The mysterious assassin, Farrow, takes center stage in the latest trailer for publisher Funcom’s turn-based strategy game.
Farrow is just one of the recruitable characters players will come cross while playing Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. As assumed from the trailer above, Farrow specializes in stealth and assassination, and possess skills, abilities, and weapons geared toward sneaking, movement, and high critical damage.
Using a unique skill called ‘Silent Assassin’, Farrow is able to quietly dispatch foes by imparting a double critical strike while hidden. She can also combine ‘Silent Assassin’ with special items and unique boosts to devastating effect. Farrow is the only Stalker who can boost her critical strike rate in this way, making her a huge asset, and excellent for picking off stragglers in battle.
Developed by The Bearded Ladies, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is an XCOM-style turn-based strategy game, with a heavy emphasis on tactics, story and exploration. The Bearded Ladies boasts former designers from the Hitman and Payday series. In Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, players control a team of mutants as they scavenge through the shattered remains of a devastated, post-human version of Earth.
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is scheduled for release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on December 5, 2018. The game is definitely a bit of a unique take on the genre with much more emphasis placed on individual characters, their backstories and abilities.
