Biomutant from THQ Nordic is described as a "open-word, post-apocalyptic Kung-Fu fable RPG". As per the norm these days when it comes to THQ Nordic, they were so impressed with the project that they bought developer Experiment 101. And it's not hard to see why. Sure, performance-wise it may need some work but it's hard not be impressed by just how different and fun Biomutant looks.
The new gameplay trailer is more random compilation of footage than anything else, but it's still worth a watch. Check it out.
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.
EVOLVE YOUR GAME-PLAY: You’ll be able to recode your genetic structure to change the way you look and play.
NEXT LEVEL OF CRAFTING: Mix and match parts to create your own unique single- or double-handed slash, crush and pierce melee weapons.
GEAR UP FOR ADVENTURE: You have full freedom when equipping your character. Not only when it comes to choosing weapons you created, but also what type of gear you wear.
SURVIVE IN A VIBRANT OPEN WORLD: You’ll create your own adventure as you journey explore the open world and what lies beneath its surface, by foot, mech, jet-ski, air-balloon and more.
AN UNUSUAL STORY WITH AN UNUSUAL END: A plague is ruining the land and the Tree-of-Life is bleeding death from its roots. The Tribes stand divided, in need of someone strong enough to unite them or bring them all down...
The martial arts aspect in particular looks awesome, being able to dash to a large rock-face and then dash across it to reach a few faraway places. There's also a streak of weirdness to the visuals that is hard to shake, from the expansive open-world setting to the almost fairy tale-like characters. One to keep an eye on.
