THQ Nordic Announces Experiment 101’s Kung Fu Fable BIOMUTANT

Combine mutant powers, bionics and weapons in this original action RPG from team led by former Mad Max and Just Cause game director. Coming 2018

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN / VIENNA, AUSTRIA - Aug. 22, 2017 - THQ Nordic and independent developer Experiment 101 have revealed BIOMUTANT, a new and original open-world action RPG for the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Explore a world in turmoil and define its fate – will you be the hero and saviour or lead it to an even darker destiny?

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, and follow the team on Facebook and Twitter.

feels like a game about Rocket. It's funny because Guardians of the Galaxy is also underneath this game. this presentation looked interesting and well detailed by the way.

    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (5 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (7 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (8 Hours ago)

    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (8 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (13 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX This is also the first Battlefield game that won't have expansions, which is something consumers asked for. (13 Hours ago)
