Combine Mutant Powers, Bionics and Weapons

THQ Nordic and independent developer Experiment 101 have revealed BIOMUTANT, along with the following announcement:

A new and original open-world action RPG. Explore a world in turmoil and define its fate – will you be the hero and savior or lead it to an even darker destiny?

HQ Nordic also stated that 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.

BIOMUTANT is expected to launch in 2018

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.”

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, and follow the team on Facebook and Twitter.

    Mushroom Wars 2 is a wonderful title to play and an amazing competition to watch.

The developers have been truly successful of creating the tools for a competitive player to use — and then getting the hell out of the way; Zillion Whales leaves us with a trendsetting, unrivaled masterpiece, and then lets us play it the way we want to play it.

  • Ayo: A Rain Tale Review

    Ayo shares with its audience a sincere message encapsulated by game, and continues the progression we have seen recently of video games used as a vehicle beyond the immediate capacity for ‘interactive entertainment.’ Despite a clunky camera and some problematic puzzles, this platformer boats a solid foundation, with promise of several hours of enlightening fun.

  • ELEX Review

    ELEX is an ode to fans of Gothic and Risen, and fans will most likely be satisfied. How detailed the title is makes it clear: Piranha Bytes isn’t trying to cash in on an aging franchise.  That being said, the issues cannot be brushed aside. It’s been nearly two decades since the studio published its first game, Gothic I, and what plagued the earlier titles plagues ELEX as well. And that, is a problem.
