More On: Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden

Ever wonder what it would be like if Daffy Duck and Porky Pig were transported to a realistically dystopic post-apocalyptic scifi world? Then Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden has got you covered. Check this out for our first write-up on it. 

From the press release: 

"Players must take control of a team of unlikely heroes, such as Dux (a crossbow-wielding, walking, talking duck) and Bormin (a boar with serious anger issues), and help them navigate a post-human Earth with its abandoned cities, crumbling highways, and mutated monsters on every corner".

It's been exactly one month since we last saw any inkling of visual information on the game, luckily, though, Funcom and developer Bearded Ladies have a new gameplay video to sate the masses. Here's the game's website for more. 

From the look of the video, the game is played from a top-down perspective, with an emphasis on strategy, and turn-based combat. Special abilities such as mutations come in the form of things like giant wings that sprout from Dux's back early on the video, giving him a 100% crit chance on an enemy. Another aspect of the game is destructible environments, as seen when one character destroys an enemy's cover (which is a tree) with a grenade. 

Leveling features points that you can allocate to three groups of mutations: Major, Minor, and Passive. These come in the form of general advantages in gameplay, such being able to sneak around unnoticed, or getting higher critical chances. The right combination is needed to win the day. 

The video, shown below, goes into a lot of detail about the world, gameplay function and tons of other elements. Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden does not currently have a release date, but is expected in 2018.
