Biomutant is the first game of Swedish game developer Experiment 101. It was established by ex Avalanche studio developers after working on the Just Cause series. Biomutant is an action role-playing game set in an open world that is filled with mutated animals. The game heavily banks on its RPG system which includes a detailed crafting system and mutation mechanics. Throughout the game, players gather different parts each boasting different statistics and add a different ability to the mix. These parts can be used to craft weapons or create bio-mechanical parts to be attached to different parts of the body. The game has branching storylines based on the decisions made by players.
In addition to the base edition, THQ Nordic also announced two editions for the enthusiasts. These include a collector’s edition and an atomic edition. The latter costs around $399.99/£349.99 and contains a physical copy of the game, detailed diorama, steelbook, t-shirt, mousepad, soundtrack, fabric artwork, and a premium box. The collector’s edition, however, costs $280 less and features the game, soundtrack, fabric artwork, and an action figure of the protagonist. All of these versions are available to pre-order now.
The studio has promised that more information related to the game’s features and mechanics will be showcased in the coming months.
