Biomutant is a role-play game where you play a Raccoon mammalian warrior in a world filled with mutated animals. Exploring this living breathing world has the feel of Zelda Breath of the Wild, but in a broken down steampunk aesthetic and with political implications to your actions.

After customising your unique character you head into the world. Through branching storylines you take on missions to heal the polluted tree of life, following each of its roots into different realms. In the large open world you encounter six tribes, three want to heal the tree and three plan to go their own way.

As you interact, fight and adventure you affect the world and the state of these tribes through the game's political simulation. Will you ally with one tribe to eliminate the others, or work with them all?

As you progress you collect weapon parts to craft your own unique weapon. You can also gain cryogenic and electrical enhancements that help you in the high-action battles. Winning these battles enables you to level up attacks and strengthen attributes

Some areas of the game require certain abilities or customised body parts. As you gain these you get access to more of the large, rich world. Weather and day-night changes as time passes and you can seamless explore anywhere you can see in the game. Some of this exploration requires some light puzzle solving such as limited oxygen supply or barriers that must be circumnavigated.

Biomutant was planned for a 2020 release, however it is now expect in 2021 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. There are some reports of Biomutant on Switch but this is unlikely and unconfirmed.
