The Bearded Ladies and Funcom released a brand new dev diary for their upcoming tactical RPG Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. The video focuses on how combat works in the game and how it was adapted from the pen and paper RPG.
Combat in Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden occurs in two phases. First is the real time phase that replicates exploration and storytelling, while the turn-based combat is meant to emulate dice rolling combat. When players encounter enemies in real time, they will be able to sneak around to set up the perfect ambush by putting characters in cover and knocking out important targets right off the bat. Players will need every advantage they can get in the challenging turn-based combat inspired by titles like XCOM.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on December 4th.
