Late last week, Funcom began a countdown to reveal a brand new game in the company's stable. Now we know that it is Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, a tactical adventure game that comes complete with "a deep storyline set on a post-human Earth". It will combine strategy and turn-based combat most recently seen in XCOM along with "real-time exploration and stealth gameplay". The game is in development by former members of the Hitman team and Ulf Andersson, the original designer behind Payday.

    Looks good to me, I love the XCOM games so having that level of character customisation and tactical combat, but with awesome post-apoc mutants sounds awesome!

    Hopefully the game can be played single player

    Played the actual RPG, pretty nifty, this seems to be set post-Genlab Alpha, but following the Year Zero plot. Nice. Good choice. Should've included Mechatron too...

    Funcom should just make cgi movies. That’s their true calling.

    turn based has its fans, but it is not for me.

    Looking forward to that.

    I hope we can also choose ARK projects like in the RPG, to improve our base. In the RPG I am a "Fixer" named Gordon Gekko - trying to build many houses in the ARK, so we can have a "Wall Street" ;-)

    This new game reminds me a bit of Jagged Alliance. More focussed on a few specific characters.


    Have fun

    Indeed it looks nice. I love the post-apocalyptic vibe.

    However, the trailer was awesome, up until the end. I mean, you would expect a hella lot of fight, but then .. they came from behind and .. fin !

    So to make a game this fast,it has to be lacking content.If is as cool as the cinematic then could have some fun value,we will have to wait and see but seeing a fast development tells me not to expect too much.
    Post Apoc vibe does little for me because it always means a lifeless less effort world.Although in this case we see some hint of maybe zombies "oh boy lol"and robots.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.

    My lord,looking over those screenshots,now it's coming together,it looks horrible,it looks EXACTLY like Trion's Atlas Reactor but with a twist.It will have a small mini map zone laid out for the turn based and tactical is going to be like Atlas,this will be a no go for me,wasn't into AR at al and won't be into the same with a twist either.

    Bethesda never release info on their own games until near release! Do you think their games like Elder scrolls and Fallout are lacking in content??

    Turn based games - it's a dwindling playerbase in the last 5 years - many people will say they like turn based - but in reality very few actually play turn based games.

    I am in that dwindling group that actually enjoys turn based games and plays them, but it's a small group.

    Still making a turn based game today - it's just not going to be big seller, Funcom hopefully has done their market research and knows this.
    I  did not realize anyone had created a turn based game in the past 5 years, can you share the name of your favorites, I might want to try one.  (Being old and slow) :)

    X-Com sells well, as did Divinity: Original Sin 1 and 2, Darkest Dungeon, and Civilization. They're all turn based and made in the last 5 years. Like any other type of game, make a good one and people will play/buy it.

    Divinity Original Sin 1 and 2, Pillars of Eternity 1 and 2 coming soon, Tides of Numenera, Wasteland 2, Tyrany, Xcom 2... lots of them.

    If you want to try just one I'd recommend D:OS 2. It's the best of the bunch.

    Could potentially include the Civ series and Total War series in the list of turn based games. I guess Total War has real time combat, but a good portion of the game is turn based in terms of long term strategy.

    I thought their next game was supposed to be another Conan game.

    Whoops again, I own a few more of those,  and even played a few. (POE1 and Wasteland 2)

    I have D:OS1, but not 2 yet.

    Dammit, I need more free time to game.

    Is it true older people don't need to sleep all that much? ;)

    Well, if my grandfather was any indication "yes".

    Now "me"? given how I'm again I'm going to need more sleep ....


    This looks cool but am I the only person bothered by the duck? I'm going to say yes.
