Arguably one of THQ Nordic’s most interesting upcoming titles, BioMutant sees players assume the role of the menacing-looking furry creature pictured above as they attempt to save the world and Tree-of-Life from an encroaching plague.
The game blends martial arts combat, shooting, and a variety of mutant abilities to form the core of its combat, and will have players utilizing them all in fast-paced combos to take down the enemies that stand in their way.
Heck, you’ll even be able to re-code your genetic structure to completely change how your character looks and plays, which, in turn, affects your attributes.
And if that wasn’t enough, any time you become exposed to any bio-contaminated or radiated areas of the world, you’ll sprout some kind of physical mutation or psi-mutations.
There’s a whole lot going on in terms of your characters ever-changing attributes and combat systems, and we can’t wait to get our hands on the full title.
Alas, all of this open world, gene-morphing goodness hasn’t properly been talked about in a while. The last we saw was a 30-minute gameplay chunk dating back to Gamescom last year.
Considering BioMutant is due to release at some point in 2019, it’s a little concerning it hasn’t been talked about more already this year.
Here’s hoping we get some more gameplay demos and a set release date at E3 so we can dive into this intriguing title for ourselves sooner rather than later.
