THQ’s latest game Biomutant leaked through a German magazine over the weekend, and the company went ahead and owned up on the leak, confirming its existence with a sweet reveal trailer.
The open world game takes place in the far, post-apocalyptic future, but instead of the generic Fallout setting you’ve become accustomed to, this game features kung-fu, giant monsters, ample green overgrowth, and most importantly, an adorable cast of cuddly, badass animals.
Biomutant is a post-apocalyptic open-world action role-playing game that delivers real-time melee, shooter and mutant ability action. Replayability by varied and deep character progression, exploration of three systematically generated worlds, an underworld and a small solar system, by foot, mech, air-balloon, jetski and UFO. Biomutant also features a fully customizable (MMO style) character and mutation system, bionics and creative item crafting, plus an interactive narrative featuring a contextual storyteller where the players create their own story of survival in a vibrant colourful world.
Biomutant is set in a post-apocalyptic universe filled with mechs, paragliders, balloons, mounts, jet skis and dangerous animals. It’s developed by Experiment 101, a Swedish studio co-founded by Stefan Ljungqvist, a former studio art director and game director at Avalanche Studios and one of the key members on the team behind Mad Max and the Just Cause series.
Biomutant will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2018
