Mutant Year Zero: Road To Eden Announced For Consoles And PC

 Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, a “tactical adventure”, will be launching on PS4, Xbox One, and PC later this year. Created by Swedish developer Bearded Ladies and published Funcom the game is based on a the tabletop role-playing series Mutant, which was originally released way back in 1984.

The game will feature X-COM style turn-based combat in which you play a duck with an attitude problem, a boar with anger issues, and a humanoid with stone for skin, with the story set on a “post-human Earth”.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is the ultimate fix for your tactical strategy addiction. Dive into a deep, turn-based, tactical combat system inspired by the XCOM games.
Journey through a post-human world of abandoned cities, crumbling highways, and overgrown countryside. Check back at the Ark, a neon-bathed oasis of ill repute and questionable characters, to restock your supplies and plan out your next adventure.
A duck with an attitude problem and a boar with anger issues; these aren’t your typical heroes. Get to know Dux, Bormin, Selma, and many other characters each with their own unique personality and deranged perspective on the world and their situation.
Sneak through shadows to avoid conflict or to catch enemies unaware. Real-time stealth allows you full control of approach: sneak into an enemy camp, position the team of Mutants to your advantage, and gain the element of surprise.
Unlock new mutations and abilities for your Mutants, such as Selma’s Stoneskin, Bormin’s Charge, and Dux‘ uncanny ability to sneak into a camp full of enemies unnoticed, despite being a 4-foot tall walking, talking duck with a crossbow.
Use the environment to your advantage. Stay out of floodlights, hide from line of sight, or just blast down fully destructible walls and buildings and wreak utter havoc.
From makeshift slingshots to high-powered rifles and top hats to police vests, make sure you equip your Mutants for the dangers ahead. Nothing says post-human quite like a mutated boar in spiked metal armor charging at you with a blunderbuss in his hands.

  1. The game looks great, & tactical combat combined with the described stealth sound right up my alley!! Looking forward to seeing more of this once GDC kicks off & sites start covering their news.

    Of course, it doesn’t hurt that I’ve always had a soft spot for anthropomorphic ducks! (Daffy’s my idol, & Howard got Lea Thompson – who in ’86 didn’t want Lea Thompson?!)
