The teaser-site of Funcom has revealed turn-based RPG Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. The developers promise XCOM-like combat, strong story, exploration, stealth and strategy mixed in an epic cocktail.
The events of the game take place in a post-human Earth after the devastating nuclear war. Players can look forward to exploring abandoned cities, crumbling highways and overgrown countryside.
The players will be able to control a team of mutants. The trailer shows off three of them. A duck with attitude problem called Dux. Selma, who can turn her skin to stone and a hog named Bormin. Other characters with their own unique personalities and outlook on the world will be revealed later.
Some of the game features:
- MASTER THE STEALTHY APPROACH: Sneak through shadows to avoid conflict or to catch enemies unaware. Real-time stealth allows you full control of approach: sneak into an enemy camp, position the team of Mutants to your advantage, and gain the element of surprise.
- UNLOCK MUTATIONS: Unlock new mutations and abilities for your Mutant team, such as Selma’s Stoneskin, Bormin’s Charge, and Dux‘ uncanny ability to sneak into a camp full of enemies unnoticed, despite being a 4-foot tall walking, talking duck with a crossbow.
- DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENTS: Use the environment to your advantage. Stay out of floodlights, hide from line of sight, or just blast down fully destructible walls and buildings and wreak utter havoc.
- LOOT, LOOT EVERYWHERE: From makeshift slingshots to high-powered rifles and top hats to police vests, make sure you equip your Mutants for the dangers ahead. Nothing says post-human quite like a mutated boar in spiked metal armor charging at you with a blunderbuss in his hands
