Funcom’s Mutant Year Zero is launching on December 4 on PC and console

“Funcom and The Bearded Ladies” still sounds like an indie rock band to me, so imagine this post is a song, shall we? The publisher and studio duo announced early this morning that they’ll be launching Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden on December 4th of this year, simultaneously on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

Preorders are live for PC on the official site right now, with a 15% discount if you use the GAMESCOM2018 code at checkout. “The game will be available in a Standard Edition ($34.99) and a Deluxe Edition ($54.99),” Funcom says. “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 samehead start as well as access to a Beta version of the game before launch.”

Funcom announced the post-apoc tactical adventure game earlier this year, though it was only later that we found out the multiplayer options had been long-since axed. Since it’s Funcom, we took a peek at GDC and E3 anyway, coming away pretty impressed with our hands-on.

when playing the tabletop version of this game, i did not have in my mind what is presented on the screen before me. i figured all the people were mostly human with deformities. not howard the duck and rocksteady.

that said, the inability to customize your squad will see me right out of this game.

Well I only flipped through my brothers copy on the Pen and Paper game but they seemed pretty clearly anthropomorphic animals to me.

The mutant animals are from GenLab Alpha. Though ironically there is no duck or boar as available animals (unless it’s in a different source material).

As for squad customization. It looks like as you play the game you recruit new characters to join you on the Road to Eden…and I just realized that’s a “Road to…” reference (dux is Bing Cosby, Bormin is Bob Hope, and Selma is Dorothy Lamour).

Fun fact their is at least one lab in the US producing pigs with a little human DNA.

And I have seen a documentary where a dude turns another dude into a walrus.

AND it was on the internet so ya know it was real.

EY! I was wondering about this game.

Also, I find it funny that dux and Bormin aren’t possible to play in Mutant: GenLab Alpha. Unless there is source matrial somewhere.

Is the hit rate as bad as XCOM? :D

Not sure how bad the dice rolling can get, considering I’ve missed three times in a row in X-Com with an 85% chance to hit, but it’s possible to get 100% hit chance in this game.

OMG! Xcom infuriates me so with that.
