Publisher Funcom and developer The Bearded Ladies announced that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is releasing on Nintendo Switch on the 25th of June. It was also announced that the Nintendo Switch version will come with an expansion DLC that will also be available for purchase on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
Ever since we started working on this game, we have always felt it would be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch. The game lends itself really well to the Switch controls and the pacing of the tactical turn-based combat is perfect for an on-the-go, handheld console. We are also excited for the opportunity to tell another Mutant Year Zero story with the new expansion DLC, and we look forward to talking more about that soon.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden combines XCOM-like tactical, turn-based combat with real-time stealth and exploration of a post-human Earth. It is developed by The Bearded Ladies, a team made up of former Hitman and Payday developers among others. Based on the Swedish pen and paper RPG Mutant, the game puts you in the hooves of Bormin the boar and the webbed feet of Dux the duck as they explore a post-human Earth.
Finally, Funcom also announced that a retail Deluxe Edition will also release on the 25th of June for Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Available to purchase for $39.99, the Deluxe Edition will include both the base game and the expansion DLC.
