Seed of Evil is the first expansion to Mutant Year Zero and a direct continuation of the story presented in the game. Again, we will direct the fate of a group of mutants, with new secrets to solve, opponents to defeat and locations to visit. Bearded Ladies is responsible for the game.

Plot

The action of Seed of Evil takes place directly after the events of the basic game. We will find out how the Stalkers coped with the knowledge gained at the very end of the game and how it affected them. Now, however, Dux, Bormin, Selma and others have to solve another riddle, concerning the mysterious roots entangling the Ark, their mother base. Especially since the roots threaten the lives of inhabitants of the Ark and Ghouls living in the area, changing them beyond recognition. It is on our shoulders to discover what lies behind this unique form of vegetation and find ways to stop its negative effects.

Mechanics

The mainstay of Seed of Evil remains the same. We are still exploring various locations, collecting items, which we can later use to improve our equipment (by upgrading its parts or replacing it with a new one), we fight in turn-based battles against monsters and crazy individuals encountered on our way.

This add-on gives us an option to add a new Mutant to our team. It is the experienced Big Khan who, as a result of the mutation, has taken on the appearance of a moose. He prefers a lonely lifestyle and is skilled in moving around the Zone. It has a unique mutation in the form of Ground Pound and Puke Flame, and specializes in critical hits. All this makes him a perfect hero for group battles.

New improvements are waiting for the Mutants known from the basic version of the game. For example, we can improve Dux's ability from Moth Wings to Wings of the Sniper, which removes all range penalties from shots when flying. We can also improve the Corpse Eater ability, enabling us to eat the bodies of fallen enemies and restore life points at the expense of action points. Now, however, this ability can evolve in the Corpse Feaster, so recovering HP no longer costs an action point. There are many more such abilities in the game.

In the game we visit various locations. We will return to well-known ones such as Spear of Heaven and The Sea Titans, which since our last visit have become home to much more powerful Ghouls and police bots. However, we are also facing completely new locations, such as the Hall of Electric Coffins and the Mausoleum of Suburbia. We will encounter a new kind of opponents who require us to use unusual tactics.

Technical aspects

Mutant Year Zero: Seed of Evil invariably shows a post-apocalyptic picture that is softened by the black humor of the Mutants.
