    THQ Nordic Announces Experiment 101’s Kung Fu Fable BIOMUTANT

    THQ Nordic and independent developer Experiment 101 have revealed BIOMUTANT, a new and original open-world action RPG for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Explore a world in turmoil and define its fate – will you be the hero and savior or lead it to an even darker destiny?


    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, BIOMUTANT is 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.

    BIOMUTANT is expected to launch in 2018. The game will be playable at the THQ Nordic Booth at gamescom as well as at PAX West.

    THQ Nordic? I thought it was a division of THQ, a defunct video game company. Anyways the trailer looks cool.

    Cinematic... and as such fairly meaningless to me. That said it looks like something reasonably memorable and they have some good properties under their belt and in their acquisitions so I will actually be hopeful here, or at least hoping for something better than Jade Empire.
    also thing which popped into my head upon seeing that

    There itself.
    Can't say much about the gameplay from this trailer but it's nice to have some fresh IP. Also: looks like Kung Fu Panda on steroids :gun:

    IIRC THQ Nordic bought THQ and it's why they're called THQ Nordic. THQ Nordic has been doing a fantastic job with their line of games.

    Battle Chaser: Nightwar is my favorite upcoming game of theirs but I read they may delay the Switch version.

    It's a shame that Ubisoft snatched the South Park THQ game because it most likely would be better off on THQ Nordic's hands.
