New Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden Featurette Explains What the Game is All About

Funcom and The Bearded Ladies have released a new video featurette for Mutant Year Zero, to provide gamers with an inside look at what the game is all about.

The game features XCOM-style gameplay, but with a focus on real-time exploration, so rather than just be presented with staged combat scenarios, you will organically come across them as if you’re playing a third-person action-RPG. I was lucky enough to give the game a go at this past E3, and it was very challenging, but addicting due to the challenge, so I do think turn-based strategy fans will enjoy what it has to offer when it releases on December 4.

Head on up above to learn more about what Mutant Year Zero is all about.

About Mutant Year Zero

On December 4th, in just under two months, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden will make its debut on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game combines XCOM-like tactical combat with real-time exploration, stealth, and story as it puts players on a journey across a post-human Sweden where anthropomorphic animals scramble to survive in the remains of human civilization. Throughout the game, players can seamlessly jump between real-time exploration and tactical combat.

Now available for PC pre-order on, the game will be available in a Standard Edition ($34.99) and a Deluxe Edition ($54.99). The Deluxe Edition includes a desktop wallpaper, digital artbook, digital soundtrack, and a digital copy of the Mutant Year Zero pen-and-paper RPG book. Pre-ordering the Standard Edition will give you a three-day head start at launch while pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition gives you the same head start as well as access to a Beta version of the game before launch. The game will also launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on December 4th, simultaneously with PC.
