Funcom announced that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, the tactical adventure game combining real-time exploration with XCOM-like turn-based tactical combat, will be launching December 4th on XBOX Game Pass. The game will also be available on both PC and PlayStation 4 the same day and is now available for pre-order on both these platforms.
Players pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition on PC via buy.mutantyearzero.com will now also get instant access to a pre-order bonus version that includes the first 2-4 hours of the game.
Funcom also released a brand-new gameplay video from the game, where Producer Mike Parker takes viewers through the Scraplands, an area from the game never shown before. Watch how he uses stealth to his advantage in the tactical gameplay, tipping the odds in his favor, before taking on the boss and his henchmen.
“We are absolutely thrilled about bringing Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden to XBOX Game Pass,” says Rui Casais, CEO of Funcom. “This is certainly not your standard console game and we think that XBOX Game Pass subscribers will find a unique and highly entertaining experience with Mutant Year Zero that they might not have discovered otherwise. We are very happy with the XBOX version of the game and the whole team is excited about Game Pass allowing us to reach an even wider audience on the console.”
The game is developed by a team made up of former HITMAN and PAYDAY lead developers. Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden has been collecting both awards and praise from press who have gotten hands-on time with the game. The game was revealed earlier this year and the reveal CGI trailer made the game’s unique anthropomorphic characters “go viral”. Based on the Swedish pen and paper RPG Mutant, the game puts you in the hooves of Bormin the boar and the webbed feet of Dux the duck as they explore a post-human Earth.
