Follow the mutants, animals, and robots of the Zone as they struggle to turn the Rot-infested wasteland into a new dawnland, threatened by a new shadowy enemy who could be the end of them all…

Mutant Year Zero: Zone Wars is all about embracing mayhem and emergent narrative to create a fun and fast-flowing experience. Designed by Andy Chambers (Necromunda, Battlefleet Gothic, Warhammer Fantasy Battle, Dropzone Commander) with Tomas Härenstam (Mutant: Year Zero, ALIEN RPG, Twilight: 2000, Blade Runner RPG, Dragonbane) and Nils Karlén (Coriolis: The Third Horizon, Forbidden Lands).

Sculpted by veteran sculptors Alejandro Muñoz Martín and Daniel BlueIce, the miniatures are made in 32 mm format and require no assembly. As a standard, they are sundropped at the factory, meaning that they will be table-ready right out of the box.

The Robots & Psionics expansion will release alongside the core game and expand the game with two more factions, allowing up to four players to engage in multi-faction mayhem!

The Mutant: Year Zero – Zone Wars pre-order has been launched today in the Free League webshop.

Mutant Year Zero: Zone Wars is compatible with the award-winning Mutant: Year Zero tabletop roleplaying game; bring your favorite roleplaying character onto the battlefield or continue the Zone Wars scenarios in the RPG.

The Rules

The game rules are easy to grasp and makes for a fast-playing experience.

You can push yourself for a re-roll, increasing your chances but risking damage to your weapon in the process.

The initiative systems keeps all players constantly on their toes, and powerful mutations and robot modules can turn the balance quickly even for a losing faction. Zone cards are drawn to represent the many dangers of the Zone, which can mean the ruin of even the most hardened Stalker!
