THQ Nordic Announces Experiment 101’s Kung Fu Fable BIOMUTANT
Combine Mutant Powers, Bionics and Weapons in This Original Action RPG, Coming 2018
THQ Nordic and independent developer Experiment 101 have revealed BIOMUTANT, a new and original open-world action RPG for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC. Explore a world in turmoil and define its fate – will you be the hero and savior or lead it to an even darker destiny?
The following footage is from a gameplay demo at Gamescom 2017.
BIOMUTANT’s unique design lets players change their character’s abilities and appearance with powerful mutations, bionic prosthetics and weapons. Grow claws, sprout wings, or attach a robotic leg – each choice will impact the way your hero plays in real-time combat that blends melee martial arts and firearms.
Set in an imaginative post-apocalyptic universe, BIOMUTANT is a kung fu fable filled with fantastic creatures to discover, dangerous factions to navigate, and colorful worlds to explore with mechs, paragliders, balloons, mounts, jet skis and more.
BIOMUTANT is expected to launch in 2018.
The game will be playable at the THQ Nordic Booth at gamescom as well as at PAX West. For the latest updates as it develops, visit www.biomutant.com
