Turn-based strategy fans will be all-to-aware The Bearded Ladies could be cooking up something pretty special with Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden. The tactical strategy game takes combat cues from XCOM but also includes full-blown exploration and stealth between combat segments, providing a more story-based, adventure experience. That and you can play as a shotgun-toting duck. MYZ: Road to Eden is coming to PC this December, but in the meantime here are the official PC system specs for Mutant Year Zero so you can make sure you're good and ready.

Funcom has set a wide bar for Mutant Year Zero's system requirements, stretching from low-end minimum specs up to a set of recommended requirements that align fairly neatly with modern game demands.

Down at the low-end, the minimum suggested CPUs for MYZ: Road to Eden are positively ancient. Either a first-gen Intel Core i5-760 or AMD Phenom II X4 965 should do the job. Just about any modern processor can compete with these two, and most offer performance far in excess. They'll need to be paired with a video card with at least 1.5GB of VRAM, such as the GTX 580 or Radeon HD 7870. Something a little more accessible for today's users would be the GTX 750 Ti or Radeon R7 270, neither of which should run into much trouble when playing Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden.

If you are hoping to max out the graphics settings in Mutant Year Zero though, then you will need a considerably more powerful system. The ever-reliable GeForce GTX 970 will do the trick, or a Radeon RX 480 4GB if you're that way inclined. The recommended CPU requirements for MYZ: RTE are huge though, but this could well help with speeding up AI turn times. It's unlikely to have a major impact on Mutant Year Zero's frame rate though, so don't worry if you're hovering between the minimum and recommended spec processors.


Ah, and one final thing for you FCKDRM aficionados out there - Mutant Year Zero will use Denuvo Anti-Tamper DRM for its copy protection. Take that for what it's worth, although these days we understand it only has a negligible impact on performance. There are many other reasons to oppose Denuvo of course, but it shouldn't really affect MYZ: Road to Eden's frame rates.
