Filed under “Topics you’d never thought you would see in video games”, THQ Nordic formally announced its Kung-Fu Fable RPG Biomutant today at Gamescom.
A cinematic trailer was revealed, but no gameplay was shown during the announcement. It seems that Biomutant is going to have a story campaign focused around various sentient animals which can mutate/augment themselves with multiple types of weapons and abilities.
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, Biomutantis 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.
No release date was confirmed, but a window of sometime in 2018 was provided. We’ll have to wait to see more information as well as a gameplay reveal, but you can check out a flying raccoon with a glide suit and the cinematic trailer below in the meantime. There is also the official site.
