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, and follow the team on Facebook and Twitter.
