We’re finally halfway through the 15 days of free games on the Epic Games Store. Right on time for Christmas eve, especially if you managed to play through all 6 prior. Calm down, my dude. Just take it easy. Better yet, take a walk down Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden.
We’re looking at a sweet turn-based role-playing video game based on the popular tabletop, Mutant Year Zero. It’s a tactical, isometric game where you challenge your way through three levels of difficulty with a party of three. You know what they say about good things coming in a certain number, right?
You’ll catch a glimpse of a story revolving around extreme climate change, a global crisis, a lethal pandemic, and some really freaky mutations. Yep, no more humans–just the way we like it. Follow the journey of Bormin the boar and Dux the duck as they take their chances in a barren wasteland in search of the real “Eden.”
It’s domination through mutation.
If you’re looking to satisfy that craving for games a la XCOM, but feel tired of the usual military backdrop, the Road to Eden just might be the path to take. With an open world, complete with a dynamic environment that leads into that sweet tactical combat you love, give the mutants a shot.
