A mutated mammalian spin on the action RPG genre
Described as being an ‘open-world, post apocalyptic fable RPG’, Biomutant has players controlling an animal warrior who deals with six newly formed tribes emerging from The Tree of Life. The Tree of Life had been corrupted by a natural disaster that caused a societal collapse. Three tribes want to heal the tree, while the other half want to pursue their individual goals.
Featuring key RPG elements, such as the playable character being customisable in its appearance, gender, abilities and biomechanical body parts. Biomutant will also have a party based system, where NPC companions will journey alongside you in your quest. Branching storylines and interactivity with NPCs in the open-world can determine story progression is another prominent feature in the game.
Published by THQ Nordic and developed by Experiment 101, Biomutant is set for release on May 25, 2021 for PC, Xbox One and PS4.
