"World Trailer" for upcoming game 'Biomutant' released

After releasing a combat trailer last month, Experiment 101 is back with a new one for their upcoming title Biomutant titled "World Trailer". As the name suggests, it gives us a peek at the in-game universe devoid of any action as the video description writes that "there are too many fast-paced, dark and gritty trailers in this world anyway". Of note, this new trailer's audio and visuals have been captured in-game, so you can get an idea as to what to expect when it launches next month:




Biomutant is an open-world, post-apocalyptic Wung-Fu fable RPG, with unique martial art styled combat system allowing you to mix melee, shooting, and mutant ability action.

Below are some of the game's highlighted features:

  • A NEW TAKE ON 3rd PERSON COMBAT
    The martial arts style combat system allows you maximum freedom of movement and agility while mixing shooting, melee, and powers from your mutations. Learning new Wung-Fu combat forms through progression and learning from masters you’ll meet, will constantly add to your choices and make sure combat never gets old.
  • EVOLVE YOUR GAME-PLAY
    You’ll be able to re-code your genetic structure to change the way you look and play. This will of course affect your attributes and in addition to this, exposure to bio-contamination in the world will lead to mutations like the Turtleform and Mucus Bubble, while exposure to radioactivity found in bunkers from the old world will affect your mind and unlock psi-mutations like telekinesis, levitation and more.
  • NEXT LEVEL OF CRAFTING
    You are totally free when crafting weapons. Mix and match parts to create your own unique 1H or 2H slash and crush weapons. Revolvers, rifles and shotguns and add modifications like cork-screws and battery-powered chainsaw modules to bio-contaminated sludge vials adding to your combat arsenal. There are even characters you’ll meet that’ll craft cool stuff for you, like bionic wings, a jump-pack and even let you modify your Automaton - the scrap-toy sidekick!
  • GEAR UP FOR ADVENTURE
    You are totally free when equipping your character. Not only when it comes to choosing weapons you created, but what type of gear you wear. Equip a gas-mask and an oxygen tank for exploring the Dead Zones, thermos-resistant clothes for venturing into cryonic areas or protective gear for taking on bio-contaminated creatures, the choice is up to you.
  • SURVIVE IN A VIBRANT OPEN WORLD
    You are free to explore the world and what lies beneath its surface, by foot, mech, jet-ski, air-balloon or area unique mounts. Explore the dying wildland, the tunnels and bunker networks of the underworld, and find your way up the mountains or out in the archipelago. There are lots of discoveries to be made, mysteries to unravel, creatures to confront, and weird characters to meet in this vibrant and colorful world.
  • AN UNUSUAL STORY WITH AN UNUSUAL END
    Your actions play a major part in the unfolding of a story where End is coming to the New World. 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...
    You are guided through the world by a Storyteller that narrates every step of your journey, but it’s your actions and choices that’ll decide how your story of survival ends.
Biomutant is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 25th, 2021.

Looks pretty lovely, like a cross between Fallout and a Monolith Soft game. I'm cautiously optimistic but I worry the world will be a bit empty like Fallout 76 since they really didn't show much off in regards to characters or areas that are actually inhabited.

I have similar worries as they might have gone open world but without fleshing it out enough.

I'll be honest, I know a lot of people don't enjoy just running around an open world, but this looks slick. Just the different ways of getting around; didn't hear anything about this game before hand, but now I'm kinda hyped!

OK. Curiosity piqued. I am somewhat bored of wheelchair and pram accessible dungeons and post apocalyptic hellscapes and do like the option to clamber around a bit.

Haven't got any credits for the game but the head of the studio making it has a linkedin https://se.linkedin.com/in/stefanljungqvist which lists a bunch of others at the company.
He has been involved in a fair few things https://www.mobygames.com/developer/stefan-ljungqvist/credits/developerId,122793/
and that would include Just Cause 2 so some pedigree there on the making open worlds feel like something (say what you will about the unlock new areas missions in that being a bit repetitive but the rest was pretty solid).
