The one noteworthy announcement to come out of the 505 Games Showcase for PlayStation owners is here: Miasma Chronicles, the next game from Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden developer The Bearded Ladies. It's launching for PS5 in 2023 — there's no PS4 version — and will once again be a turn-based tactical experience that sees you carefully choosing your moves and opportunities to open fire.
Much has apparently been learnt from the team's two previous development efforts, with many elements said to be expanded in Miasma Chronicles. Speaking in the Q&A section of a press briefing, a spokesperson said the characters and world building will be important parts of Miasma Chronicles. "We also made a big effort to make the game playable by a wider audience without losing what makes our games special. We also took note of feedback both externally and internally to make the gameplay even tighter than in our previous offerings."
In our Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden PS4 review, we awarded the tactical title a 6/10. "Hardcore genre fanatics are sure to get a kick out of proceedings, but those looking for a more introductory take on things will find more frustration than progress." Let's hope The Bearded Ladies deliver an improved experience this time around.
