First announced in 2017, Biomutant has been on our most anticipated games list since 2019— and it’s finally here! This “open-world, post-apocalyptic Kung-Fu fable RPG” is the result of a small development team with big dreams (and the backing of big publisher THQ Nordic).
Biomutant is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S (and on sale now in the CDKeys store).
Unite the Tribes or Die Trying
Imagine an exotic world that’s free of humans but filled with furry little animals. Now imagine many of these animals as badass warriors armed to the teeth with swords, guns, jetpacks, and other strange weaponry. That’s Biomutant.
In this 3rd-person action-RPG, you’ll play as one of said badass animals in an open-world adventure that’s undeniably fresh and original. Character customization, tribal factions, detailed crafting and enemies are as diverse as the biomes in which you’ll find them.
Features and Gameplay
Freedom and options are essential to Biomutant’s gameplay. And the game provides a wide selection of RPG mechanics to allow you to fight, explore, craft, and shape the narrative in whatever way you see fit.
Looking for a little more explanation as to what makes Biomutant so unique? Art & Creative Director Stefan Ljungqvist will tell you all about it against a backdrop of gameplay in the video above. And below, you’ll find a list of Biomutant’s key features. For system requirements (and even more info) check out Biomutant’s store page.
A New Take On 3rd Person Combat
The martial arts style combat system allows you maximum freedom of movement and agility while mixing shooting, melee and powers from your mutations. Learning new Wung-Fu combat forms through progression and learning from masters you’ll meet, will constantly add to your choices and make sure combat never gets old.
Evolve Your Game-Play
You’ll be able to re-code your genetic structure to change the way you look and play. This will of course affect your attributes and in addition to this, exposure to bio-contamination in the world will lead to mutations like the Turtleform and Mucus Bubble, while exposure to radioactivity found in bunkers from the old world will affect your mind and unlock psi-mutations like telekinesis, levitation and more.
Next Level of Crafting
You are totally free when crafting weapons. Mix and match parts to create your own unique 1H or 2H slash and crush weapons. Revolvers, rifles and shotguns can add modifications like cork-screws, battery-powered chainsaw modules, and even bio-contaminated sludge vials to your arsenal!
Gear up for Adventure
You are totally free when equipping your character. Not only when it comes to choosing weapons you created, but what type of gear you wear. Equip a gas-mask and an oxygen tank for exploring the Dead Zones, thermos-resistant clothes for venturing into cryonic areas or protective gear for taking on bio-contaminated creatures, the choice is up to you.
Survive in a Vibrant Open World
Explore the world and what lies beneath its surface, by foot, mech, jet-ski, air-balloon or area unique mounts. There are lots of discoveries to be made, mysteries to unravel, creatures to confront, and weird characters to meet in this vibrant and colourful world.
An Unusual Story With an Unusual End
Your actions play a major part in the unfolding of a story where End is coming to the New World. You are guided through the world by a Storyteller that narrates every step of your journey; but it’s your actions and choices that’ll decide how your story of survival ends.
