According to Neowin, this latest free game offered by Epic Games Store offers a turn-based combat experience with gameplay similar to the XCOM series. Taking place in a post-apocalyptic world where only mutants survive, gamers will control three characters at once with special abilities to explore abandoned areas, while consuming Kill enemies with a combination of stealth and firepower.
Mutant Year Zero Road to Eden is the next free game offered by Epic Games Store
The game divides the map into small independent areas like a scene, each of which will have a group of monsters with different types of resources. Due to limited resources, players must carefully calculate the number of resources they have to use correctly. Each time the team members level up, they will have a fixed number of points, which gamers can use to upgrade their health or learn different skills.
Note that, when leveling up the game only gives points, not increases the stats, so the strength of the characters depends mainly on the weapon in use.
In the description of the game, the Epic Games Store says, “When the world was destroyed, the Earth remained. Nature has invaded ruined cities. The wind blew through the empty streets, turning into graveyards. Humans have disappeared. What remains of civilization are mutants and animals looking for a chance to survive or simply looking for something to eat. In order to survive, you and your companions must venture out to explore areas.”
It is known that the regular price of Mutant Year Zero Road to Eden is $35. The promotion for free Mutant Year Zero Road to Eden on Epic Games Store will last until 11pm on December 23, before being replaced by another game. Therefore gamers should take advantage of this period, if not paying $25 for the game in the Epic Games Store’s ongoing sale, before it returns to its regular price.
Besides, to play the game, gamers must island their system with the minimum hardware including Windows 7 64 bit; CPU Intel Core i5-760 or AMD Phenom II X4 965; RAM 6 GB; Nvidia GTX 580/AMD Radeon HD 7870 (DirectX 11) graphics and 8 GB available space.
