Mutant Year Zero_ Road to Eden - Nintendo Switch

During Epic Games’s keynote at the Game Developers Conference earlier today, Funcom and The Bearded Ladies announced that Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is making its way to the Switch.

The game will release for Switch on June 25, 2019 and will come with an expansion DLC, which will be available to purchase separately on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Check out the announcement trailer below.

The publisher also announced that a physical retail version of the game—dubbed the Deluxe Edition—will release on June 25 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, including the base game and the expansion. The retail edition will be co-published by Maximum Games, with a price point of USD$39.99.

“Ever since we started working on the game, we have always felt it would be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch,” said The Bearded Ladies CEO Haraldur Thormundsson. “The game lends itself really well to the Switch controls and the pacing of the tactical turn-based combat is perfect for an on-the-go, handheld console.”

OnlySP’s Amy Davidson reviewed the game for PlayStation 4, awarding it a Distinction (4/5) and stating that “The Bearded Ladies has created a clever, fresh take on the turn-based strategy genre”. Check out the full review here. Ben Newman recently spoke to the game’s composer, Robert Lundgren, about bringing the game’s defining features to life through music, and the full interview can be found here.

Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over six years with no means of escaping. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption (and its sequel), Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Cyberpunk 2077 Will Have Witcher-like Expansions

Published

CD Projekt Red’s UI Coordinator, Alvin Liu, spoke with Prima Games about the future of Cyberpunk 2077 and the possibility of post-launch expansions.

During E3 2019, co-founder of CD Projekt Red, Red Marcin Iwiński, briefly touched upon the existence of DLC plans for Cyberpunk 2077 by disclosing the project’s roadmap. Liu, however, now confirms that there are talks happening within the company about expansions despite the main focus still revolving around the base game. Liu also promises that Cyberpunk 2077 will have a satisfying conclusion that resolves the conflicts presented within the story and that nothing is being intentionally withheld in order to add it as DLC later.

“We want to make sure everything’s complete, but we also want to build open worlds. I know when I was playing The Witcher 3 and I finished everything, I still want to know what everyone was up to,” Liu said. “I think we’re going to have opportunities like that as well for Cyberpunk 2077.”

Liu explains that the expansions for The Witcher 3 helped flush out the open world by focusing on secondary characters from both the books and previous games. In terms of scale, the second and final expansion for The Witcher 3 was as big as the entirety of The Witcher 2, so the possible scope for Cyberpunk 2077‘s post-game content is limitless.
