"A tactical adventure game with turn-based combat and real-time exploration of a post-apocalyptic world, Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden puts you in command of a unique squad of mutant soldiers as you scavenge through the remains of civilisation to survive. From the creators of Hitman and PayDay, experience a mix of story, exploration, stealth, and strategy in the brutal environment of a decimated planet Earth as your band of heroes embark on a quest to discover the legend of Eden."

TACTICAL COMBAT: Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden is the ultimate fix for your tactical strategy addiction. Dive into a deep, turn-based, tactical combat system inspired by the XCOM game.

EXPLORE A POST-HUMAN EARTH: Journey through a post-human world of abandoned cities, crumbling highways, and overgrown countryside. Check back at the Ark, a neon-bathed oasis of ill repute and questionable characters, to restock your supplies and plan out your next adventure.

CONTROL A TEAM OF MUTANTS: A duck with an attitude problem and a boar with anger issues; these aren’t your typical heroes. Get to know Dux, Bormin, Selma, and many other characters each with their own unique personality and deranged perspective on the world and their situation.

MASTER THE STEALTHY APPROACH: Sneak through shadows to avoid conflict or to catch enemies unaware. Real-time stealth allows you full control of approach: sneak into an enemy camp, position the team of Mutants to your advantage, and gain the element of surprise.

UNLOCK MUTATIONS: Unlock new mutations and abilities for your Mutants, such as Selma’s Stoneskin, Bormin’s Charge, and Dux‘ uncanny ability to sneak into a camp full of enemies unnoticed, despite being a 4-foot tall walking, talking duck with a crossbow.

DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT: Use the environment to your advantage. Stay out of floodlights, hide from line of sight, or just blast down fully destructible walls and buildings and wreak utter havoc.

LOOT, LOOT EVERYWHERE: From makeshift slingshots to high-powered rifles and top hats to police vests, make sure you equip your Mutants for the dangers ahead. Nothing says post-human quite like a mutated boar in spiked metal armor charging at you with a blunderbuss in his hands.

It's a new release that won't be covered by a lot of content creators because it's not on AAA radar. Most likely you'll to be in the top of the twitch directory for the game (If people on twitch are interested in the game you'll be the number one stop for it)  It's got turn based combat which I know you enjoy. It's got great looking characters and locations; nice art direction overall.

I'm 8 hours in to Mutant Year Zero and quite liking it. The combination of exploration and gathering with X-COM style turn based combat works well, especially with the stealth and ambush elements. Story and characters are fairly interesting and the environments and atmosphere are great. So far currency and upgrades feel scarce so you really need to consider your choices, as it should be considering the setting. Main complaint is that sometimes enemies can shoot you when they shouldn't (like through a solid object they are standing on) or you can't shoot enemies when you feel like you should be able to. Other than that it's a solid game, well worth the $35 already. 

FWIW, it's around 80% with both fans and critics on Steam and Metacritic.
