BioMutant — remember that? — gets a launch date for PS4, Xbox One

BioMutant lastly has a launch date. THQ Nordic’s “open-world, post-apocalyptic kung fu fable” shows up May 25, 2021 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One.

Initially due in 2018, BioMutant is established by Experiment 101, which Avalanche Studios’ previous imaginative director, Stefan Ljungqvist, established in 2015. THQ Nordic is the video game’s publisher. In BioMutant, gamers can customize their character with bionic prosthetics, effective anomalies, and cool weapons, all of which amp up the video game’s martial arts battle system.

We got a hands-on take a look at BioMutant at PAX West in 2018, right around the time Experiment 101’s main site for the video game went peaceful. (It returned with a quick launch statement on Tuesday.) The player-designed protagonist character will handle a mix of animal functions according to the characteristics users provide. In BioMutant’s world, the characters aren’t just adorable-looking animals; they’re really the scarred survivors of a post-apocalyptic world.

“It feels great to slide through a large enemy’s legs and catch them unaware from behind with a devastating combo,” Mike Futter composed for Polygon in 2018. “Each weapon has its own play style and a unique ‘super wushu’ attack that can be charged over time.”

Although playable on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 through backwards compatibility, BioMutant does not have a variation or improvements prepared for the brand-new generation of consoles.
