Mutant Year Zero is a new XCom/Stealth RPG Hybrid published by Funcom and developed by The Bearded Ladies Consulting. It combines the tactical combat of XCom with some RPG elements, exploration and even stealth that isn't obnoxious.

Launch trailer!



GiantBomb has a reasonably in-depth QuickLook that should give you a good idea of what the game is:



It's available on PC, XBox and PS4. If you have Xbox Game Pass you can play it for free right now!

    I saw GiantBomb's QL of this and grabbed it on XBox Game Pass and I've been having a great time with it. The combat blends really well with the world exploration and encounters tend to be relatively compact. The blend of the combat, exploration, looting and light stealth is a killer mix for me. It's not perfect, I hear it can be a bit linear, but so far I'm having an excellent time. This has been a surprise gem.

    I played it for about an hour and a half. UI is a little rough around the edges but serviceable. Cover is significantly more powerful than it is in Xcom. I found it to be just a little too slow and clunky compared to just playing more Xcom.

    Yeah, the combat isn't as good as XCom...it's the blending of all the other stuff that makes it unique to me. I like XCom, but I can get very bored with the long battle treadmill of some XCom play throughs. This breaks up the tactical combat with other moment to moment activities which is a plus for me.

    Grabbed this from Gamepass and finally sat down to play it today. It's super neat!

    Yeah, I played it most of the weekend. I'm really enjoying it so far. It doesn't seem to be terribly long (which I'm fine with), so I'm hoping to finish it over my works Christmas break.

    I'd been having a lot of fun with this for the first few hours, but as the game progresses enemy HP scales up so fast that the whole stealth element becomes useless pretty quick, which is frustrating.
