Fans of videogames often bemoan the industry because of a perceived lack of new IP from developers. Their feeling is that many of them seem to continue to just rehash the same old tired gaming tropes over and over. Well, THQ Nordic is stepping out on a limb and bringing a totally new open-world action RPG to consoles very soon.
The gaming company that brought us titles Battle Chasers: Nightwar, Sine Mora EX and Spellforce 3 announced today that their new game Biomutant, a new and original open-world action RPG for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, will allow you to explore a world in turmoil and define its fate.
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’s unique design lets players change their character’s abilities and appearance with powerful mutations, bionic prosthetics and weapons. You can 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.
While THQ Nordic haven’t revealed a specific launch date as of yet, they did report that Biomutant is expected to launch sometime in 2018. Check out the cool reveal trailer below. I’m actually excited for this one and am hoping that it plays as cool as it looks.
