Mutant Year Zero Road to Eden

Funcom’s Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden has received some interesting new content on PC with Stalker Trials. If you own the turn-based tactical strategy game on Steam, then simply patch it to receive the free content. The developer has also announced the removal of DRM, along with other fixes.

As for Stalker Trials, it’s essentially a challenge mode of sorts. The existing maps have received new enemy types and challenges to complete. While your skills will be tested, every character, mutation, and skill is available. Head over to the Zone and meet Pripp the bartender whenever possible – he’ll provide updates on your performance.

Perform specific actions and Pripp will bestow bonuses and multipliers. Leaderboards are also enabled, so you can measure your success against other players. Those who top the weekly and all-time leaderboards will get a special NPC with their name that others can hunt down. Check out the full patch notes for the update below:
