The Rise of the Robots! Mechatron Expansion to the award-winning Mutant: Year Zero RPG on pre-order now

Press Release   •   Apr 25, 2018 16:45 BST

”All human personnel are to be evacuated immediately from Production Facility Mechatron-7, on direct orders from Noatun Central Command. Control over Mechatron-7 is to be temporarily transferred to A.I. construct NODOS, to secure continued production.”

In a huge facility hidden underneath the ocean, an army of robots continues to carry out the final orders of humanity in decaying factories. But now, decades after the humans left, something is changing. Robots are starting to malfunction. To rebel. To express a will of their own. To Awake. Will these self-aware robots save the Collective - or lead it to its final downfall? It's time for the machines to make their mark on the dawnworld in Mutant: Mechatron created by Free League Publishing.

Mutant: Mechatron - Rise of the Robots Roleplaying

The machines awake in this postapocalyptic RPG in the vein of Westworld, I, Robot and Blade Runner, set in the universe of the acclaimed Mutant: Year Zero.

Mechatron is the second major expansion to the award-winning postapocalyptic tabletop RPG by Free League Publishing and will release in early June.
