THQ Nordic has announced a brand new IP at Gamescom, an open-world RPG titled Biomutant.
The Tree of Life is in danger, a plague is spreading through out the land causing neighbouring tribes to go to war with one another. It is your job to bring these tribes together in an attempt to fight back a sinister evil.
Welcome to the world of Biomutant, a “kung-fu fable” type action RPG developed by Experiment 101 and published by THQ Nordic. Biomutant takes place in a post-apocalyptic universe filled with humanoid-like animals. This open-world action RPG focuses on combat and exploration across at least 3 unique worlds.
In Biomutant, you can customise your character through a number of different upgrades. Robotic attachments, mutations and weapons spanning from katana-like swords to machine guns; Biomutant encourages experimentation. A diverse number of player options makes the character customisation comparable to that of an MMO.
Centered around a third person perspective, combat is a combination of shooting, martial arts, and melee attacks. All of which will be determined by the mutations you apply to you character. Weapons will also be customizable in this fashion letting you construct whatever you need for your current situation.
Exploration is another critical factor in Biomutant. World traversal is as open as the environment themselves. From exploring on foot, to jet skis, to mechs, to a freaking UFO, uncovering the mysteries of the world around you has never been so diverse!
But why listen to me? The trailer says it all; check it out below!
