Why Snowbreak: Containment Zone Landing on Mobile Is Big News

Every once in a while, a game comes along that blows the roof off the mobile gaming scene. 

It happened with Angry Birds, it happened with Genshin Impact, and it’s just about all over again with Snowbreak: Containment Zone

Developed by Seasun Games, Snowbreak: Containment Zone is a huge, visually spectacular multiplayer 3D shooter with a rich sci-fi setting, RPG elements, and cross-platform gameplay on PC and mobile.

The game has already been through a global closed beta, and now it’s getting a global rollout.   

We’re here to tell you exactly why the mobile launch of Snowbreak: Containment Zone is huge news, even if you’ve never read about it before now. 


You can tell a lot about a game by its lore. In the case of Snowbreak: Containment Zone, that lore is about as rich as it gets. 

We could fill this entire article with backstory, so we’ll try to keep it brief.

Essentially, the game takes place in a sci-fi universe where adolescents are being struck down by a mysterious illness called Juvosis, the treatment for which is manufactured by an international conglomerate called Yggdrasil Enterprises.

As it happens, the same company also runs an annual arena event called the Valkyrie Games, and at the finals of the eighth edition a Titan shows up out of nowhere, goes on a deadly rampage, and then disappears. 

This incident is known as the First Descent, and it’s followed by many other Titan invasions, all of them leaving behind a toxic substance called Titagen. 

In order to limit the damage caused by the Titans and Titagen, Yggdrasil Enterprises builds a containment zone. 

It also creates the Heimdall Force, a paramilitary army of Manifestations. These mysterious god-like beings appeared in the wake of the First Descent, and can seemingly use Titagen to their advantage. Plus, they’re popular and famous, attracting lucrative sponsorship deals.

And so the stage is set for some epic confrontations. 


The Manifestations that make up Heimdall Force showcase the same imagination and creative ambition that has gone into the gameworld itself. 

They include Lyfe Bestla, AKA Wednesday, a vengeful warrior who rocks a submachine gun; Fenny Golden, a shotgun-toting operative who considers herself locked in competition with Wednesday; and Acacia, a mysterious Bourne-like character who comes out of cryostasis with no memory of her past, but some pretty sweet combat abilities. 

There are tons of these characters, each of them totally distinct from the others in terms of skills, visual appearance, and personality. 

Some are former Valkyrie Games competitors, some are former gang members, and one is even a former teacher. 

But they all kick ass.


Gameplay-wise, Snowbreak: Containment Zone is the first mobile shooter we’ve seen to take a leaf out of Titanfall’s book, giving you huge opponents to take on as well as normal-sized enemies. 

Seasun Games has gone to great lengths to ensure that the weapons feel grounded, designing them based on realistic projections of where firearms technology is likely to go in the near future. 

And they sit alongside an RPG-esque levelling up system that will see your character acquiring powerful new skills over time. 

Having undergone a closed beta, Snowbreak: Containment Zone has been refined and polished to a high sheen, taking on player-requested features like a cover system and improved boss mechanics.

Battles are fast-paced and challenging, thanks to a slick combat system that sees you darting about, blasting away at your enemies, and unleashing a variety of different primary and support skills depending on your role and class. 

Plus, there’s a whole new base system in this launch version of the game, allowing you to interact with your Manifestations in various ways and decorate your home away from the battlefield.


If you’ve already sneaked a peek at the screenshots or watched the trailer, you’ll be well aware that Snowbreak: Containment Zone is a visually spectacular game. 

Not only is it at the cutting edge technically, with vast 3D environments and console-quality graphics all-round, but it also boasts some of the most creative art design we’ve seen all year. 

Snowbreak: Containment Zone takes place in its very own living, breathing sci-fi universe, populated by characters with their own unique styles and personalities. 

Sure, looks aren’t everything. But when this much effort has gone into the aesthetics, you can bet your bottom dollar that the rest of the game has received just as much attention.

The good news is that you can find out for yourself. Snowbreak: Containment Zone is out now on mobile and PC, and it’s launching with a host of benefits, including 60+ Echos, a purple-tier Yao, and tons of loot, weapons, and costumes.
