MUTANT: YEAR ZERO VIDEO GAME ANNOUNCED

Press Release   •   Feb 28, 2018 12:44 GMT

Free League Publishing's award-winning tabletop RPG Mutant Year Zero is coming to PC and consoles. Funcom today announced Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, a tactical adventure game that combines the turn-based combat of XCOM with a real-time stealth and exploration of a post-human world reclaimed by nature… and mutants.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is developed by the Swedish studio Bearded Ladies, a team including former Hitman leads and the designer of Payday. Free League Publishing has provided lore and setting guidance for the dev team, as well as helped out on characters and quest writing.

Mutant Year Zero is the latest edition of the classic Swedish tabletop RPG Mutant, the first edition of which was released back in 1984.

Description of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden:

Of course the world ends.

It was just a question of time. Extreme climate change, global economic crisis, a lethal pandemic, and increasing tension between old and new superpowers. For the first time since 1945 nuclear weapons were used in armed conflict. Mushroom clouds rose from east to west before the dust settled.

Now it’s over and the Earth is still. Nature has invaded ruined cities. Wind sweeps through empty streets, turned into graveyards.

The humans are all gone. Scavenging through the remains of civilization are the mutants, deformed humanoids and animals alike, searching for salvation or just something to eat. To survive, you and your companions must venture out to explore the Zone.

Maybe one day you will find the Eden of legends, the ancients’ haven in the middle of hell. That’s where truth awaits, the stories say. Maybe you will find your answers there.

Then again, maybe it’s all bullshit.

    Funny that this has just been announced. I had just discussed how the game would port very well to video game. Looking forward for more news on this!
