I’ve been keeping a close eye on Mutant Year Zero, since its initial announcement. The combination of stealth action with XCOM-style tactical battles is instantly alluring to me. Add a cast of colorful characters with an engaging world/setting and I’m itching to get my hands on it.
Thankfully, we’ll be getting to play the game this year. Funcom announced (along with a new trailer) Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden will launch on December 4, 2018. Just in time to occupy your time during the holidays.
Announced earlier this year, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden rustled quite a few feathers when it introduced a crossbow-wielding, bipedal, and unusually sassy duck to the otherwise bleak apocalypse genre in its unique and surprising reveal CGI. During this year’s E3 in Los Angeles, Funcom and The Bearded Ladies provided press with the first-ever hands-on demo and received several “Best of E3” awards and nominations, and this week, Funcom and The Bearded Ladies are present at GamesCom giving another updated gameplay demo to press in the business area of the show.
