Biomutant

Adapt, improvise and overcome

Biomutant is an action-RPG that gives players the ability to mutant and evolve with biomechanical upgrades, taking on every challenge as they attempt to save the Tree of Life from being corrupted.

What is Biomutant?

Biomutant is a third-person "open-world, post-apocalyptic Kung-Fu fable RPG" in which you play a small, furry creature (whose appearance the player can customize) who is attempting to save their dying world. Judging by what you can see in the trailers, the "post-apocalyptic" part means that the world is actually our own, only now it's populated by sapient animals.

According to the game's description on Steam: "A plague is ruining the land and the Tree-of-Life is bleeding death from its roots. The Tribes stand divided, in need of someone strong enough to unite them or bring them all down."

Biomutant is being developed by Experiment 101, a Swedish studio acquired by Embracer Group (formerly THQ Nordic) in 2017.

Biomutant gameplay and features

We got some more details on Biomutant's gameplay when Experiment 101 released a combat trailer earlier this year. Here are a few things we know for sure:

The player character can use martial arts, melee weapons, and guns in their fighting style. They can also be fitted with prosthetics or mutations that change both the way they fight and how they navigate the world. For example, wings will allow you to reach high areas while breathing equipment is necessary to explore underwater. You can also craft and upgrade your own weapons.

In-game, you can ally with one of six different tribes, and you'll then have to further the goals of your tribe, whether they are good or evil. To conquer enemy tribes, you must attack each of their outposts, three in total, and then assault their fortresses. Once you defeat their sifu, you can decide whether to work with the new tribe or wipe them out. There will be a Karma system keeping track of your behavior, and the Tree of Life will change depending on whether your tribe's goals are peaceful or destructive. You can also abandon your tribe at any time if you don't like their goals.

The latest gameplay trailer was released by THQ Nordic in March.

You can check out a gameplay trailer from Gamescom 2018 below.

THQ Nordic also released a new 10-minute gameplay trailer earlier in 2020.

Will Biomutant have multiplayer?

No, Biomutant is a single-player RPG, and as of right now, the developers are not planning to include any multiplayer.

Is Biomutant open world?

Yes. Biomutant is an open world game, with vastly different regions and biomes to explore, each with their own challenges in the form of different enemies and environmental obstacles to overcome. Information from back in 2018 suggested the world had a dynamic day/night cycle, but we don't know if that's still the case in the finished game.

Biomutant's troubled development

Biomutant has been under construction for a long time, and there was no official trailer or footage of the game from anyone at Experiment 101 for years following its reveal. It's also been delayed several times. In February 2020, the developer posted an update to the Biomutant Twitter assuring their fans that the game was in "the final stages of development."

Biomutant collector's editions

In addition to the regular version of the game, there are two different special versions of Biomutant for those really looking to drop some cash. The first is simply called the Collector's Edition, and it includes a figurine of the player character, the soundtrack, and some official artwork, costing around $120. The second special version is the Atomic Edition, including a massive diorama, steelbook, t-shirt, mouse pad, and artwork for an extremely hefty $400.

When is the Biomutant release date ?

Originally revealed years ago, Biomutant finally has a release date of May 25, 2021. It's coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC. It will also be playable on PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S through backward compatibility. It is set to feature inmproved performance on these consoles.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
