THQ Nordic’s upcoming open-world game Biomutant is a little mysterious, as we haven’t heard much if anything about it since its announcement during Gamescom 2017. But now, thanks to IGN, we have 11 minutes of gameplay footage from the Gamescom 2017 show floor that demonstrates how the open-world action RPG plays as well as how as its protagonist uses martial arts to kick the bad guys’ butts.
The feline hero zips around using shooter elements, special abilities, and melee moves to complete missions, and you can customize your hero to your liking as well. It’s an intriguing mixture of several types of gameplay, and hulking enemies that can either be taken down by bashing them until they fall or taking a much more studied appraoch. I was a fan of the comic book-like sound effects at certain intervals like the classic “Wham!” and whatnot that appeared by the protagonist’s and enemies’ heads.
Biomutant is currently slated for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in early 2018, but you can take in a good chunk of gameplay in the video below.
