Funcom had revealed earlier this year during GDC that Mutant Year Zero would be getting its first DLC on June 25th as well as the Nintendo Switch release and physical versions for console. The expansion name Seed of Evil has been revealed along news that the launch date would be delayed along with the Switch release.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden – Seed of Evil Expansion, Physical Release and Nintendo Switch Version Delayed
The XCOM inspired Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden also drew its inspiration from the Swedish tabletop RPG of the same name. It released at the end of last year culminating its own community of fans. It combines stealth and combat into a RPG strategy. With a cast of wonderfully quirky animal mutant characters, the adventure takes place in a post-apocalyptic world.
The title was set to release on the Nintendo Switch but has gotten a slight delay in release, now launching on July 30th. This will also be the same date when their first DLC expansion Seed of Evil will release.
Seed of Evil takes place where the game left off, bringing news maps and a new challenge for the group of misfits. The trailer reveals a new playable character to help assist challenges by the name of Big Khan, a moose with two new mutations Ground Pound and Flame Puke. There also seems to be something rather strange going on, what Big Khan calls “Pod Ghouls” who are replacing the original Ghouls with copies. The trailer gives off a Stranger Things kind of vibe and looks to be a fun new expansion.
You can watch the trailer and screenshots below:
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden – Seed of Evil will priced be at $14.99 USD/£12.99 when it releases on Steam on July 30th. Those who want to pick up both the game and DLC can purchase the Deluxe Edition of Mutant Year Zero, available digitally and in store.
