We have officially launched the first expansion to the tactical adventure game Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden! This expansion, titled Seed of Evil, continues where the original story left off in the adventures of mutant Stalkers Dux, Bormin, Selma, Magnus and Farrow.
The expansion is out now on PC, Xbox and Nintendo Switch, with PS4 to follow in a few days.
After the end of Road to Eden, a new threat arises. Gigantic crimson vines are wrapping around the scaffolding and ramshackle buildings of the Zone’s last safe haven. Bormin once again takes his team into the irradiated Zone to find and eliminate the source of the threat, but this time he’s got some extra help: The veteran Stalker Big Khan.
4 new features in Mutant Year Zero: Seed of Evil
Seed of Evil continues the gameplay style from Road to Eden, with tactical turn-based combat combined with real-time exploration and stealth, but expands the options you have when choosing your team and their skills. It is, after all, an expansion! Here are 4 new things in Seed of Evil:
- More content: Seed of Evil takes place in an entirely new area of the Zone. Explore new maps and defeat the new plant based Pod Ghouls, who will attack you with mutations of their own. As you explore you’ll also find new weapons and armor, which will be of great help to you.
- A new Stalker enters the fray: Big Khan the moose is a legendary Stalker who left the Ark years ago for unknown reasons. He teams up with Bormin, Dux, and the rest of the team to fight the new threat and keep the Ark safe. Khan’s size and strength make him an excellent fighter, capable of landing highly damaging critical hits against enemies.
- New mutations: We’re introducing a brand new mechanic in Seed of Evil that lets you upgrade certain existing mutations. Bormin’s Hug Rosh can become a mighty Bear Smash, with increased power, while Selma’s Tree Hugger can become a Tree Caster ability, which can temporarily turn enemies into cover for you to hide behind.
- Retake lost territory: Zone Ghouls, bots and other horrors are encroaching on places you’ve already cleared out in Road to Eden. This time around they’re stronger than ever and your Stalkers are tasked by the Ark with clearing them out.
Good luck out there, Stalkers!
