Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is quickly approaching its release date, and Xbox players with a Game Pass have a special advantage. It was recently announced that on December 4th, Mutant Year Zero will go live on the Xbox subscription game service, and will also be available to purchase on PS4 and PC the same day. Xbox Game Pass is an awesome way for games to reach a larger audience, so with Mutant Year Zero‘s relatively smaller launch compared to most AAA games of the season, it can really help spread the word. What’s more relevant today is that Funcom released a new gameplay video today, featuring gameplay in the Scraplands. Check it out below.
At almost 15 minutes, this is quite a chunk of gameplay to release, and gives players a lot of insight into the game’s mechanics. I’m honestly just so impressed by the graphics in this game, which obviously get a boost because of the near-isometric nature of the camera. But even when the game zooms for stealth approach choices or combat animations, it looks just as pretty.
The stealth aspect of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is featured heavily in this new video, and that’s no surprise considering half of the development team is made up of former Hitman devs. I like how players have the option of approaching the enemies in several ways, and they aren’t just confined to a funneled battle scenario.
I’m really, really excited for this game. After playing such huge games like Red Dead Redemption 2, and the oncoming hours I’ll be spending in the sprawling Fallout 76, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is going to be a nice break from the in-depth RPGs of the season. I’m not saying that those games are slogging or bad, but there’s so much investment in those, and I’m also looking forward to some sci-fi weirdness as far as atmosphere goes. It’s new and fresh, and while returning to the worlds of Red Dead and Fallout are always awesome, it’ll be great to jump into something new.
