tutorial 1: Running Start - the first of two tutorial missions, here you can learn the very basics
  • Tutorial 2: A Day Out - the second tutorial, provides information on essential game mechanics
  • 2v1 - play with an allied computer controlled player against another computer controlled player
  • Very easy chickens - defend yourself from hordes of alien chickens and strike back
Some useful manual resources for new players:
