Pixel Pandemic today announced the start of the open beta test for Mutant Badlands, formerly known as Radiated Wasteland, a post-apocalyptic browser-based MMORPG in which you will team up with your friends to survive the hordes of the post-apocalyptic monsters roaming the Earth. The storyline is set a few decades in the future. A giant comet has crashed into Earth causing massive destruction and turning what is left of the world into a giant radiated wasteland.
The player's character is a young adult, who has spent his/her entire life in the confines of Oasis 4, a sheltered underground village. This tiny community has survived for almost three decades, well-protected from the radioactive clouds that suffocated the surface of the earth. Although there has been news of other underground cities migrating to the surface, the people of Oasis 4 know that the surface world is rife with danger. Mutants and raiders rule the surface, and anyone who tries to pioneer into the wasteland is met with lethal opposition.
As the scavenging parties find fewer and fewer resources, Oasis 4 is faced with the difficult decision to finally migrate to the surface. You are among those sent to explore this strange new world and carve out a new path for your people.
