Default Corruption 2029 - Dystopian Tactics Game

February 8th, 2020, 08:47
PC Gamer reports on the next game from Bearded Ladies, who made Mutant Year Zero. Corruption 2029 is a tactics game where you play super soldiers trying to free America. The game will launch on the Epic Game Store.

The sci-fi soldiers, angular helmets and dystopian setting make it look a bit more XCOM than Mutant Year Zero, but the latter's focus on stealth will apparently be returning. One of the best parts of Mutant Year Zero was setting up before a fight, scouting and finding sniper spots or other ways you can get the drop on the enemy, and you'll be able to do the same in Corruption 2029.

It looks like the squad will be sent into discrete missions, just like XCOM, rather than exploring the world in real-time, like Mutant Year Zero. What you do between missions, growing your squad, upgrading them--that's still a mystery.

Looks like reskinned MYZ. With the same mechanics. Didn't like the sneak-puzzles, so I will likely pass if it is the same here (which it looks like).

Hmmm, I thought Mutant Year Zero was a great game, in part because the setting and characters were pretty cool. I'll keep an eye on this but my immediate reaction is it feels too much like XCOM in terms of the setting/vibe.

I hope they're going to do more with Mutant Year Zero.

They did a good job on Mutant Year Zero so i have high hope for this one; but being an epic exclusive i'll have to wait till they patch it up to consider it.

Aye, that's the only thing that's kept me away from Mutant Year Zero to date, that it's an Epic exclusive. I'll likely acquire the game within a week of it landing on either great old games or steam, and I'm also going to assume that this newest offering is also likely to be an exclusive initially, so I'll be in no great rush to acquire it early, nor reward a company for that type of behaviour.

I must have them completely confused with some other product, my apologies. Perhaps I had too much bubbly last night!

Mutant Duck Zero had bad GUI, lamely executed, boring combat with badly designed mechanics. I couldn't ZOOM IN to see the amazing details of their very nicely done forest map. Mutant Duck Zero felt like a nicely done birthday cake held out of my reach behind a glass so I couldn't eat it.
