Biomutant is an upcoming open world, post-apocalyptic, kung-fu fable. It features anthropomorphic animals in a desperate struggle for survival. Experiment 101 is currently working on Biomutant for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The title is scheduled to launch in 2018, but aside from that, we don't know much about the project.
The game was one of the biggest surprises to come out of Gamescom 2017 due to its visuals and gameplay. From the trailer, it seems as though you can alter your appearance and skills if you're exposed to a particular mutagen. The fox-like character's hand turns into one resembling a salamander's after he touches a mysterious substance.
THQ Nordic announced the acquisition on Twitter and many gamers thought this was a promising move. If the developers are able to deliver a polished "AAA" game with that concept, it might resonate well with consumers. However, other individuals were skeptical. When jokingly asked if THQ Nordic were pulling an "EA", the publisher's Twitter handle said that they didn't close a studio before acquiring a new one.
No, we did not shut down a studio before it... @EA— THQ Nordic (@THQNordic) November 17, 2017
This, of course, refers to EA's decision to close Visceral Games and alter their single-player Star Wars game before they acquired Titanfall developers Respawn Entertainment. It seems like EA can't catch a break no matter what. In response to the loot crate controversy the company announced that they were pulling microtransactions. However, they'll be back at a later date when DICE can make the necessary balancing changes.
