“By blending real-time stealth with tried-and-true tactics gameplay, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden breaks exciting new ground for the turn-based strategy game.” - IGN



From a team including former designers of HITMAN and PAYDAY comes Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, a tactical game that combines the turn-based combat of XCOM with real-time stealth and exploration of a post-human world reclaimed by nature… and Mutants.

Of course the world ends.

It was just a question of time. Extreme climate change, global economic crisis, a lethal pandemic, and increasing tension between old and new superpowers. For the first time since 1945 nuclear weapons were used in armed conflict. Mushroom clouds rose from east to west before the dust settled.

Now it’s over and the Earth is still. Nature has invaded ruined cities. Wind sweeps through empty streets, turned into graveyards.

The humans are all gone. Scavenging through the remains of civilization are the Mutants, deformed humanoids and animals alike, searching for salvation or just something to eat. To survive, you and your companions must venture out to explore the Zone.

Maybe one day you will find the Eden of legends, the ancients’ haven in the middle of hell. That’s where truth awaits, the stories say. Maybe you will find your answers there.

Then again, maybe it’s all bullshit.

TACTICAL COMBAT


Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is the ultimate fix for your tactical strategy addiction. Dive into a deep, turn-based, tactical combat system inspired by the XCOM games.

EXPLORE A POST-HUMAN EARTH


Journey through a post-human world of abandoned cities, crumbling highways, and overgrown countryside. Check back at the Ark, a neon-bathed oasis of ill repute and questionable characters, to restock your supplies and plan out your next adventure.

CONTROL A TEAM OF MUTANTS


A duck with an attitude problem and a boar with anger issues; these aren’t your typical heroes. Get to know Dux, Bormin, Selma, and many other characters each with their own unique personality and deranged perspective on the world and their situation.

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 Mutants, such as Selma’s grasping vines, 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 ENVIRONMENT


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.

Really amazing little game. I like how you approach every battle. you need to think before shoot. If you go run and gun you can win maybe on normal mode but you will be rekt on hard for sure. Also that apocalyptic worl and atmosphere were amazing to explore and find some hats and weapons. Truth be told I like this more than x com 2.

A very good game, with a deep and fun story, the characters are very atypical and although the progression of the game is a bit slow (the combats become somewhat repetitive) it is highly recommended.
  • - ambush sistems
  • - fun dialogues
  • - Interesting history
  • - very linear
  • - little variety of weapons
  • - combats become somewhat repetitive

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is a mixture of real-time exploration and turn-based strategy, you control a team of three mutant stalkers in a post-apocalyptic world, the world has plenty of loot to collect and enemies to hunt down for experience so you could level up and gain some loot that you can take back to home base and sell or craft new gear. When starting the game, you have a selection of three difficulties normal, hard and very hard, there is also an iron mutant to choose which introduces perma-death, no manual saving, auto saves after every combat.

More casual or hard-core player base?
The thing this game does different compared to other turned-based strategy games is that you take full control of your team of three mutant stalkers and traveling around a map exploring freely until you find a group of enemies, the player then can go into stealth switch off flash lights and placing your squad in positions that the player thinks is the best for the once in combat the game turns into a turn based game. The game in my experience teaches the player in the first mission the controls and mechanics really well, so it is easy to pick up for those who will be playing a turn-based action game for the first time quite easily
The flow of the game is set at a good pace while free roaming it allows the player to appreciate the environment that is over grown and desalinate from the post-apocalypse around them listening to the spoken dialog for the story, the camera while free roaming is set at a third person view seeing all three characters. This allows players to think strategically on what is the best weapon to use, what tactics player should use and what character skills to use on certain enemy’s during the game.

How It Works
The game has a gear system to take in consideration equipping the characters with what best suits them and for the situation choosing from weapons, armor and headgear. The weapons are pistols, shotguns, assault rifles and sniper rifles there is a total of 15 weapons to choose from and find during the game each with its own damage, critical damage, critical chance ammo, range and if it comes with a silencer or can knockback and destroy cover. The armor you can choose from comes with some armor bonuses, HP bonuses and special effects ranging from immunity to critical hits, increased throwing range and absorbing explosive damage. The head-gear you can choose from comes with special effects such as +25 weapon range, immune to critical hits, +2 grenade damage and more.
You gain experience points after winning fights you encounter to put into the skill tree choosing mutations and abilities each character has eight available mutations and five permanent stat bonuses. Each character can have three active skills at a time, one for a main skill, one for a minor skill and one for a passive skill, for example one main skill can allow the player to use chain lighting during combat to hit a group of enemies in one turn, one minor skill can allow the player to use chameleon becoming invisible until attacking , one passive skill can allow the player to reach high places by moving or sprinting in combat, each playable character has a different skill tree to upgrade and learn.

Is it worth picking up?
I think it is, even for those who are new to this genre of game, it has a lot of charm to it from the story, gameplay, sound design and visual design. Definitely worth picking up for fans of turn-based combat and those who are new to the genre.

The random accuracy stats on weapons aren't random. All combat is decided beforehand. No matter what your shooting chance is, all shots are pre-scripted. Reload a save 100 times, you will always get the same result. A miss will always be a miss and a hit will always be a hit no matter the chance to hit. This isn't a real game.
  • Setting is nice
  • Combat is fake, making the game meaningless
