Play OverviewPlay Overview

Biomutant (2021) is an open-world role-play adventure about a Raccoon warrior in a large world filled with mutated animals. Exploring this living breathing ecosystem has the feel of a Zelda game, but in a broken-down steampunk aesthetic and with political implications for your actions. It's a game about protecting the environment before it’s too late.

After choosing your character's appearance, attributes and career you head into the world. Through branching storylines, you take on missions to heal the polluted tree of life and save the planet, following each of its roots into different realms. In the large 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 parts to craft and enhance your unique weapon. You can also gain cryogenic and electrical enhancements that help you in 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 seamlessly 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.
