GamesCom 2017: THQ Nordic And Indie Dev Experiment 101 Announce New Action-RPG, BioMutant

At Gamescom, THQ Nordic and indie developer Experiment 101, announced a brand new, original action-RPG entitled BioMutant. The new game will be coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2018.
BioMutant, lets players take advantage of “mutations, bionic prosthetics, and weapons” to customize characters to their liking.
The choices players make in augmenting their characters “impact the way the hero plays in real-time combat.” Combat is described as a cross between martial-arts and small-arms skirmishes.
BioMutant is set in an “imaginative post-apocalyptic universe” that can be explored via “mechs, paragliders, balloons, mounts, jet skis and more,” according to THQ Nordic.

For more on BioMutant and to see why the game looks like the closest thing we will get to a stand-alone Rocket Racoon game check out the announcement trailer above.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
