After teasing everyone with a countdown for a week, Funcom has announced a new XCOM-style tactical adventure game coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in 2018. Based on the popular tabletop ‘Mutant’ IP, it's set in a post-apolyptic world where mutant pigs and ducks fight for survival. If the cinematic reveal is anything to go by, this is one to keep an eye on.
Players must take control of a team of unlikely heroes, such as Dux (a crossbow-wielding, walking, talking duck) and Bormin (a boar with serious anger issues), and help them navigate a post-human Earth with its abandoned cities, crumbling highways, and mutated monsters on every corner. The ultimate goal: save yourselves by finding the legendary Eden.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden comes from Bearded Ladies, a Sweden-based studio that includes former Hitman designers and Ulf Andersson of PAYDAY fame. Gameplay is being modeled in the style of XCOM with a branching story-line reminiscent of the property's pen and paper roots.
