Mutant Year Zero: Seed of Evil is now out on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. We’ve also launched Road to Eden on Nintendo Switch, which is our first Switch release ever.

Mutant Year Zero: Seed of Evil

Windows Central – This expansion makes a great game even better

Windows Central slapped Seed of Evil with a Recommended badge and a 4.5/5 , saying the expansion “offers a plethora of fun new content to enjoy that any fan of Mutant Year Zero will love”:

If you enjoyed the base game, than you’d be crazy not to buy this expansion. It takes everything that Mutant Year Zero does so well and expands upon it tremendously.

IGN – Seed of Evil retains the nail-biting, tough-as-nails tactical experience

Seed of Evil got an 8/10 from IGN’s Mike Epstein, who called it “an expansion in its simplest, most direct form: there’s simply more of it”:

Mutant Year Zero: Seed of Evil is more Mutant Year Zero, plain and simple. Though its attempts to evolve the mechanics and systems aren’t particularly successful (with the exception of your new fire-breathing moose companion), planning and plowing through enemies remains satisfying.

Mike Epstein,

Entertainium – A good excuse to jump back into Mutant Year Zero

Eduardo Reboucas from Entertainium found himself enamored by Seed of Evil and the new content:

Funcom and The Bearded Ladies struck gold with Mutant Year Zero, and it’s fantastic to have another reason to jump back in thanks to Seed of Evil […] If you enjoyed the base game as much as I did, you’ve probably been biting at the chance to keep playing, and Seed of Evil more than satisfies that itch.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden on Switch

Nintendo Life – Duck and cover

While critical of the game’s visual, Nintendo Life gave Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden on Nintendo Switch an 8/10, calling it a great addition to the genre:

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is one of the best additions to the tactical RPG genre years; a well-written and rewarding experience that combines the creative use of stealth found in the legacy of its ex-Hitman developers with a world that’s full of interesting characters and ideas. Almost every game in this genre lives in the shadow of XCOM, but Mutant offers enough new ideas to set itself apart.

Dom Reseigh-Lincoln,

Metro – Very a-moose-ing

UK web magazine Metro gave Road to Eden on the Switch another 8/10, saying that Seed of Evil adds more content to an already great game:

More than just XCOM with talking animals, this inventive strategy game has plenty of new ideas of its own
