Funcom announces Mutant Year Zero, a tactical adventure game
If mutants, post-apocalyptic settings, and turn-based combat sound intriguing, then Funcom’s got a pleasant surprise in store for you today with its announcement of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden.
Developed by Sweden’s Bearded Ladies and published by Funcom, Mutant Year Zero is a tactical adventure game in the style of XCOM that takes place in an alternate timeline in which humanity is gone and mutants roam a world in ruins. It is based on the Mutant pen-and-paper RPG that is part of the package that Funcom picked up a little while back and will be available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 this year.
Before you ask, no, there doesn’t seem to be any indication that this is a multiplayer game, but it does show that Funcom is flexing its publisher muscles in an attempt to diversify as a studio.
