Mutant: Year Zero Launches Into Space with Ad Astra Expansion

Ad AstraMutant: Year Zero Launches Into Space!

New Expansion & Reprint of Mutant: Year Zero Core Books

Stockholm, Sweden (September 26, 2023) — Free League Publishing today announced the thrilling expansion, Ad Astra, for the award-winning post-apocalyptic tabletop RPG Mutant: Year Zero. Ad Astra takes the player characters from the devastated surface of Earth into orbit, out into the solar system, and perhaps further still.

A pre-order for Ad Astra has been launched at the Free League webshop and gives immediate early access to a full PDF ahead of the release early next year. In addition to Ad Astra, Free League today announced a reprint of all Mutant: Year Zero core books, including Mutant: Mechatron which has long been out of print.

Through the tiny portholes of the space capsule, you see the city hanging weightlessly beneath the stars –  like a huge hanging mobile over Earth, the poisoned cradle of humanity. Drawing closer, it becomes clear that there is something wrong with this star city. You float past large holes, torn wires, and cracked satellite dishes. It seems the Apocalypse reached all the way to the heavens.

Ad Astra can be played stand-alone or as a direct continuation of the Path to Eden campaign in the Mutant: Year Zero core rulebook. The campaign book also includes rules for playing Mutant: Year Zero in space and an overview of the solar system with ideas for further adventures.

Ad Astra is written by Jens Alm and illustrated by Kim W. Andersson, an award-winning comic book writer and artist. His works include Love Hurts, Astrid and Alena, the latter of which was adapted into a Swedish film of the same name.

About Mutant: Year Zero tabletop RPG
Mutant: Year Zero RPG takes you to the world after the great Apocalypse. Humanity’s proud civilization has fallen. The cities are dead wastelands, winds sweeping along empty streets turned into graveyards. But life ­remains. Among the ruins, the People live. You are the heirs of humanity – but not quite human anymore. Your bodies and minds are capable of superhuman feats. You are mutants.

Mutant: Year Zero is the reimagined version of the classic Swedish tabletop roleplaying game Mutant, first published in 1984. Mutant: Year Zero was the very first game created by Free League that was released to an international audience in 2014 and was an instant hit – it was named Best RPG at UK Games Expo 2015 and awarded a Silver ENNIE for Best Rules at Gen Con 2015. In 2018, Funcom released the video game adaptation Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden on multiple platforms, to great reviews.
