Funcom announced that players can play their tactical adventure game Mutant Year Zero earlier if they pre-order the PC Deluxe Edition now.
Those who purchase the PC Deluxe Edition will be able to play the first 2 – 4 hours of the game; I guess this depends on how quickly you progress through the game’s early missions. This will be an early way for players to get acquainted with the game’s unique tactical gameplay that fuses adventure and strategy to create an interesting gameplay collaboration. Basically, players are able to explore the post-apocalyptic world searching for materials and ammo but then switch to a turn-based tactics mode when encountering an enemy.
Additionally, the game will launch on December 4 as a part of Xbox Games Pass for subscribers of the service.
“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 team also released a new trailer showing a detailed walkthrough of the Scraplands area.
Mutant Year Zero will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on December 4.

Author’s take: This game looks great; I’m interested in seeing how the developers weave the story of the game into the battles so that they each feel almost hopeless in this world and I’m left strategically planning my every move.
