Independent developer Funcom and publisher Bearded Ladies have announced a brand-new turn based tactical game called Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, based on the classic ‘Mutant’ IP that has spawned several popular pen and paper role-playing games since the 1980s.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden combines the tactical turn-based combat of ‘XCOM’ with real-time exploration and stealth gameplay, wrapping it all up in a deep storyline set on a post-human Earth. Players take control of a team of unlikely heroes, including Dux (a crossbow-wielding, walking, talking duck) and Bormin (a boar with serious anger issues), and help them navigate a post-human Earth with its abandoned cities, crumbling highways, and mutated monsters on every corner.
It’s an unusual label for a game, but tactical adventure really fits the bill, no duck pun intended… Our goal is to blend the deep and tactical combat of ‘XCOM’ with a branching storyline that unfolds as you explore overgrown forests and abandoned cities with your team of Mutants. Mixing that with real-time stealth gameplay gives you a unique way to approach or avoid combat situations you encounter while exploring – Executive Producer Ulf Andersson at Bearded Ladies
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is due for release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime in 2018
