Press release   •   Dec 03, 2019 14:01 UTC

One year after the release of acclaimed video game Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, Funcom have decided to offer gamers a chance to experience post-apocalyptic Sweden at a substantial discount. The event coincides with the release of the official fan film Mutant.

OSLO, Norway – Dec 3rd, 2019 Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden was regarded as a surprise gem of the year by many a critic when it was released December 2018. Now publisher Funcom and developer The Bearded Ladies celebrate the 1-year anniversary by cutting the price by a hefty 40 percent on the official website www.mutantyearzero.com. But fans of the tactical RPG genre will have to hurry, as the sale, which is for the PC version of the game, will only last for a couple of days.

Today also marks the release of the Mutant official fan short film, created by the Swedish film production companies Stellarvoid, Standard Film Team (SFT) and Strym Media. Screenwriter and director Albin Glasell describes making the film as a dream come true.

“I grew up on post-apocalyptic games and films, but the world of Mutant always stood out,” says the short film director. “There is something about the atmosphere, the humor and the characters you encounter which really makes Mutant unique. You can definitely call the making of this movie a passion project for me, but in all fairness, it has been a passion project for the entire crew. Everyone has gone above and beyond, and I hope it shows on screen,” says Glasell.

The short film is available for free on SFT’s and Funcom’s YouTube channel.

The Mutant franchise dates back to the 1980s, with the release of the tabletop role-playing game of the same name. Last year came the first video game adaption, critically acclaimed Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. It was initially launched on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but has since then also been released on Nintendo Switch. The expansion Seed of Evil was released July 31st, 2019.
