Remember to create a HoYoVerse Account and pre-register!

If you’ve never played a HoYoVerse game, such as Genshin Impact or Honkai: Star Rail, then you likely don’t have a HoYoVerse account. In order to play any HoYoVerse game on a PC or mobile device, you first need to create one. The account will act as your login across all of the company’s games, and you can use it to take part in limited-time web events.

If you’re on a PS5, you can just use your PSN account and don’t need to create a HoYoVerse account. However, you can tie your PSN account to a HoYoVerse one to allow you to carry over progress to other platforms.

The easiest way to create your HoYoVerse account for Zenless Zone Zero is by pre-registering for the game. Before its release, you’re able to do so on the game’s official website. Clicking “Sign Up” on the page takes you to the login window. From there, selecting “Register Now” lets you provide your email, create a password, and sign up.
