Funcom officially unveiled the new game its been teasing since last week, and, as expected, it's a post-apocalyptic piece. Billed as a "tactical adventure game combining the turn-based combat of XCOM with story, exploration, stealth, and strategy", Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden throws players into a world forever changed by nuclear war. There are no humans any more, only mutants.
The single-player game allows players on PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One to control a team of mutants -- the duck, warthog, and whatever the woman is -- in stealthy, turn-based combat. Players will explore a "post-human" wasteland, unlock new mutations for their mutants and earn loot.
While Funcom hasn't stated monetization plans for this game yet, the fact that it's a single-player offering and they're the publisher (It's developed by The Bearded Ladies, whose team includes former HITMAN leads.), I'm inclined to think we're looking at one of their buy-to-play offerings, but we wanted to follow up on our previous reporting for those that were interested
