The cinematic trailer for Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden got our attention. We don’t normally see a mutant pig with an auto pistol or a well-armed Howard the Duck looking character. Today we can see how the game will actually play. A new gameplay trailer has dropped today, and the developers talk through over a half hour of gameplay details, combat, and characters.
At a very high level, it is similar to XCOM. Players take turns, strategize their next moves, and tactically eliminate the enemy. The environment can be your friend or enemy, depending on whether you take a stealthy approach and utilize your brains along with your guns.
Check out the gameplay, and let us know if you need a little more strategy gaming in your life.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
