In a surprising move, Funcom has revealed that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden will be headed to Xbox Game Pass this December.
Xbox Game Pass has been an excellent option for those that can’t afford full price games the day of release. For Funcom, they’ve taken note of this and have revealed that their real-time exploration title with XCOM-like turn-based tactical combat (you can find out why here), something that could very well change the genre for the better, will be headed to Xbox Game Pass on Dec. 4th, 2018.
Along with the announcement, Funcom has also revealed that players that pre-order the Deluxe Edition on PC on the official Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden site can also experience the game in their own unique way: a 2-4 hour demo version of the game, which will get players seeing what all the hype is about.
Along with the announcements, you can also check out a newly released video for the game that features Mike Parker, Producer of Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden as he plays through an area of the game called the Scarplands, a place never before revealed (as seen at the bottom of the article). In the video, Mike uses stealth to his advantage, showing just how critical this mechanic can be as he takes on a boss of the Scraplands.
“We are absolutely thrilled about bringing Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden to XBOX Game Pass,” says Rui Casais, CEO of Funcom. “This is certainly not your standard console game and we think that XBOX Game Pass subscribers will find a unique and highly entertaining experience with Mutant Year Zero that they might not have discovered otherwise. We are very happy with the XBOX version of the game and the whole team is excited about Game Pass allowing us to reach an even wider audience on the console.”
The Bearded Ladies and Funcom have confirmed that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden will be running on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine and will be launching for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Pre-orders are available today.
