THQ Nordic has unveiled some really beautiful new screenshots from its upcoming open-world action RPG title, BioMutant. BioMutant is a kung fu fable full of fantastic creatures to discover and dangerous factions to navigate. The game will also have colorful worlds to explore with mechs, paragliders, balloons, mounts, jet skis and more.
BioMutant is developed from the former Mad Max and Just Cause game director, Stefan Ljungqvist, and will come with a unique design. This new design promises to let players change their character’s abilities and appearance with powerful mutations, bionic prosthetics and weapons.
The game will also feature real-time combat mechanics, an automation sidekick and a ceative crafting system. BioMutant also promises to feature multiple endings, and will offer at least 10 hours of gameplay. As co-founder and head of Studio at Experiment 101, Stefan Ljungqvist, said:
“We’re really trying to encourage replays through our “open way” of completing the game…You are playing as the world is dying and the chance of world survival is represented by a massive tree-of-life that stands at the center of the world with its roots stretching out across the land. As a player, you have the option to heal the tree and such, increasing the chance of world survival at the end of the game. You can end the game without healing the tree; however, your personal end of the game that time will be that the world dies, so kind of a dark ending in some player’s preference.
But if you chose to work to heal the tree of life, you’ll have to find some small spiritual creatures. These creatures are Nono. Nono hide in glitter grass found in the open world and leading them to the root segments. That’ll increase the chance of world survival by a couple of percent per Nono. Or/and you can chose to confront and defeat the huge creature gnawing at the end of each root and this will heal that root completely. Healing all roots will give you a hundred percent chance of world survival at the end of your game – and some players will obviously want to go for that bright ending.”
The following screenshots will give you an idea of the colorful environments that the game will feature. THQ Nordic plans to release BioMutant in 2018.
Enjoy and kudos to RAMPAGA for bringing these screenshots to our attention!
