Mutant: Year Zero Goes To Space With New Expansion: ‘Ad Astra’

Share This Post

Through the tiny portholes of the space capsule, you see the city hanging weightlessly beneath the stars –  like a huge hanging mobile over Earth, the poisoned cradle of humanity. Drawing closer, it becomes clear that there is something wrong with this star city. You float past large holes, torn wires, and cracked satellite dishes. It seems the Apocalypse reached all the way to the heavens.

Free League Publishing today announced the thrilling expansion Ad Astra for the post apocalyptic tabletop RPG Mutant: Year Zero. Ad Astra takes the player characters from the devastated surface of Earth into orbit, out into the solar system, and perhaps further still.

Ad Astra book cover

Ad Astra can be played stand-alone or as a direct continuation of the Path to Eden campaign in the Mutant: Year Zero core rulebook. The campaign book also includes rules for playing Mutant: Year Zero in space and an overview of the solar system with ideas for further adventures.



Ad Astra is written by Jens Alm and illustrated by Kim W. Andersson, award-winning comic book writer and artist. His works include Love Hurts, Astrid and Alena, the latter of which was adapted into a Swedish film of the same name.


A pre-order for Ad Astra has been launched at the Free League webshop and gives immediate early access to a full PDF ahead of the release early next year. In addition to Ad Astra, Free League today announced a reprint of all Mutant: Year Zero core books, including Mutant: Mechatron which has long been out of print.
